HUNTINGTON The men and women of the National Ski Patrol cut a broad swath through the history of snow sport. Ski Sentinels: The Story of the National Ski Patrol, a new film by Huntington, Vt., filmmaker Rick Moulton, will premiere on Vermont Public Television Monday, Dec. 3, at 8 p.m. The film will also air on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 10:30 a.m.; Sunday, Dec. 9, at 6 p.m.; and Saturday, Dec. 15, at 4 p.m. Alpine skiing began to be popular in America during the 1930s. With thousands on the slopes, accidents began to mount. In 1938, Charles Minot Dole gathered and inspired a group of like-minded volunteers in Stowe,Vt., to evacuate and care for the injured. Dole and his associates later were instrumental in persuading the U.S. Army to create the famed 10th Mountain Division. He and the NSP hand picked its soldiers. The largest mountain rescue organization in the world, the National Ski Patrol grew from this group of volunteers. Ski Sentinels tells the story of this can do organization in footage of its people, equipment and events.
