As our calendars, the trees and the weather are indicating that fall is upon us, we wanted to take the time to update you about what is happening with the Association of Professional Patrollers.

We know there are many questions about what this upcoming ski season will look like. Your Board of Directors will be discussing APP’s plan for this upcoming winter. In the meantime, we have begun an extensive review of our criteria to ensure that our testing materials are up to current industry standards.
As the winter gets closer we will continue to keep all of you informed on what this season brings for APP. Start your snow dances now!
