Joining Our Team
Ski Patrol at Ski Apache is comprised of both paid professionals and volunteer patrollers. All of which are active members of the National Ski Patrol and we all report to the same supervisor.
Candidates While being a strong skier or snowboarder is a plus, a candidate may join our patrol with little ski or snowboarding skill and minimal first aid knowledge. The NSP provides excellent educational courses and instructors are available to train all candidates. Volunteer patrollers will be given a work ticket to ski anytime they sign on at the area to work. They can work any day of the week.
