About Palliser Zone Ski Patrol
The Canadian Ski Patrol is Canada’s leader in certifying ski patrollers and advanced first aid personnel for our on-snow resort partners. Since the 1940s, this organization has continued to fill a critical need for first responders on the ski slopes. Today, the Canadian Ski Patrol delivers a cross-section of national programs which provide vital skills, certified education, and training in outdoor emergency care. Many lives are saved each year thanks to the competence of CSP patrollers.
Palliser Zone is one area of the Canadian Ski Patrol Mountain Division’s areas. It’s 30 volunteer members not only provide emergency care at Hidden Valley Ski Resort and nordic trails within Cypress Hill Provincial Park (Elkwater) but also at summer events such as the Conquer the Coulee Family Race; Conquer the Valley Race; Mad Hatters’ Futterwacken Trail Run – Elkwater; Battle Creek Showdown Mountain Bike Race – Elkwater
The Canadian Ski Patrol is a great social organization and the perfect excuse to enjoy skiing/snowboarding on a regular basis. Ski patrollers come from diverse backgrounds. They are teachers, students, doctors, carpenters, retiree’s… you name it. The common links are a love for skiing/snowboarding and a desire to make a difference in their community.
