‘Children of Patrol’: The Next Generation of Jackson Hole Ski Patrollers

What is it like to grow up with ski patrollers as parents?

According to the tight-knit ski patrol crew at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, it’s like growing up in Disneyland — only better. Ski patrolmen and women raise their kiddos to respect the powder, read the terrain, and look out for others.

It’s a unique crucible in which some of today’s legends were forged. Cam Fitzpatrick, Forrest Jillson, and Travis Rice all came up under the careful watch and instruction of their ski patrolling parents.

Take a look inside the hearts and minds of JHMR’s ski patrol family in “Children of Patrol.”
