Since 1967 members of the Sunlight Ski Patrol have been serving the skiing public. Our mission is to provide quality emergency care and a safer recreational environment to the guest of Sunlight Mountain Resort.
Ski Patrolling is a challenging and rewarding endeavor that can truly make a difference. It combines a love for the outdoors with helping others and taking pride in a job well done! All members of the Sunlight Volunteer Ski Patrol are active members of the National Ski Patrol. Sunlight Ski Patrollers spend numerous hours training to meet and maintain the high standards set by NSP. All patrollers are trained Outdoor Emergency Care Technicians and skilled Ski and Toboggan handlers.
Additionally, patrollers complete ongoing training in Avalanche Safety and Awareness, Mountain Travel and Rescue techniques, and Overall Mountain Awareness. We would like to thank our sponsors, whose generosity allows us to purchase the equipment and supplies needed to complete this ongoing training.
Since 1967, volunteer patrollers from Sunlight Mountain Resort have dedicated their time and effort to ensure the safety and well-being of the skiing and snowboarding public. Today we have more than 50 patrollers who are active members of the National Ski Patrol.

INTERESTED IN BECOMING A MEMBER OF THE SUNLIGHT SKI PATROL?
We're always looking for individuals who love winter as much as we do! We are looking for individuals with strong, stable skills who love to ski/ride. You must be comfortable skiing on all of Sunlight's terrain and demonstrate a willingness to learn and work hard! NOT a skier/rider..... we have a core of non-sking members who provide quality emergency care in our First Aid Room.
Candidate training consists of two parts:
*Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) generally occuring in the Fall.
*Ski and Toboggan (S&T) Training which occurs during the regular ski season.
