2022 Winter XGames Planning and Preparedness AAR

xgames-snowboarder-ski-skiingWe return this week to cover a topic we hit every year at this time. Ski Patroler and meteorologist Kyle Nelson joins us to talk about the behind-the-scenes event planning for the Winter XGames in Aspen, Colorado. Kyle is part of the medical response and planning team on the hill where both the athletes and spectators are watched for injuries or illness.

We cover integration between teams at all parts of the evacuation process. This includes local hospital teams, on-site medical support and trainers, and ski patrol EMTs and paramedics. Check out this episode along with Dr. Joe Holley, Becky DePodwin, and co-hosts Jamie Davis and Sam Bradley.
