The Nickolay Dodov Foundation had a successful presence at Bear Valley Mountain for the Annual Safety Week.The Foundation had a booth with tee-shirts, stickers, books, brochures, hand outs and safety DVD to help educate people about snow sports safety and awareness. The Foundation Safety DVD “To Send It Safe Educate Yourself” futures safety tips from Professional Snowboarder John Jackson, Bear Valley Terrain Park Manager Mike Schimke and Bear Valley Ski Patrol Director Mattly Trent. The presenation of the safety video with the lecture by the Mountain Guide and Avalanche Educator Paul Henrickson made a great impact to the audience of kids and parents.
This was our first snow sports safety event. It was a extra special day because it was Nicks Birthday.
