A 35-year-old male, a season's pass holder, sustained a hip injury when he collided with a tree in Moonlight Bowl near Jamieson Ridge.

As this was an out of bounds rescue, RCMP and COSAR (Central Okanagan Search and Rescue) were dispatched, along with avalanche technicians.

BC Ambulance Service was dispatched for what was described as a lower back/hip injury.
