A Bozeman woman is in the hospital undergoing surgery for a fracture in her spine, as well treatment for a broken leg and forearm following a summer skiing accident in the Bridger Mountains. The woman was skiing on Sacajawea peak when she hit icy and lost one of her skis, causing her to lose control and fall 600 feet down the mountain, hitting her head with so much force it broke her ski helmet.

The woman was rescued from the mountain by Gallatin County Search and Rescue who called in a helicopter to fly her to the nearest hospital.
