Stowe Mountain Rescue (SME) assisted Cambridge Rescue and Fire with a female patient who turned her ankle while hiking on the Sterling Pond Trail about 200 yards below the intersection with Snuffys ski trail. The subject was unable to bear weight.

Cambridge Fire and Rescue accessed the subject, immobilized her injured ankle, and packaged her in a Stokes litter.  Cambridge Team determined it would be best to evacuate the subject up to Snuffys with the help of SMR. 
Cambridge requested SMR bring an ATV to the Snuffys/Sterling Pond Trail intersection and assist with the evacuation. 
SMR accessed Snuffys by the Spruce Peak work road. Two team members accessed Snuffys/Sterling Pond Trail intersection with an ATV; four team members and SMR pickup staged at the top of the Sensation Quad on Spruce Peak. 
The litter and patient were moved up to the ATV waiting on Snuffys and then transported by ATV down the work road.  She was then delivered to Cambridge Rescue for transportation to Copley Hospital.
