Far West Division National Ski Patrol

Far West Division Newsletter

Tim Viall
Far West Division Newsletter Editor

I'm a 35 year member of the NSP, 10 years at Mount Spokane National Ski Patrol in the Pacific Northwest, and 25 years with the Dodge Ridge Patrol in the Far West Division. About 15 years ago I received my National Appointment - 9650, and have been active as an instructor and patrol leader over the past 25 years. Having recently moved to alumni status, I continue as the division newsletter editor and alumni adviser. I'm always looking for content for the newsletter, so please contact me with your stories and get published.

Newsletter Guidelines

Deadlines - Publication Dates:
January 25, February issue
August 25, September issue

FWD Patrollers and Alums: We welcome features, short items, digital photos and news from your patrols! Human interest features and photos wanted: Submit human interest stories, features and photos from your patrol duties - we'd love to hear from you and publish your FWD and NSP-related thoughts!

Patrol Leaders: Send along news of your patrol, fun "patrol-related items", seasonal activities and other features about your patrol and/or your ski area. As always, photos are welcomed and encouraged. Each patrol is also encouraged to do a 200 to 400 word "featured patrol story" about your patrol and your ski area (once each season)!

Program Chairs: Please share a short update on your program, a "how to get involved side-bar" and any special dates/events, as well as "Thanks" to those involved. Photos make for a "better read", too!
