Bear Creek Ski Patrol and The National Ski Patrol Collaboration:

The Bear Creek Ski Patrol is a member of the National Ski Patrol(NSP) and adheres to the guidelines and procedural practiced outline by the NSP. The NSP sets the standard for outdoor emergency medical care. The NSP is a nonprofit organization that adheres to the creed of "Service and Safety." Quoting the National Ski Patrol website:

As the leading authority of on-mountain safety, the NSP is dedicated to serving the public and outdoor recreation industry by providing education and accreditation to emergency care and safety service providers. The organization is made up of more than 28,000 members serving over 650 patrols, including alpine, Nordic, and auxiliary patrollers.

The Bear Creek Ski Patrol and the NSP are constantly evolving with the emergence of new snow sports like snowboarding, tubing, and snow-skates. The new equipment and terrain that accompany these new sports, require the development of new safety/rescue techniques and emergency medical care methods. We continue to develop, practice and perform excellent medical care for our patient's in collaboration with the most up-to-date training from the National Ski Patrol.
