Eric Brimlow, 27, of Syracuse, New York, fell from the rim of the Crater Lake caldera in Crater Lake National Park after venturing beyond a barrier wall at Sinnott Memorial overlook.
Reports say he had jumped from a walkway onto a snow bank, then slid down several hundred feet of steep terrain, coming to rest at the base of a tree 300 feet below the rim.
Rangers immediately sent rescue equipment to him, hoisting him first to a small ledge, then to a litter that took him to rim of the crater, reports say.
He suffered serious injuries and was transported from the park to the Rogue Valley Medical Center in Medford, Oregon.
