SKI PATROL For many, sub-zero temperatures, arctic winds and relentless precipitation are all excellent reasons to remain in bed on a cold winter morning. For the Sun Valley Ski Patrol, these conditions are what make for a great day at the Photo: Barry Irwin office. America’s original and longest tenured ski patrol, the SVSP consists of snow scientists, explosives experts, high angle rescue professionals, world-class skiers, paramedics, EMTs and avalanche mitigators. These men and women wake long before sunrise to meet the first rays of the day on top of Bald Mountain, the Rocky Mountain peak they love so much. As the day’s work details are discussed at the daily morning meeting, the crew reviews weather reports, snowpack surveys and shares in a tradition of toasting the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Immediately after the meeting concludes, the dedicated members of this fraternity walk outside and click into their skis, off to prepare the mountain for an on time opening as they have done every winter day since 1936. And though untouched ski slopes and the beauty of a new day make for a spectacular work environment, the Sun Valley ski patrolmen and women agree that serving their guests is the greatest satisfaction of all.
