Scott's NSP career began in 1978, and he immediately
developed a lifelong passion for patrolling. After becoming a Senior
patroller in 1982, he began instructing Ski and Toboggan. He quickly advanced to
become a Senior trainer/evaluator in 1983, an instructor trainer on the
division staff in 1989, and a member of the Steering Committee in 1993.
He currently is a region lift evacuation program director.
In 1995, Scott became the division S&T snowboard
advisor. He formed a team of patrollers on snowboards and traveled
throughout the division to demonstrate that snowboards did indeed have a
place in patrolling. His advocacy and leadership built the foundation
for patrolling on alternative equipment.
At Bristol Mountain, he has served as hill chief, patrol
director, and pro patroller. Scott received his National Appointment
Number 7379 in 1991. He has been awarded four Yellow Merit Stars, a
Distinguished Service Award, and a Meritorious Service Award. He was
