The 12 members of the Mount Peter Young Adult Patroller (YAP) program are finishing up another stellar season on snow. Each patroller put in well over 100 hours on the snow this year assisting the Patrol in every aspect of day to day operations including: setting up and/or breakdown of the mountain; assisting patrollers in the care of injured skiers/riders; acting as a strong liaison to the skiing and riding community; and promoting safety and personal responsibility. The group is advised by Jim Mehling and Michael Meade.
These amazing young adults performed at the highest possible standard all while attending school full time, and most holding down part time jobs and/or playing sports. They trained alongside full-time patrollers and worked towards their certification for ski and toboggan handling. Two members will obtain their medical certification in Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) this year, which is an EMT level certification as a first responder. The remaining ten members will work towards and obtain the same certification next season.

In a continuing effort to support this group the Mount Peter Ski Patrol will host its second annual golf outing on Fri., Jun. 2 at the Hickory Hill Golf Course, located at 156 Rte. 17A in Warwick. Information can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
