Patrol Update 4/21

Northstar Patrol Team

As some of you have heard I’ve accepted a new role at Northstar as our Senior Manager of Snow Surfaces. In this role I’ll have oversight over Snowmaking, Grooming, Terrain Parks and summer construction projects. The decision to move on from patrol after 20 years was certainly not an easy one but it feels like the right time to open a new chapter in my mountain operations career. As our scheduled closing day passed this last weekend I found myself reminiscing of how good the spring skiing can be in the Sierras and how I wish that we all were closing out a season together. Kurt will continue to be your point of contact for patrol matters and when the time comes for us to get back to work I won’t be a stranger. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with this team over the years and have created a number of relationships that will last a lifetime. I hope that many of you will find the satisfaction from patrolling that I have found over the years, it may just be the best job on the planet.
