As a result, the lives of many skiers have been saved, thousands of injured skiers have received prompt, skillful emergency care, and skiing / boarding has become a safer sport. Locally we are composed of over seventy volunteer Patrollers dedicated to providing ski / boarding safety at Snow Trails.One of our responsibilities at Snow Trails is to prevent accident by marking obstacles and by safety education. Another one of our responsibilities is helping injured skiers, by providing prompt, skillful emergency care.In 1997, with the industry movement towards snowboarding, Snow Trails Ski Patrol has added a snowboarding patrol to keep up our involvement with our guests. This is just one way for us to stay involved with the skiing / boarding public Patrollers are on duty to assist you. Your safety is their primary concern. All injuries must be reported.SafetyAll fencing, poles, signage and other marking devices are in place to inform you of potential hazards or obstacles. The markers will not protect you from injury, and it is your responsibility to stay away from marked areas. The use of helmets may reduce the risk of injury. Snowmaking and grooming activities are routinely in progress on slopes and trails. Use caution, ski in control and ski only on designated areas. Be aware of changing conditions; natural and man-made obstacles exist. Your responsibility code is also posted in the lodge and at the base of the slopes.You are advised to familiarize yourself with the content of the code so as to become more aware of the elements of risk involved in the sport of skiing.

Bluewood Ski Patrol includes paid and volunteer patrollers who work side by side with one another. All are held to the same standard, wear the same uniform and must be capable of performing all aspects of patrol work. These requirements allow Bluewood Ski Patrol to provide great customer service and superior care.
Bluewood Ski Patrol is actively recruiting new members. Recruitment generally focuses on skiers because some terrain and search-and-rescue operations require the patroller to be able to efficiently drag rescue sleds and traverse difficult out-of-bounds areas.
Bluewood Ski Patrol members are required to work a minimum number of duty days each ski season to remain on the patrol. In exchange for their services, members receive skiing privileges and other benefits from Bluewood. Members also receive the benefit of being part of a dedicated team, the first chair lift ride in the morning and last run of the day.

Each morning, the ski patrol must ski each and every trail before the public is allowed to go up the lift. We look for fallen tree limbs, holes in the snow, possible problems with the ski lift and any other situation which may be hazardous. If we find something, then we either mark the hazard or radio back to base if the situation is more serious. We may even close a trail of we deem it unsafe.
