Welcome to the Lee Canyon Ski Patrol, a dedicated group of around 40 skilled skiers and snowboarders committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of outdoor enthusiasts. As an integral part of Lee Canyon, our patrol members are proud participants in the National Ski Patrol System, a vast network of over 30,000 patrollers.

Equipped with comprehensive training in outdoor emergency first aid, emergency transportation, and rescue procedures, our team seamlessly blends their expertise in skiing and snowboarding with top-notch patrolling skills. Our mission? To offer a secure and enjoyable experience for visitors at Lee Canyon on Mount Charleston.

At the heart of our operation lies the core responsibility of providing essential first aid and rescuing injured patrons. But our involvement extends beyond emergencies. You might spot our patrollers contributing to various aspects of the resort, whether it’s assisting with guest interactions, aiding in lift operations, or participating in skier safety initiatives.

Recognizable by our distinctive red jackets or vests adorned with a prominent white cross on the back, we’re the first to arrive on the mountain each morning and the last to depart in the afternoon—dedicated to our duty, regardless of the conditions. Join us in embracing the spirit of safety, service, and camaraderie that defines the Lee Canyon Ski Patrol.

Know The Code

Common Sense, it’s one of the most important things to keep in mind and practice when on the slopes. The National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) believes education, helmet use, respect and common sense are very important when cruising down the mountain. NSAA developed Your Responsibility Code to help skiers and boarders be aware that there are elements of risk in snowsports that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.

Seven Points to Your Responsibility Code

1.Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
2.People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
3.You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
4.Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
5.Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
6.Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
7.Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
