Educating and certifying professional
patrollers since 1969!
Annual Conference May 2-6, Mammoth Mountain, CA
Thank you to all who joined us for the 2022 Annual Conference. Those who attended can attest to the wonderful week of learning and friendship that shined through this year's event. As in years past, testing occurred throughout the week. But this year, we were able to offer more educational sessions to the week, which received great feedback. Our generous sponsors make the week possible. We look forward to expanding this format of the Annual conference in 2023! But in the meantime, here are some highlights from this year!
Candidate of the Clinic
Az Solowiej from Mt. Ashland, OR was the candidate of the clinic, certifying in 2 tests at the Annual Conference with a perfect score on his explosives test and a 99% on his Ropes test. He also certified in three categories at the mid-winter clinic at Mt. Ashland this season.
An honorable mention went to Max Herman from Red River, NM also passed two tests at the annual conference and 5 total this season!
The aerial evacuation demo and clinic was a big hit and the most attended educational component of the clinic. Devin Hiemstra, Assistant Patrol Director at Mt. Rose, NV and rope guru lead the event. We look forward to expanding the rope education opportunities in the future.
The Women's Clinic presented with Women of Patrol was a great day of building connections and training with other female patrollers. Thank you Marker Products for creating and donating the Women of Patrol goggles for the event!
On the final day we grabbed our jorts (and some pairs of snowblades) to have some fun before going our separate ways eager about being together again in 2023!
