Joy Jucker
Women's Program Supervisor - Joy Jucker
Ski patrolling has been a big part of my life for 43 years. I joined the Gatlinburg Ski Resort Volunteer Ski Patrol, as it was known then, in 1969 at the young age of 15. Why did I join? Because I lived in Gatlinburg, had a tremendous love for snow and at 5 foot 3 inches, I was informed that was too short to continue playing varsity women’s basketball. Skiing became my new sports hobby!

Currently, I am a paid patroller for the Cataloochee and Ober Gatlinburg Ski Patrols. I am also an OEC, and Toboggan instructor and Senior Examiner. As a person who always needs a goal, I have passed the Basic test on a snowboard and telemark skis as well.

Randi Lowery
Asst. Dixie Region Director - Randi Lowery
Randi is a medical transcriptionist by trade, having spent time as a paramedic in southern Michigan in the early days of EMS (not quite the horse and buggy era…).

This will be her fourth season as Dixie’s Assistant Region Director.

In 2010, along with two other women patrollers from Dixie, she was accepted to work as an on-hill volunteer ski patroller at the Vancouver Olympics at Whistler’s alpine venue for the downhill and slalom events, but turned it down in favor of the shorter time commitment at the Paralympics (same venue), which then earned an invitation to the World Cup downhill event at Lake Louise in 2011.

About three years ago, she joined the Buncombe County Rescue Squad, now has a SARTECH II level certification from NASAR (National Association for Search And Rescue), and is currently working toward instructor level. She has taken the WASAR and Advanced WASAR (Winter Alpine Search And Rescue) courses from NCDPS, and has her Mountain Travel and Rescue 1.

Meggan Robbins
Asst. Virginia Region Director - Meggan Monaghan Robbins
Meggan comes from a ski patrolling family. She first joined the ski patrol as a high school student in 1999, but some might say she has been involved since her mother, Judi Kay-Monaghan and father Mike Monaghan, joined ski patrol while living in Germany in the mid 1980s. Her younger brother, Corey , has also since joined the organization making for lots of family time on the slopes.

Since becoming involved with the ski patrol, Meggan has become an OEC instructor, a Senior patroller and served multiple years as the Instructor of Record for her local patrol's annual refresher. She also revamped Wintergreen's Youth Patrol program which allows youth ages 10-14 to become introduced to patrolling at an elementary level preparing them to join the OEC class at the age of 15.

Alumni Supervisor - Milton Triplett
In 1979 Milton Triplett joined the National Ski Patrol as an EMT and Red Cross first aid instructor. During the next 18 years he patrolled with the Southern Division Ober Gatlinburg alpine and Great Smoky Mountain Nordic patrols. He served as Southern Division Mountaineering and Nordic advisor (three separate years each). He helped update the 1984 Nordic Manual and 1995 Mountaineering Manual. In 2005 Milton went inactive as a patroller due to excessive business travel and became the Southern Division Alumni Advisor in 2013. He was a basic patroller who tried but never could ski well enough to qualify as a Senior. He frequently taught OEC classes, including the first Red Cross first aid class to Scott Marland, National Chair, NSP.

Milton is 80 years old and still regularly skis. But he says you wouldn’t want to ride in his toboggan. He hikes the Appalachian mountain trails photographing nature, posting his images on a personal web page and writing an occasional magazine or newspaper article.
