Excellence in Service

A Team You Can Trust

Five areas, a Nordic patrol, and more than 600 active patrollers and mountain hosts make up the Western Michigan Region of the National Ski Patrol. We provide safety and first aid for ski, snowboard, and tubing guests at the ski areas in our region. The motto “First On, Last Off” is a well-known saying among patrollers.

You Fall We Haul

As a ski patroller, you are first on the hill and last off, setting up and taking down fencing, marking obstacles, and performing other tasks required to safely open and close the mountain for guests. You may assist with first aid, patient transport, and scene management throughout your shift using skills obtained in an Outdoor Emergency Care class you are required to complete prior to your season’s start. Please contact us today if you are interested in joining this elite team of compassionate volunteers.
