Boarder Brian Carley now `stable’

Aspen Times Staff Report

Injured snowboarder Brian Carley’s condition has been upgraded to “stable” and he is no longer receiving “critical care,” according to a nursing supervisor at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction.

Carley was moved from the hospital’s intensive care unit Friday.

“We wouldn’t move him out of critical care unless he were stable,” the supervisor said.

Carley, 27, of Aspen, suffered a ruptured aorta and other chest injuries in a snowboarding accident at Buttermilk Mountain on Feb. 3. He hit a tree on Savio Flats.

Carley reportedly underwent extensive surgery the night of the accident to treat his injuries.
