Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol
The training available through the Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol and the National Ski Patrol will prepare you to respond to emergencies, ski related accidents and backcountry rescues with an emphasis on patient care and personal survival in a winter environment.
To become a Nordic Ski Patroller, skiing ability is secondary to an interest and willingness to learn the necessary first aid, safety, rescue and winter survival skills. Training is provided by the National Ski Patrol at a nominal cost and it's a great education!

We meet in Anchorage on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month,

Anyone who wants to learn to ski safely and help others do the same is welcome.
The Anchorage Nordic Ski Patrol serves Nordic skiers, outdoor winter recreationists and the public by providing a high quality outdoor safety education program, emergency care, and search and rescue services through its trained volunteer membership.
