I would like to introduce the latest class of “Senior Alpine Patrollers” to the PNS Ski Patrol. On February 9 and 10th, 6 eager Senior Candidates from PNS were tested in one or more of the Senior ski, toboggan and/or OEC modules. Once all the dust settled, Carole Cangionic, Carol Teter, Scott Gilb and Stephanie Hilgefort completed their Senior journey and were awarded their Senior Alpine Patroller certificates. Scott Chitwood took the first step of this journey and “kicked ass” in the Senior OEC test. Please join me and congratulate all these individuals on their accomplishments.
I also want to thank everyone that participated as an evaluator, trained help or patient during this weekend of testing. Without all this volunteer help, this event would not have been possible.
