We are a Nordic Ski Patrol, and are part of the National Ski Patrol. NSP is most often thought of in conjunction with Alpine Skiing, but there are a small number of patrols at Cross-Country ski areas. To become a patroller requires completing an Outdoor Emergency Care course that is similar to an EMT course, although there is an emphasis on outdoor and wilderness emergency care. We patrol a 2,700 acre county park in Onondaga County located in Central New York State just Southeast of Syracuse. We are there primarily in the during ski season, but also help out at the park year round at special events such as mountain bike races. If you are interested in joining the patrol please let us know. Feel free to stop by anything on the schedule, or ask about the patrol at Highland Forest. The site is open for anyone to join, so if you join you can be reminded of events and meetings.
