The BSC Ski Patrol is made up of 36 skiers who volunteer their time to make skiing safe for all other skiers on the hill. They are members of Buffalo Ski Club with a strong desire to help fellow skiers in time of need, by caring for injured skiers and making outdoor recreation safer and more fun for all. The patrollers have perfected first aid skills and techniques for outdoor emergency care and have achieved an advanced skill level in skiing ability.
A National Ski Patrol member is willing to work hard, devote many hours, and continually enhance their knowledge and skills in the area of outdoor emergency care. Along with learning and perfecting first aid and skiing skills, a patrol member also improves his/her skills in leadership, communication, and responsiveness.
