Here are a few Rescue Sled options you can get to transport an injured skier or snowboarder while out in the backcountry:

Brooks Range Ultralite Rescue Sled
K2 Rescue Shovel & Ice Axe Plus hardware
Alpine Threadworks Ski Guides Rescue Tarp

Optionally, you can try an jerry-rig together a rescue sled using the injured skiers skis and poles along with Voile ski straps.
