The skier lost a ski and fell about 100 yards, Snohomish County sheriff's Lt. Kathi Lang said. The Stevens Pass ski patrol was the first to reach the skier, who was found at the 5,200-foot level, east of the Stevens Pass ski area.
Sheriff's deputies from Snohomish and Chelan counties joined the rescue effort.
The initial call went out around 11:30 a.m. Rescue helicopter SnoHawk 10 reached the area around 1 p.m., authorities said. A crew used a backboard and hoist to raise the man, who is in his late 20s. He was flown to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.
