Jill Kinmont was a good skier who almost went to the Olympics in 1956. In 1955, Jill Kinmont had an accident on the ski slopes. Kinmont fell and became paralyzed. She was almost 19 years old.
Jill Kinmont had a good rehab and went on to graduate from college. Kinmont took on the vocation of being a teacher. Kinmont suffered a second great tragedy when her good friend and boyfriend, Dick Buek, was killed in a plane accident.
Two movies were made out of Jill Kinmont’s life. “The Other Side Of The Mountain” and “The Other Side Of The Mountain II” were based on the life story of Jill Kinmont.
