As the leading authority of on-mountain safety, the NSP is dedicated to serving the public and outdoor recreation industry by providing education and accreditation to emergency care and safety service providers. The organization is made up of more than 26,000 members serving over 600 patrols, including alpine, Nordic, and auxiliary patrollers. Our members work on behalf of local ski and snowboard areas to improve the overall experience for outdoor recreationalists.
There is one common thread that keeps all of us patrollers together, a vision to provide educational programs and services to those who provide safety, outdoor emergency care (OEC), and transportation services to others in their time of needs. And we do this with pride.
