Central Division Ski Patrol Festival – Save the Date

The Alpine Skill Development Workshop is now The Central Division Ski Patrol Festival

This unique opportunity to receive training exclusive to members of the National Ski Patrol will be held on four dates throughout the 2022-2023 ski season.

More information will be published in the upcoming weeks but the key information is as follows:



Division Supervisors and any patroller who would like to learn the skills.

While we would love to see everyone at all four weekends, the intention is that each patrol sends 1-3 people to one weekend, whichever is closest or has the best date. Naturally, anyone seeking certifications will need to attend the March sessions.
