Skiers rescued on Mount Washington in record heat – Boston News, Weather, Sports

MOUNT WASHINGTON, NH (AP) — The summit of Mount Washington experienced record-breaking heat on Saturday, but it was still ski season for some others on the mountain, including a woman who was rescued after a bad fall in a ravine.

The woman, an experienced backcountry skier, tripped and fell several hundred feet onto rocks in the Great Gulf Saturday afternoon, according to the New Hampshire Fish and Game. Other skiers helped take them at least 700 feet (213 m) to the edge of the gulf, and they later flagged down a train from the cog railway to take them down the mountain. Her injuries were not classified as life-threatening.

The temperature at the summit reached 62 degrees, setting a new daily record.
