A New Zealand freeskier has been hospitalised after a serious crash at the Winter X Games in Aspen.
Rose Battersby, from Taupo, crashed during a warm-up session before the Jeep Ski Slopestyle Women's final, said the NZ Snowsports Council.
According to ESPN, she suffered a lumbar spine fracture, but was moving and could feel all her extremities.
Aspen Valley Medical centre said Battersby was in a stable condition.
In the same competition last year, the 20-year-old finished ninth in the women's slopestyle competition.
Battersby said on her website it was her goal to compete at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia.
