Boy Seriously Injured While Skiing Christmas Day

In News

NPS: On Christmas Day, just before closing time, a seven-year-old boy who was downhill skiing in the Eagle Bowl at Badger Pass Ski Area collided with another skier and suffered a fractured femur. The boy was stabilized on the ski slope and transported to the first aid station by members of the Badger Pass ski patrol, Badger Pass rangers, and Wawona rangers. Due to the seriousness of the injury and the length of time it would take to transport him by ambulance, a medevac helicopter was requested. The helicopter landed at the base of the ski area just before dark and flew the boy to Fresno Medical Center, where he underwent surgery the following day.
