I just got an email form NSP asking if we could hold off a week as they are slightly behind in processing class closures, F07320004 and 06 as that is what updates the cards

Patrol Update

We have had many questions regarding any changes in protocols and patrol requirements due to COVID for the upcoming season.

Understanding  that COVID is a fluid situation, we are still working out many of the details that may impact us as Volunteer Patrollers. We apologize that we cannot respond to the many specific questions at this time. As we learn more, we will continue to keep you updated.

Here are a couple of points that we have confirmed:

  1. If you elect to patrol, additional training will be required for COVID procedures.
  2. Each Patroller will be fitted for an N95 mask and as a result no beards, clean shaven is required.
  3. A mustache is acceptable. Goatee’s are TBD.
  4. Since Cycle A is online, no comps will be issued.
  5. NSP ($60) and ESR ($20) dues are nonrefundable.
  6. Northstar dues ( $85 minus ESR $20 =$65) refund policy is indicated below:

If Northstar does not open, we will refund $65 to each Patroller.

If Northstar  does opens regardless of the date, NO refund.

  • If you elect not to Patrol this year and go to inactive status, you must notify us by opening day. A refund will be issued and all passes will be terminated.
  • If you elect to go inactive after the season opens, NO refunds, passes and comps will be cancelled.

We understand that everyone has a different level of  personal safety and risk exposure and it is difficult to make a decision whether to patrol this year or not.

We are requesting that if you have made the decision NOT to patrol, please advise Mike or myself ASAP.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to communicate that question or concern by email and include your phone number. Based on the email, we will respond and if necessary call you for any additional clarification.

Please do not text or make a phone call.us an email will not get a response.

Northstar Team update

It’s official that Kurt Gale is the new Patrol director for Northstar and in addition we have the announcement below of Kolina Coe as Assistant Patrol Director.

It’s my pleasure to announce that Kolina Coe will be the new Assistant Director of Ski Patrol, effective immediately. Kolina was most recently a Team Lead on the patrol team here at Northstar and has been with us for 11 years working with the Mtn bike park and ski patrol.

Through her time here at Northstar, Kolina has had the opportunity to grow as a leader and expand her scope beyond our ski patrol. She holds a seat on the POWDER committee and the patrol project where she has built strong relationships with patrol teams and other leaders across the enterprise. She was awarded the most outstanding paid patroller in 2019 by the National Ski Patrol Far West Division, volunteers with the National Ski Patrol and was appointed the Pro Women Liaison for the country in 2018.  She is an active member in the local avalanche community and holds a NAS Pro1 Avalanche certification. She is a co-founder of the Northstar Avalanche Rescue dog program and hopes to add a new member to the team in January.  In her off time Kolina enjoys hunting, camping, traveling, skiing and biking.

Please join me in congratulating Kolina on her new role at Northstar.

Forrest Memorial update

Unfortunately, due to the fire ban in place in both California and Nevada, Megan and our team have decided to postpone the Bon Fire Memorial until a later date. I understand many of you have already made travel arrangements and I am deeply apologetic for any inconvenience this has caused. As of now, Megan is leaning towards doing the memorial closer to the bomb salute and 7/10 tour in the middle of the season. Help spread the word.

Thank you for the understanding and hope you are well.
