Injured Skier

The victim was hiking up Left Gully to ski when he fell approximately 50′ and hit a rock. He suffered a laceration on his right forearm. It was bandaged with a fleece coat and shoe string on scene by a bystander to stop the bleeding. He descended the gully and sought assistance from the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol. His laceration was assessed and bandaged. He was advised he would probably need stitches. He was able to walk out to Pinkham on his own. This incident took 2 people 15 minutes.
