Abstract

The Steamboat Mountain Ski Patrol incorporates local emergency physicians and a visiting trauma surgeon as a second-tier response to life-threatening mountain events. The case of a 48-year-old man surviving a potentially lethal postinjury tension pneumothorax and a review of the 1989–1990 major trauma experience on this ski mountain underscores the value of this concept.
