Congratulations to the Alyeska Ski Patrol. They have won the National Outstanding Large Alpine Patrol Award for 2009. We love to acknowledge the Ski Patrol services here at The Ski Channel because they really are our best friends out there. What we do can be dangerous and risky, and the Ski Patrol is always there to save our butts when we need it.

The National Ski Patrol chose the Alyeska Ski Patrol for their outstanding teamwork, their handling of Class A avalanches, their handling of extreme freeskiing events, and their overall dedication to safety and service.

Don Spencer is Alyeska’s National Ski Patrol rep: “On the hill, everyone works together. Whether it’s a broken leg in an out-of-bounds area or managing safety at an extreme event, every member of patrol contributes to the process and there is arguably no better snow safety team in the country.”

Congrats to the team at Alyeska, and thank you for your service.
