We are a volunteer backcountry ski and snowshoe patrol associated with the Eldorado National Forest.  Our members come from many different backgrounds and experiences.  However, we all share a love of the outdoors and of skiing and snowshoeing.  We work together to assist the public by marking and maintaining trails, patrolling backcountry areas and providing winter-safety educational programs to the public.  We train our members to become qualified patrollers, who are ready to help the public when the need arises.  We pride ourselves in being a professional organization serving the public with our skills, and sharing our love of the winter environment.

We welcome new members! If you have any questions about joining, contact us at
