A majority of the members reside throughout northern California and have established careers within their respective communities. They are diverse in age, experience and professions, and are all drawn together by the love of patrolling.

With approximately 30 patrollers, the Volunteer Patrol is supervised by the Volunteer Patrol Director and Assistant Volunteer Patrol Director, who report directly to the Pro Director of the Ski Park. In addition, there are Patrol Advisers in charge of the various disciplines within the Volunteer Patrol.
