Woman airlifted to Calgary hospital after 'high fall' in Banff National Park: EMS

A woman was taken to hospital on Friday after a fall in the Rocky Mountains.

An EMS spokesperson told Global News that emergency crews were called at 10:50 a.m. about an incident at the Grand Daddy Couloir, a steep ski line north of Lake Louise. The Grand Daddy Couloir is on Bow Peak in Banff National Park, about 30 kilometres north of Lake Louise.

EMS said the woman — whom they believe is in her 20s — sustained serious injuries after a “high fall.” In an update late Friday afternoon, EMS said while the injuries remain serious, they were not life-threatening.

EMS said a ground ambulance responded to a hostel near Bow Peak just off of Highway 93 Friday morning.

The woman was airlifted to Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, according to EMS.
