Growing up as a child of JHMR Ski Patrol is a unique and incredible experience. Travis Rice, Cam Fitzpatrick and Forrest Jillson all were fortunate enough to have parents on Ski Patrol growing up, helping to carve their own paths to becoming world-class athletes through inspiration, observation, and knowledge.

Midway down his second line, he dislodged a large pillow that broke into pieces and cascaded straight down his line.
