The Mt. Bachelor National Ski Patrol is a volunteer non-profit organization whose members have been serving the skiing and outdoor recreation public at Mt. Bachelor for 50 years, beginning in 1958. We provide year-round first aid and rescue services for both snow sports and for many other community events.
Nearly 15 years ago, the volunteers began providing comprehensive first aid and rescue support at all aid stations for the Annual MBSEF Pole, Pedal, Paddle Race. We also provide support for MBSEF Sunrise to Summit.
Providing effective first aid and transportation is the highest priority of the Mt. Bachelor National Ski Patrol. Each member must have, at a minimum, Outdoor Emergency Care certification and professional level CPR/AED certification, completing annual refresher courses in first aid instruction, CPR and other patrol procedures.
We are 100% supported by our own fundraising efforts. Money we receive from donations is used for:
On mountain personnel equipment, including first aid packs, jackets, shovels, avalanche probes and transceivers.
- Training Equipment, including first aid supplies, backboards, oxygen tanks and regulators, airway adjuncts, blood pressure, pulse and oxygen monitors, anatomical models, splints, sleds, and audio video equipment such as computers, projectors and appropriate software.
- Training Books, materials & supplies for new patrollers.
- Capital Expense Fund: training, meeting and storage facilities.
- Recruiting new patrollers each year.
- Recognition of outstanding service and dedication to safety.
