Become National Ski Patroller

Joining the National Ski Patrol

More Information: Ski Patrol

We’re a different breed.

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.

 

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.

Are you up to the challenge?

Take your passion for snow sports to the next level by attending an applicant-screening day where you are invited to work with your local patrol. This is your opportunity to learn more about how the patrol operates and what is expected of its members, as well as a chance for the patrol to evaluate your individual talents and abilities. Simply contact the patrol director at the ski resort of your choice to find out when they will be holding their applicant-screening day and get the complete details. Although the needs of each patrol vary, we can help put you in touch with the patrol directors in your area.
