The ski patrol is an organization that provides first aid and rescue services to skiers and participants of other snow sports. Every ski area/resort will have a ski patrol team.
The patrol's main duties are to:
Promote ski/snowboard safety
Enforce rules and policies of the resort
Help injured skiers/riders
Conduct trail checks
Clear mountain for closing
The ski patrol transports victims by toboggan, snow mobile, or even by helicopter in extreme situations.
patrol should be easily identifiable on the slope. You can find them out on the
trails where they are constantly patrolling or they can be found at one of the
ski patrol stations, usually located throughout a resort.
