Date of Surgery: 5/16/2014
Update (2/2016): Kent returned to patrolling full time at Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort
I currently work at Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort. I became involved in the winter sports industry working a college internship at a Colorado ski resort.
I chose patrolling because I enjoyed the everyday skiing aspect. I have been lucky enough to work all over the west in vastly different mountain ranges, and have worked at all levels of ski patrolling.
Treatment Procedure and Recovery Plan
Through the Kees Brenninkmeyer Foundation’s help, I had an ACL reconstruction and meniscus work and began working exactly six months from my date of surgery. Since my surgery was so successful, I plan on continuing my ski patrol career.
"I now have a pain free ski season that I had not considered possible before thanks to the Kees Brenninkmeyer Foundation's help. Thanks so much!!"
