A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up for a Mammoth Mountain, CA, ski patroller who suffered a severe leg injury while working last week.
Scott Wheeler will spend the next few weeks in hospital after suffering the injury while working hard to ensure the mountain was as safe as possible for guests following last week’s storm that dumped over five feet of snow on the area.

The fundraiser is to help Scott and his family with medical and living expenses while he is off work.
Scott Wheeler suffered a serious leg injury while working his Ski Patrol position at Mammoth Mountain during a recent major storm cycle.
He was flown to UC Davis for treatment, where he will be monitored for several weeks while he recovers.
Let’s help Scott with medical and living expenses as he gets back on his feet.
Scott is a long-time resident of Mammoth, and an avid mountain biker and skier. All donations will be greatly appreciated.
The fundraiser has so far raised $12,175 of its $10,000 target. To donate, go to GoFundMe.
