Welcome to the Ohio Region of the National Ski Patrol.
We welcome both members and guests to explore the information contained on this site.
There’s really no such thing as a typical ski patroller. Nevertheless, when you hear the words “ski patroller,” you probably think of someone performing a mountainside rescue of an injured skier or snow boarder. The truth is, it takes all kinds to make this team. Emergency care is an important part of the mission of the National Ski Patrol – the world’s largest winter rescue organization. But it’s just one way patroller’s help others. We educate; we communicate; and we participate! National Ski Patrol members are people with a strong desire to help others. People who want to learn – and use – emergency care skills, improve their skiing/boarding, and help make snow sports safer for all. The National Ski Patrol is a member-driven association. Our members support and participate in the snow sports and outdoor recreation community by providing emergency care, rescue, and education services. The Ohio Region of the National Ski Patrol is made up of 10 individual ski patrols in Ohio and Southeastern Indiana. This web site has been created to serve both the Ohio Region NSP membership and the public by providing information about the NSP and the patrols who make up the Ohio Region.
