The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Whakapapa Ski Field to a 30-year-old male.
The man had lost control while skiing and had broken his lower leg. He was treated by medics and a cast was applied by Whakapapa medical staff before being airlifted to Waikato Hospital for further medical attention.
