Snow closed roads meant a trip to Tangiwai shortly after 9.30am for the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter.
A man in his 20’s had fallen from a snow sled after being towed behind a quad bike. The man had hit a tree and injured his ankles and lower back.
He has treated at the scene by Dewet Pienaar the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being flown to Whanganui Hospital.
