California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger broke his leg while skiing with his family, a spokesman said.
Schwarzenegger was taken to a hospital for X-rays and was discharged with a fracture to his right femur following the accident Saturday morning, said Adam Mendelsohn, the governor's Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications.
He will have surgery to repair the bone when he returns to Los Angeles, Mendelsohn said. The governor remained at his Sun Valley home Saturday night and still planned to spend Christmas there.
