SKI PATROL

Since it was founded in 1938, the National Ski Patrol (NSP) has evolved for a handful of ski Patrollers into the world's largest winter rescue organization. For more than 50 years, NSP members have devoted a significant part of our lives to providing the skiing public with skier safety education and winter emergency care and rescue services.

Snow Trails Ski Patrol 2017-18 Members

As a result, the lives of many skiers have been saved, thousands of injured skiers have received prompt, skillful emergency care, and skiing / boarding has become a safer sport. Locally we are composed of over seventy volunteer Patrollers dedicated to providing ski / boarding safety at Snow Trails.

One of our responsibilities at Snow Trails is to prevent accident by marking obstacles and by safety education. Another one of our responsibilities is helping injured skiers, by providing prompt, skillful emergency care.

In 1997, with the industry movement towards snowboarding, Snow Trails Ski Patrol has added a snowboarding patrol to keep up our involvement with our guests. This is just one way for us to stay involved with the skiing / boarding public Patrollers are on duty to assist you. Your safety is their primary concern. All injuries must be reported.

Safety
All fencing, poles, signage and other marking devices are in place to inform you of potential hazards or obstacles. The markers will not protect you from injury, and it is your responsibility to stay away from marked areas. The use of helmets may reduce the risk of injury. 

Snowmaking and grooming activities are routinely in progress on slopes and trails. Use caution, ski in control and ski only on designated areas. Be aware of changing conditions; natural and man-made obstacles exist. Your responsibility code is also posted in the lodge and at the base of the slopes.

You are advised to familiarize yourself with the content of the code so as to become more aware of the elements of risk involved in the sport of skiing. Please observe all signs posted!

Carnival Sale

Our Snow Groomers will be out today, pushing and spreading to get ready for our 57th Annual Ski Carnival to take place this Saturday and Sunday - no matter what! We will reopen the Slopes only with normal hours beginning at 9AM Saturday. As a result, the new Tubing Bobsled event will unfortunately have to be cancelled. We will host all other Carnival events both days as planned, unless weather delays are necessary. On Sunday at 9AM we will open both the Slopes and Tubing Park and be happy to host you for our second day of Carnival.

Although you might see percentages of precipitation at nearly 100%, most turn-out to be intermittent r@#% during only a portion of the day, as a front moves through, so don’t let it ruin your Carnival fun! We know many of you have already made plans and reservations and you will not want to miss it!!

We will be getting back to Normal Hours on the Slopes and in the Tubing Park this coming week. We are happy to see the forecast showing cooler temps at night and plan to carry-on. This unseasonably warm weather is unfortunate, however we hope winter is not over yet! We will look for sustained snowmaking temps in the forecast to hopefully get back to snowmaking and add to our base of snow for an even better finish to the season.

Our plan is to keep the fun going as far into March as possible. Our typical season runs December thru mid-March. We will look forward to you joining us! If a days weather is in question for you, before heading-out, please check-back here to our daily updated Snow Report for the latest.

Surface Conditions: Wet snow
Notes: Snow base is holding-up against these warm temps and precipitation. Our crew will be out in our fleet of Pisten Bully Snow Cat Groomers pushing and spreading the snow for reopening.
