Thinking about joining the ski patrol?

When it comes to being a ski patroller, there is no mold. There are, however, some common traits that all patrollers share. National Ski Patrol members have a strong desire to help others, learn emergency care techniques, improve their skiing and snowboarding skills, and enhance the safety and enjoyment of snow sports for all. Sound like you? Read on to learn how you can join our elite team.

Life of a Patroller

First on. Last off.

National Ski Patrol members support their area management in preparing the mountain in the morning, rescuing and caring for injured guests throughout the day, and making sure everyone gets down safely when the mountain closes. Sure it's a long, action-packed day, but there's nothing more rewarding than putting in a hard day's work while having a good time and making lifelong friends in the process. Besides, it sure beats sitting in an office cubicle all day!

Learn new skills and put them to the test.

National Ski Patrol education programs offer you the chance to obtain world-class training. Learn about emergency care practices, search and rescue techniques, avalanche control, mountaineering, toboggan handling, and many other interesting and essential skills. The most rewarding part is taking what you learn and putting it to the test on the slopes.
