Kitimat Search Rescue was called out Sunday to rescue an injured snowmobiler in the Anderson Lake area of Claque Mountain.
BC Ambulance called out the SAR members after the male hit a tree on his machine and suffered multiple injuries.
With daylight fading fast, search members worked with the Kitimat Fire Department and two paramedics to get the injured snowmobiler out by helicopter before the short window of opportunity closed.
Kitimat Search and Rescue says the patient was transported to Kitimat General Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
There is no word on his condition.
