At Ski Sundown in New Hartfod, CT today, a skier fell off the slopes and was knocked unconscious.

A LifeStar helicopter was called to come and transport him to a hospital, but was later called off when he regained consciousness. He is now in Hartford Hospital and appears to be OK, although the severity of the injury is not completely known.

Seems like National Ski Area Association Safety Awareness Week is coming just in time…
