JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (AP) — A skier from Jackson had to be helped off the slopes at the Olympics after hitting a gate during the women’s slalom.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports Resi (RAY’-zee) Stiegler hooked a gate with her right ski during her first run Thursday, sending her sliding down the mountain. She was able to stand up on her own after the crash.

The 32-year-old is competing in her third and possibly final Olympics in Pyeongchang (PYONG-chaang).
