Wild Mountain Ski Patrolers were honored for saving the life of Blizzard Instructor, Charlie Mehr, on December 12, 2021.
It’s summertime, but some ski patrollers are being recognized for saving a man’s life last winter. December 12th was a perfect ski day at Wild Mountain. Charlie Mehr, 58, of Plymouth had just gotten done teaching lessons to a group of kids, when he decided to hit the slopes on his own. That’s when an afternoon of fun nearly turned fatal. “And the last thing I remember is going down and I heard someone say ‘do you feel OK?’ I said, ‘no.’ And then, I was gone,” Mehr said. He had gone into cardiac arrest while trying to get on the ski lift.
