New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is nursing injured ribs and a wrist after she fell while skiing at Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Adirondack Winter Challenge.

Hochul told the Adirondack Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1BiHPsW ) that she was injured Sunday while on the slopes at Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington. She was treated at a local hospital.

Hochul later showed up with her right arm in a sling while attending a reception dinner with Cuomo at the conference center in nearby Lake Placid. She didn't reveal the extent of her injuries.

Cuomo, Hochul and state legislators were in Lake Placid and Wilmington for the second Adirondack Winter Challenge, a state-led event to promote tourism in the North Country. The governor's entourage spent the day skiing, ice fishing, tobogganing and snowmobiling in the Lake Placid area.
