KALISPELL, Mont. (AP Press Release)—U.S. Ski Team member Dane Spencer has been released from the hospital following an injury during a race at Big Mountain on Feb. 14.

Spencer, 28, was released on Wednesday after spending over a week at Kalispell Regional Medical Center.

Spencer, who is from Boise, Idaho, suffered a concussion, a fractured pelvis, and neck and back injuries when he crashed during the Doug and Rollie Smith Memorial Downhill competition, according to Dr. Melinda Roalstad, the U.S. Ski Team's medical doctor.

He fell after a jump and tumbled and slid about 200 yards before stopping, apparently unconscious.

Spencer finished ninth in the first day of downhill racing at Big Mountain near Whitefish in northwestern Montana last week. He is a member of the U.S. World Cup ``A-Team,'' a group of 17 men and women that includes Olympians Bode Miller and Ted Ligety, the gold medalist in the men's combined.
