Thread Starter 

Great behind-the-scene look at the work Ski Patrol does to keep us all safe......this is Snowbird's Team.  Kudos to them and all the patrollers out there!

I love the Ski Utah Powder People, my favorite would be the feature on my buddy Dibbs.

So much respect for what patrollers do. Those early am powder turns are very well deserved.

Been through that Snowbord patroller mission control room in search of duct tape. It was a busy place even in the middle of a calm weekday. The patrollers were friendly, professional and loaded with duct tape.

"Walkie set up"? Not sure what you're referring to - the radios? Those are pretty standard, no cause for hilarity there.

Yes -- the radios.  I liked the across-the-chest harness and the wrap-around shoulder mike -- very ergonomic and practical.  For me, I found humor in that, from that video, their radio set-up was the thing I kept looking at.  I suppose humor is like human sexuality -- no telling what turns some people on.

Ah, I see. Well, I typically give a generous allowance for a randomly quirky sense of humor, so...okay! biggrin.gif

Those chest harnesses are pretty standard for patrollers that aren't wearing vests, and wildland firefighters use 'em a lot as well.
