  • There is a Board of Directors meeting scheduled for this Monday night March 25, 2013 at 6:30 pm at the office of Mike McDonald located at 7025 N. Chestnut Ave.  All members of the China Peak Ski Patrol are welcome to attend. 
  • Please see an updated China Peak Ski Patrol calendar at the bottom showing all important remaining dates for this season.
  • Please support your patrol by selling raffle tickets to win a weekend at the Elliott House Bed & Breakfast in Shaver Lake!  Drawing May 10th.
  • Thank for your continued strong showing of patrol days by the voluntary patrol. Your help has been strong both midweek and weekends.  Great job!
  • Our Awards Dinner and Season ending celebration is Friday May 10th, 2013.  More details to follow. 
  • Our OEC Continuing Education Training has been outstanding the past 5 Saturdays.  Thank you La Donna Crane for organizing and over seeing this valuable training.  Our OEC Instructor core leading theses sessions have been outstanding. 
  • OEC Training for this Saturday is finding an unresponsive/unconscious patient on scene.
  • Patrol Elections for 3 new Board of Director Members will be coming in May.  The call for Candidates will be sent out before April 1, 2013.
  • We are not sure when the Patrol Season will end.  We will get this date to you as soon I know.  For the closing weekend we will need a ton of help to close down the mountain and the Patrol Room. There are 125 tower pads alone that will need to be pulled and stored.  Its fun and your help will be appreciated.
  • In terms of your personnel equipment and locker your items will need to be removed by the end of the season.  If you are patrolling this summer you can maintain your locker.  No items can be stored within the locker room including skis on the ski rack.  Items remaining will be removed by China Peak.
  • Coming Saturday May 25, 2013 our patrol will be putting an Instructor Development Course at the new Sequoia North Brewery Board Room.  This course is open to any China Peak ski patroller who wants to become an NSP Instructor and is a prerequisite to becoming an instructor. More information will be sent soon.
