Officials rescued a 20-year-old woman Wednesday night after she fell into a ravine while hiking on Flagstaff Mountain, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies said they were called to the Baseline picnic area of the mountain at 7:35 p.m. on reports of a trapped hiker.
The woman was hiking back to her vehicle with another hiker when she slipped in the dark, snowy conditions and tumbled down the steep ravine. She and her companion were unable to get her out.
With the help of rescue teams, the trapped hiker was able to walk back to the road. Crews then took her to a hospital.
The rescue took less than two hours.
Officials from the sheriff’s office, Boulder Fire Department, Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, Mountain View Fire Protection District and Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks assisted in the rescue.
