WILLISTON, VT (Nov. 28, 2011) – Julbo, a long-standing pioneer in mountain eyewear, continues to be on the forefront of freeride optical goggle performance and technology. Beginning Jan. 1, 2012, Julbo and its expanding line of wintersports goggles, will be an official sponsor of the National Ski Patrol (NSP).
Since 1938, the National Ski Patrol has been dedicated to serving the public and outdoor recreation industry by providing education and credentialing to emergency care and safety service providers. Specifically, ski patrol trainings involve intensive study and hands-on training for outdoor emergency scenarios.
The non-profit organization supports over 27,000 members, serving over 600 patrollers across ten U.S. divisions and one European division. Members are educated and trained in Outdoor Emergency Care and participate in continuing education to keep their skills sharp, as well as other important matters related to patrolling, such as avalanche awareness.
With millions of wintersports enthusiasts traveling far and wide to hit the slopes this season, Julbo is honored to sponsor an organization devoted to making slopes safer and welcoming to all levels of skiers and snowboarders, nationwide. In addition to a monetary sponsorship aiding the NSP, Julbo will provide members with discounts on its ski and snowboard goggles.
Julbo’s innovative goggles are extremely versatile with lens options such as the award-winning anti-fogging, photochromic Zebra lens and the polarized, photochromic Camel lens. Furthermore, Julbo goggles are designed and promoted with the help of freeskiing legend and Julbo athlete, Glen Plake.
In early 2012, NSP members and Julbo enthusiasts alike will be introduced to further updates and innovation in the Julbo goggle line.
