This is the site for patrol R008 in the Western Region of the National Ski Patrol system. We have an extensive and proud heritage. And we have 50+ highly-trained patrollers with expertise in first aid, ski and snowboarding, avalanche search and rescue, and mountaineering skills. Some of us are instructors -- with the NSP in ski and toboggan techniques, while other instructors teach Outdoor Emergency Care.
In addition to our patrol duties, we have consistently sponsored the NSP's "National Day" where patrollers from all over the country gather to ski, share best practices, and enjoy competitive alpine games. We are also a long-time contributor to the annual Leadville 100 running race, where we have sponsored and operated the primary First Aid station on the course.
