Pajarito Mountain Ski Patrol News:

A new class of patroller candidates are training multiple times a week, learning how to handle toboggans to safely transport patients and studying to obtain their outdoor emergency care certificate at the same time.

All candidates as well as instructors volunteer their time. This past weekend, seven new candidates passed their ski and toboggan test.

Once the candidates receive their medical certification, they will be full patrollers.
