On Saturday, a 31-year-old snowboarder was seriously injured on Japan’s Mt Fuji. It has been reported that the snowboarder lost control on an icy patch between the eighth and ninth stations on the Yoshida-Osawa slope. He then fell, tumbling down the the side of the iconic mountain for the length of a full station. His fall resulted in a fractured spine and other injuries. Police say that the man was airlifted by a Yamanashi Prefecture rescue helicopter and flown to an area hospital in Kofu, where his condition is unknown at this time.
