Patrolling in Europe

The National Ski Patrol member organizations provide Emergency Medical and Rescue services to mountains throughout the United States and to several international partner mountains. In Europe, there are no partner mountains; so while we have the luxury of training in the Swiss and Austrian Alps, we confine our patrol events to our local communities. In fact, the National Ski Patrol provides service throughout the year, and you're just as likely to find a National Ski Patroller at a mountain bike race or triathlon as you are to find them at a slalom or bunny hill.
