Emergency teams were able to rescue two hikers in Smugglers Notch Saturday night, one of whom had severe head injuries after falling roughly 150 feet.

The two men were in "very steep and unstable terrain," trying to descend the west side of the notch above the main parking lot, according to Stowe Mountain Rescue head Doug Veliko. There are no maintained hiking trails on that side of the notch.
