Lakewood, Colo. – On January 8, 2011, two new members accepted their election to the National Ski Patrol (NSP) board of directors. A new board chair was also elected. The new board members were elected by a vote of the NSP membership, while the new board chair was elected by fellow board members.

Burt Mitchell, a ski patroller at Pahquioque Ski Resort in Connecticut, was elected as the new board chair, replacing Bela Musits, who stepped down.

Norris Woody of the Sugar Mountain Ski Patrol in North Carolina, who previously served as the NSP Fundraising Committee chair, was elected to his first term on the board. Also elected to his first term was Wally Shank of Bryan Mountain Nordic Patrol, which patrols at Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, Colo. Two other members, Jim Decker, of Holiday Valley Ski Patrol in New York, and Larry Stone of Frisco, Colo., a patroller at Keystone, were reelected. Stone will chair the NSP Fundraising Committee while Decker will chair the Governance Committee.

NSP board members serve three-year terms.
