From the moment you join the CSP, you will be part of our team. Our certified training environment will give you the skills and confidence to deliver advanced first aid, improve your skiing and snowboarding technique, and rescue toboggan handling ability. In-classroom training starts in off-winter season and is followed by ski and snowboard evaluations once hills open. In Central Zone our training is available year-round. Patrollers receive various benefits, depending on where they patrol.

Once you are a part of our family, ski patrollers receive various benefits, including access to CSP pricing on our partners and various resort specific discounts depending on where they patrol.

We come from a variety of diverse backgrounds. We are teachers, students, doctors, carpenters, retirees… you name it. However, what unites us is a common interest in helping others and our passion for snow sports.

Anyone who is at least 16 years old and is a strong intermediate Nordic or Alpine skier/snowboarder is eligible to join us. (If you are 16 or 17 years old, we require a signed parental/guardian waiver and pre-approval by your desired resort.) As a member of CSP, you must be able to handle all of the many types of terrain and snow conditions you would encounter at your local Alpine or Nordic area. We also welcome fair-weathered enthusiasts to patrol at non-skiing events.

Does this sound like you? CSP members are people with a strong desire to help others, improve their on-snow abilities and make outside recreation safer for everyone.
