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.
The Southern California Region is comprised of about 500 registered National Ski
Patrol members from eleven hills
in the Southern California area.
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.
