Three hikers went up Mount Olympus earlier today to have some fun in what's left of the snow on the mountain.
But what started out as a day of fun... quickly turned dangerous... when both female hikers lost control and fell.
sport that's a lot like sledding... except in glaceding you strap on some boots ... find the steepest part of the mountain... that has a deep snowpack.
Then you use the boots to slide down it.
But the two women lost control... and fell down the mountain.
With a critical head injury, Sherry couldn't be moved, but lifeflight couldn't get to her either.
Sgt. Les Powers Salt Lake County Sherriff's Office: "BECAUSE OF THE ANGLE OF WHERE THEY'RE AT, THE HELICOPTER DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH CABLE TO GET HIGH ENOUGH SO THAT THEY HELICOPTER WOULD BE SAFE AND THE CABLE COULD LET THE PERSONEL DOWN TO BRING THEM OUT."
Search and Rescue crews strapped Sherry to a tobaggon type sled and moved her to a spot where Lifeflight could hoist her up off the mountain.
The other injured hiker... walked down off the mountain with an elbow injury.
