Bonnie Prudden-First woman to earn Ski Patrol Badge

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

If you don't know it by now, you soon will......

I follow Kim Kircher's Blog and am continually inspired by her writing and her insights. 

 

A few days ago she wrote about Bonnie Prudden who (in Kim's words) was the first woman to earn a National Ski Patrol badge, an exercise expert before there was even a name for such a thing, and a champion of children’s fitness. 

 

I briefly read the blog and thought I'd try to take time to get back to it later.  I'm glad I got back to it later. 

 

I'd like to join Kim with an EpicSki High Fives for Bonnie.  

 

If you haven't heard of her, you really should take a look.

She is well known here in the Berkshires, has, or had a myotheraphy practice in either Stcokbridge or Lenox for years.

She was an active climber back in the day as well.  Cool life's story.

When I saw the thread title the name Bonnie Prudden was vaguely familiar, but it wasn't until i opened the link to Kim Kircher's blog and saw the cover of Sports Illustrated that i figured out why i sorta knew of her. My dad had a charter subscription to Sports Illustrated in the 1950s so that issue was in our house in 1957 and I no doubt read the article 55 years ago.

Hi!
My name is Lisa del giudice. I was one of the first professional ski patrol women in this country. I was hired at June Mt in California, (a subsidiary of a Mammoth Mt), in 1979 just after I acquired my EMT 1A. I later went on to be the assistant ski patrol director before going to work on the Mammoth Mt ski patrol. smile.gif
