Becoming a Member

The spirit and nature of those original skiers who started the Ski Patrol in 1958 has not changed much since this time. All are people with a great love for skiing with the only difference being the diversity of locations and backgrounds from which patrollers come. Most live in NSW and the ACT. Their normal occupations range from medical personnel, tradespeople, teachers, airline crews, farmers and self-employed business people.

Ski patrollers provide first aid and rescue to injured skiers. In addition to this they continually patrol the ski runs marking and fencing hazardous areas. Each one volunteers at least 15 days per season, which is a requirement to maintain membership, and many give more time in off-mountain support for the Patrol.
