Are you Interested in becoming a Ski Patroller?

The Lee Canyon Ski Patrol is currently recruiting patrollers for the 2018-2019 season. Candidates will be offered training in the following areas: Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) through the National Ski Patrol, lift evacuation, toboggan handling, and ski/snowboard skills clinics.

Patrolling is not for everyone! It demands a high level of commitment and a great deal of time. As a NSP member, you provide life-saving medical care to the community. Patrolling also comes with great rewards; a dedicated patroller will learn new skills, gain access to pro-deals through numerous sponsors, and receive various resort privileges. 

The OEC course is classroom based with lecture, practical and hands on experience.

Requirements:

  • Be in good physical condition
  • Intermediate snow skills required for full patroller status
  • Over 14 years old
  • OEC course, current EMT or higher medical certification
  • CPR for the Healthcare Professional certification
  • Attendance and completion of candidate year classes and on hill training.

NSP BOARD APPROVES NEW MEMBERSHIP PATH FOR EMT, A-EMT, AND PARAMEDIC (05-17-18)

​What this means:

If you are a currently certified EMT, AEMT, or Paramedic through NREMT and or SNHD, you are allowed to present your current certification to the Lee Canyon Ski Patrol and challenge only the Practical skills to gain reciprocity. This new policy in the National Ski patrol will afford us an easier way to continue to grow within and with our medical community!

Currently we have not scheduled the practical skills exam. There will be one at the beginning of the OEC Course schedule. If the practical skills exam is failed you will be required to take the entire OEC course to gain OEC certification. Please check back regularly to schedule your challenge exam.
