Arnold was climbing on a section of Bridal Veil Falls known as Stairway to Heaven in Provo Canyon. She was climbing with John Lavalla, 34, also from the Park City area.

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office said the two were 30 to 40 feet onto the ice. She fell the entire 30 to 40 feet and the man fell approximately 30 feet, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Arnold was flown by a medical helicopter to the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City. Details about her injuries were not released.

Lavalla was also injured and taken by ambulance to a hospital in Provo with non-life-threatening injuries.

Stairway to Heaven is located between 900 and 1,200 feet down the canyon from the main flow of Bridal Veil Falls.
