The Los Alamos Ski Patrol was formed when skiers were still swooshing down Sawyer’s Hill during the winter of 1947-1948. “Basically it was started by club members who saw a need to provide help to people who were injured on the slopes,” Bill Somers, director of the ski patrol, said.While many changes have occurred in the past 60 years, such as moving skiing operations to Pajarito Mountain, the purpose of the patrol has remained the same; the group is still dedicated to ensuring everyone stays safe.To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the patrol, now known as the Pajarito Mountain Ski Patrol, is hosting a two-day celebration.To kick off the festivities, an informal gathering will be held at 6 p.m. March 7 at Quarks, the bar located in Central Avenue Grill.Additionally, registration for more activities will be held from 8:30-11 a.m. March 8 at the Pajarito Mountain Ski Lodge. A DVD presentation of the history of the ski patrol will be held, along with a photo shoot for current and former ski patrollers at 1 p.m. A “happy half-hour” will be held 4:30 p.m. in the lodge and a Mexican dinner will be served at 5 p.m.The price for the dinner and registration is $20 per person.
