As many of you know, on 04/06/2006 Three Mammoth Mountain Ski Patrollers lost their lives while doing "routine" safety control work after a major snowstorm.
Info on Incident
After the tragedy there were MM forum threads discussing the development of Helmet/Ski/Snowboard stickers to memorialize the tragedy and to raise some money for MM Ski Patrol. I have spoken with Bobby Hoyt about using the proceeds to help build a monument on the mountain to honor the fallen patrollers.
This concept was approved by the Director of Ski Patrol and the board of the Eastern Sierra Avalanche Center. [Walter Rosenthal was the President of the ESAC] Everyone supported the concept of the stickers and liked the designs. The Mammoth Mountain patrollers chose the design that has been produced.
The stickers are designed to be worn on helmets, skis, snowboards, automobiles or SUVs, or any place you would like to display them. Their size is about 3 1/2" by 2". They are laminated and will stand up under exposure to rain or snow.
