The helmet had been completely destroyed and probably saved his life, the message said.
The mountain rescue service rescued the man from the difficult to walk area. On the rope of a rescue helicopter, the helpers flew the seriously injured to an intermediate landing site for first aid, and later to a Salzburg hospital.
Several accidents in the past few weeks
In the past few days, the Berchtesgaden mountain rescue service had to move out several times. On Wednesday a racer fell while training on the icy slope. She was seriously injured in the process. A member of the ski watch happened to be nearby providing first aid. A rescue helicopter later flew them to a hospital.
The woman still had to receive emergency medical care on site in the valley and was later taken to a hospital.
