Young Adult Patroller’s take on Bolton Valley in Vermont

Prepared for anything, NH Region Young Adult Patroller’s (YAP) eagerly arrived at Bolton Valley in Richmond, Vermont for the Eastern Division Young Adult Patroller’s Seminar on Friday, March 17. With recent storms providing over 20 inches of new snow, the group spent most of the morning and afternoon on the slopes, running the bull wheels ragged. Dinner in the Athletic Center came after check-in, and the YAP’s made their way to their first meeting focusing on Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) equipment required for all events, throughout the weekend.

Uploaded 06-24-2011 229We’re bringing back the NH Region Patrollers Banquet… This year on April 22, 2017 Ragged Mountain Resort in Danbury NH will be hosting our Patrollers Banquet.

The newly hybridized online NSP Instructor Development Course is finally available to students who prefer a self paced/self motivated avenue towards becoming a Instructor.  NH Region ID staff is encouraging that all future instructor’s choose this method of learning.  More of the didactic learning has been moved to the Knowledge Direct Web and has been hybridized, similar to OEC refreshers.  This allows for more one-on-one Instructor interaction focusing on preparing the student for completing the practical exercises.  This newly reconstructed online course allows NSP’s future instructors a faster more individualized avenue for moving into the mentor-ship model where the discipline specific training begins.
