The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and its Search and Rescue team rescued an injured cross country skier Monday evening at Virginia Meissner Sno-park.
Rebeckah Berry, 34, of Bend, was skiing alone when she fell about a quarter-mile south of the Nordeen Shelter. She managed to make her way to the shelter and waited there for the search-and- rescue team, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Four team members on snowmobiles found Berry at 6:10 p.m. She was carried to the Swampy Lakes Sno-park parking lot and then to her vehicle. Berry suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
