The Next Generation Of Patrollers


"On Dec. 16, 32 lucky girls between the ages of 8 and 16 became ski patrollers for a day at Crystal Mountain in Washington as part of an inaugural SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol day camp. Taught by female ski patrollers and energized by a steady flow of hot cocoa, the girls learned about first aid, avalanche control, snow science, weather stations, driving toboggans, avalanche rescue techniques and patrol dogs."

Teton Gravity Research writer Jill Sanford chats with the SheJumps crew and the little ladies who are going to grow up to be your savior the next time you french fry when you should have pizza'd.
