ski patrol olympics
Squaw Valley hosts the first ever Ski Patrol Olympics April 16-18.

Ski patrol performs some pretty gnarly tasks: transporting injured skiers down the mountain at high speeds, detonating explosives to prevent avalanches and leading search and rescue missions on formidable terrain. This weekend at California’s Squaw Valley, patrollers from across North America will showcase their skills in the first ever Professional Ski Patrol Olympics. Contenders will compete for prizes and a $1,500 cash purse, courtesy of Helly Hansen.
