Skier alive after ‘exceptional’ rescue

A SKIER was airlifted to hospital on Sunday after an ‘exceptional’ 12-hour rescue operation, writes Neill Bo Finlayson.

Twenty-two Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team members helped rescue the stranded skier, who had suffered multiple injuries after falling 200m (656ft) through a cornice on Aonach Beag.

The rescue has been described by the team as ‘one of the most difficult and technical rescues’ carried out in the past year.
