Ski Patrol

In Case of Injury

If someone is injured please remain calm. Cross skis or place a snowboard securely in the snow above the accident. This informs other guests to be cautious.

Inform ski patrol or have a lift operator radio ski patrol.

Patrol will ask for your location, the age and sex/gender of the injured party, nature of accident and injuries, and the resources available to you.

Tips From Ski Patrol

Drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids. Your body’s tendency to dehydrate is greater at higher altitudes.

Ultra-Violet rays are more severe at higher elevations. Protect your skin from the effects of the sun and keep in mind that the snow reflects the sun’s rays. Wear sunscreen rated at least 30 SPF or higher.

Wear eye protection such as sunglasses or goggles. These should filter both UVA and UVB rays and be rated at 90%. Eyes can sunburn just like your skin.

Packed snow can be abrasive. We highly recommend wearing garments that cover your hands, arms and legs completely.

Be prepared for quickly changing weather conditions. Dress in layers with your outer layer of clothing being of a water repellent fabric.

Wear or carry a ski hat with you. Sixty percent of all body heat is lost out of the top of your head.

On especially cold days, be aware of the potential for frost-bite. Drink warm fluids and take breaks often.
