BC Ambulance and Terrace Search and Rescue at Onion Lake Ski Trails to extract a cross-country skier suffering a broken leg after a fall. A SAR team used a tracked Rhino all-terrain vehicle to reach the female skier at the junction of the Big and Little Dog trails, as other skiers were already on scene with a sleeping bag and inflatable pad lessening the effects of hypothermia. SAR administered first aid, splinted the injured leg and transported the victim inside a towed rescue skimmer, provided by the ski trails attendant, to awaiting paramedics in the parking lot. “Its was a great effort by all these groups of people working together to achieve a positive outcome to this event,” said SAR president Dwayne Sheppard in a Facebook post.
