  • Fresh Tracks

    From the Desk of: Wild Bill Sinykin - “THANK YOU from your Past Division Director”. I want to thank all of you for your support and allowing me the opportunity to serve this fine Division as your Division Director.  I wish the new Leadership of the Division the best of luck and know that we are in good hands. I look forward to seeing all of you on the snow and making a few turns in the soft white stuff. I believe that change can be a good thing and it is usually inevitable. There are certainly changes afoot in the Ski Industry. Large companies are continuing to move toward dominating the ownership aspect of our Ski Areas. Vail Corp. now owns Park City and the Canyons along with its many other holdings. An article I just read talks about new lifts that will connect five Utah Areas on the Wasatch Front. I am anxious to see what all of this means to the NSP and patrolling in the Intermountain Division. Read More
