A skier was taken to the hospital Saturday afternoon by UW Health's Med Flight after hitting a light pole at Tyrol Basin, the Dane County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies responded to the call from the ski area near Mount Horeb about 1:55 p.m. and were there until shortly after 3:30 p.m., Lt. Chris Moore said. The skier was taken to UW Hospital by Med Flight about 3:15 p.m. 

Moore said Tyrol Basin's own medics were on the scene and with the skier when Med Flight arrived. Sheriff's deputies helped to coordinate landing with Med Flight and direct traffic away from the area. 

Tyrol Basin owner Nathan McGree said the female skier was "stable and in good condition" when she left on Med Flight.
