Granite Peak is committed to your safety. Ski Patrol is located in the wooded area uphill and to the right or west of the Comet lift.
If you or a member of your group needs assistance on the hill, Ski Patrol comes to you.
1. Have someone go to the nearest lift operator and report the incident.
2. Give the trail name and where the person is located (top, middle, bottom, on or off trail).
3. Number of people involved.
This information is radioed to the Ski Patrol who will respond to that location. Persons are transported to the Ski Patrol Building. If children are skiing by themselves, please have a plan in place for them to be able to contact you.

Granite Peak Ski Patrol
Today's patrol is made up of 130 volunteers. Last year they provided 17,000 hour of service to Granite Peak. In 2006, they received an award recognizing them as the best large alpine patrol in the Central Division of National Ski Patrol.
If interested in supporting the snow sport community through ski patrol, come into the lower patrol building at Granite Peak. We'll put your name and phone number on a candidate list. In March, we have try-outs for interested candidates. If you're selected, you start training the following season by taking the Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) class. This 80-hour class covers first aid and rescue techniques, running August through November. Once the ski area opens, you start toboggan-handling class.
Members are responsible for taking a weekly shift and putting in 100-hours a season. Other costs and responsibilities are connected with becoming a patroller, which is shared with you during an information session. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
