WENATCHEE — A Seattle man was injured and airlifted to Harborview Medical Center Friday after colliding with a tree at Mission Ridge Ski Area.

Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett said Raymond Farbarik, 47, lost control about 10 a.m. while skiing on the Kiwa run off Chair 3. Witnesses said Farbarik lost one ski just before making a right cut and traveled off the left-hand edge of the run, striking the tree.
