The Holiday Valley Ski Patrol
Holiday Valley ski patrollers have completed a thorough, demanding training program. We further refine our skills annually through ongoing training in skiing or snowboarding, toboggan handling, first aid, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automatic external defibrillation (AED), lift evacuation, and snowmobile operations.
Holiday Valley has a highly experienced patrol, with members averaging 18 years of ski patrol service. A large number of our members hold National Ski Patrol instructor certification qualifying them to train and evaluate patrollers. Every year, Holiday Valley hosts first aid, skiing & snowboarding, and toboggan-handling training events for patrollers from other resorts.
More than half of the patrol’s members have completed a National Ski Patrol supplementary training program to achieve the level of “Senior” patroller. Senior training involves complex patient care situations and extensive handling of rescue toboggans on expert mogul terrain. Read More...
