Who We Are

The Mt. Bachelor National Ski Patrol is a group of highly trained and dedicated volunteers. We provide first aid and emergency transport guests in need of assistance. Patrollers use alpine, Nordic, or telemark skis or snowboards to move about the terrain and respond to emergencies.

More than 50 years of service to the Mt. Bachelor Community

In 1958 a group of Mt. Bachelor skiers led by Jack Staton banded together to form a local chapter of the National Ski Patrol and join a movement that began 20 years earlier at Stowe, Vermont.  Today approximately 90 men and women carry on their work under the banner of the Mt. Bachelor National Ski Patrol. Their job – help visitors to Central Oregon’s largest and most popular ski resort have the safest possible visit by treating and transporting those suffering injury or illness.
