Additional training is provided for equipment use and emergency situations unique to Spirit Mountain. Existing medical professionals wishing to join the patrol may be eligible for a modified training course and should contact the Patrol Director for more information. Our ski patrollers receive benefits through NSP; Spirit Mountain ski patrollers receive a Spirit Mountain winter season pass and are eligible for family pass discounts, discounts on food and beverage items, and additional incentives.  To learn more and to apply, visit the Spirit Mountain Patrol website.
