Cameron Guy, a senior at Los Alamos High School, received the Outstanding Young Adult Patroller award for the Rocky Mountain Division of the National Ski Patrol during the Young Adult Patroller Jamboree March 1-2 at Winter Park, Colo. Guy was awarded a new pair of Ski Logic skis. He also will be considered for the National Young Adult Patroller Award.
Guy and three other young adult patrollers from Pajarito Mountain Ski Patrol, Nathan Phillips, Max Herrman and JoAnna O’Neill, participated in ski and toboggan clinics, outdoor emergency care scenarios and a bump clinic during the two-day event, also attended by young patrollers from Loveland, Sunlight, Hesperus and Winter Park. The PMSP Young patrollers were accompanied by their advisors, Dave Phillips, Steve and Julie Maze.
Guy has played on the LAHS soccer team and is a summer lifeguard at Canyon Vista Pool. A state and nationally certified emergency medical technician, he hopes to pursue either pre-med at the University of New Mexico or a paramedic license at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge, Colo. He also plans to enlist as a medic in the New Mexico National Guard.
According to PMSP Director Bill Somers, the all-volunteer patrol is always looking for new members. Candidates are required to pass the Outdoor Emergency Care course, which runs two nights a week – May to September. Young adult patrollers must be 15 to 18 years old and adult patrollers over 18.
