THE SWAMPY PARIS AWARD

 
swampy-paris-award
From 1939 through 1982, Henry “Swampy” Paris was the founding director of what has become the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol. He had a passion for the Cutler River Drainage, a passion for his fellow humans who enjoyed recreating there, a passion for watching over and attempting to ensure their safety, and a passion for helping them when those attempts failed.

In 2015, the members of the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol created a very special award to honor the memory of Swampy Paris and those who follow in his footsteps. The “Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol Swampy Paris Thank-You” is awarded to unique individuals who have provided exceptional dedication and service to the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol and to the recreating public.

Please join us in honoring these individuals:
