Ski Patrol Candidates in 2022


The Granite Peak Ski Patrol team is trained to respond to any incident at Granite Peak. If you or a member of your group needs assistance, Ski Patrol will come to you to provide the best on-hill care possible.

Our patrol is made up of about 130 volunteers. Last year they provided over 17,000 hours of committed service to Granite Peak.

In 2006, the Granite Peak Ski Patrol was recognized as The Best Large Alpine Patrol in the Central Division of National Ski Patrol, and they’ve continued that commitment to safety and excellence ever since. We could not be more grateful. 

Ski Patrol at Granite Peak - Here to Help

If You Need Help!

If you or a member of your group needs help, our Ski Patrol will come to you as quickly as possible! Here's how to get them there:

  • Determine your location. 
    • Trail Name
    • A landmark (such as a lift tower, terrain park feature, etc)
  • Have a member of your party go to the nearest staff member. 
    • Most likely a lift operator
  • Give the staff member as much detail as possible but the location is the most important part! 


If you’re interested in supporting the snow-sport community by joining our ranks, come into the lower patrol building at Granite Peak. After you are put on a candidate list, tryouts start in March. If you're selected, you’ll start training August through November of the following season by taking our Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) class, and covering first-aid and rescue techniques. Once the ski area opens, you start toboggan handling class.

Ski Patrol is a long and rewarding tradition on Granite Peak, and those who serve are proud and committed. 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 you’ll learn about during an information session.
