SKI PATROL VOLUNTEER
Ryan has been skiing since he was two years old. A California native, his family would often make the trip to Lake Tahoe. Inspired early on in life by ski patrol’s response to his own on-mountain injury, he joined the Mt. Hood Ski Patrol while attending law school in Portland, Oregon. Driven by a sense of gratitude, he enjoys paying it forward with vigilant responsiveness to all on and off-mountain emergencies in the hopes of creating a positive moment in what very well could be a person’s worst day. This experience is shared with a diverse team of 200+ volunteers from all walks of life, bonded by their sense of duty and camaraderie. Now firmly rooted in Seattle, he plans to continue this calling with a patrol in Snoqualmie Pass while maintaining connections with his Mt. Hood family.
