Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is recovering today after breaking his leg while skiing with his family this morning in Sun Valley, Idaho.

A spokesman says Schwarzenegger was taken to a local hospital for X-rays and was soon discharged with a fracture to his right femur.

Schwarzenegger plans to have surgery to repair his femur when he returns to Los Angeles from his scheduled Christmas trip. The governor remained at his Sun Valley home tonight and still planned to spend the holiday there.

Spokesman Adam Mendelsohn says no one else was involved in the accident.
