Welcome Back…

Hello New Hampshire,

While we are just beginning the 2017/2018 season (and some resorts are still not operating yet), I feel like we are already in mid-season given all of the activity. With a full OEC class, an MTR 1 clinic, an Instructor Development class, refreshers, and several Region meetings, all having been completed, it has been a very active fall. Add to that the National Board election and its associated meetings, discussions and conference calls, and it’s easy to understand how ski patrolling is stretching beyond the typical mid-December to March timeframe.

With regard to the National Board election, regardless of the outcome, there are some much needed “thank you’s” to be given: To the New Hampshire Region Staff for being so supportive and willing to carry out the election messaging; to Patrol Directors for welcoming and allowing Region Staff precious time at refreshers to discuss the election and its issues, and for their encouragement of their Patrollers to exercise their right to vote; and, lastly, to all New Hampshire Region Patrollers, for your willingness to listen to us, the thoughtful questions that you asked, and your desire to do the right thing to protect this organization that we all love. However, As I cautioned the groups that I spoke with this fall, this is not a one-and-done exercise. The commitment that you all demonstrated this year in working to understand the National issues, and especially how they impact you and your Patrol (and they do), will, unfortunately, need to be carried forward. While we will be there carrying the message, we will need you to do the heavy lifting…….continue to ask questions and continue to vote.

I would also like to call your attention to our completely redeveloped website, in case you had not taken notice. The redesign incorporates easier navigation, new information, and a cleaner, more modern design. The site is where you will find our calendar of events, online registration, and contact information. While a number of people had input into the design, Northern Section Chief 0rest 0har is owed the Region’s gratitude for his extensive time and effort in carrying out the technical redevelopment. Check it out!!!

As noted above, several training classes/clinics have already been completed this fall. This, really, is a testament to the knowledgeable and dedicated training staff we are lucky to have here in New

Sunday River PATROLLER SCHOOL Registration

Eastern Division Outdoor Emergency Transportation (OET) and EMARI region asked NH to help register NSP members division-wide seeking to attend the SUNDAY RIVER PATROLLER SCHOOL.

EMARI and Maine Regions partner annually to organize the event, which attracts more than 80 NSP participants. Patrollers come from all over the division to attend a two-day Patroller School where Toboggan Enhancement and Snowsport Enhancement seminars are offered at all levels. NH Region was asked to help streamline registration using our web-based educational event and e-commerce computer servers.

The goal is to provide customers seeking ski patrol specific training to have a simplified registration page for choosing courses during the two-day event. Follow this link to the Sunday River PATROLLER SCHOOL Registration to see the course offerings. There are toboggan, skiing, and snowboarding events. Instructors looking for final certification and TE Candidates needing an evaluation, come together with Division Staff members and NSP members purchasing personalized ski patrolling educational seminars. It’s like receiving small group lessons on the terrain of Sunday River — choose senior level lessons or intermediate level for those who want an informative stress-free seminar. The Eastern Division Women’s Program also offers women-only events.
