Coconino County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue crews had to rescue a skier off of Fremont Peak Sunday evening. The 25-year-old Flagstaff man had been skiing down a path known as Telemark and fell, causing a shoulder injury that made it impossible for him to continue. The group he was with called for help and began to help him down the toe of the path where the terrain was less steep. A rescue team, along with medical crews, drove the Sheriff’s Office snowcat to the Lockett Meadow campground and then hiked to the snow study cabins were the people were. Crews arrived at the party at 1:30 a.m. Monday. The skier was put in a hypothermia wrap and they started back down in the snowcat. The group reached the ambulance at the bottom at around 3:30 a.m. Luckily the skier and his party were well-prepared for the elements and were able to call for help. The skier was transported to Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment.
