A 23-year-old man was airlifted to hospital after hitting a tree while skiing in Lake Louise, Alta., on Saturday.
STARS air ambulance was dispatched to Mineral Springs Hospital in Banff around 3 p.m., a spokesperson confirmed.
The skier was airlifted to the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary in stable, non-life-threatening condition.
