NSP Announces Revitalized Safety Team

The New Team Consists of Members Uniquely Qualified for Slope Safety

The National Ski Patrol (NSP) has announced a new, revitalized Safety Team. NSP would like to welcome the new members of the NSP Safety Team, Mike Husar, Brett Henyon, Shauna Bocksch, Patrick Cruver, and Sal Mascarenas, as well as returning members Mike Petrozzi, Lonny Whitcomb, and Ed Strapp. The new team consists of members that are uniquely qualified in the area of slope safety.

"We are excited to welcome the new members to the NSP Safety Team," said NSP Executive Director Tim White. "With their background and extensive experience, it is a great opportunity to take the Safety Team's messaging and impact to the next level."

In 2008, the National Ski Patrol resurrected its Safety Team. The team works to promote a variety of safety messages at ski resorts and position the NSP as the leading authority on skiing and snowboarding safety. The Safety Team considers a variety of initiatives to continue to promote safety on the slopes, including helmets, nutrition, hydration, avalanche awareness, and Your Responsibility Code.
