Patroller of the Week: "The Colonel"
...aka "El Tigre", aka "Jon". This week I'm featuring Jon, a retired Army soldier turned Ski Patroller. Jon was the rookie trainer. For the first part of my season at Ski Patrol, I'd report to "The Colonel". He's a crotchety old grouch of a man, but that's just the way of the Colonel! The patrollers actually made up a song about him called "El Tigre" and it's pretty funny. Anyway here he is, sporting the military-issue spectacles.
