Fernie SAR was tasked earlier today to assist an injured skier in the backcountry.

The skier was part of a group in the Little Sand area and sustained a serious neck injury during a fall.

Fernie SAR responded with two Avalanche Technicians who stabilised the man in a helicopter and delivered him to BCAS in Fernie.
