Perisher Ski Patrol Inc.

Volunteering is a life style decision, and being a member of Perisher Ski Patrol Inc. (PSP), the largest volunteer ski patrol in Australia is both a privilege and fun. PSP operates under the ‘One Patrol’ umbrella by supporting Perisher’s Paid Patrol across the 1245 hectares of the Perisher Blue resort that includes Perisher, Smiggins Hole, Blue Cow and Guthega.  Perisher is the largest ski resort in Australia.  We also patrol the cross country trails and are available to help on out of resort rescues. In summer, PSP if requested, provides first aid services to events, such as L'tape cycling event and mountain triathlons.

Our ski patrolling activities may be summarised as to:

  1. Serve the skiing public without charge
  2. Promote safety and accident prevention – see Alpine Responsibility Code
  3. Assist in reducing risks
  4. Respond to incidents
  5. Adopt and apply uniform standards – see Australian Ski Patrol Association (ASPA)
  6. Enjoy and have a fun time.

PSP is a not-for-profit charity and is a member of the NSW Volunteer Rescue Association and many of our members have received the Governor General’s National Medal for outstanding service to the community.  We are also a member of ASPA our peak training body.

Testimonials

As a parent, I can tell you the panic that you feel when you can’t find your child.  Thank you PSP for reassuring us firstly, and more importantly finding and returning Sophie.   Great work.

Lost and Found

Thanks Perisher Ski Patrol. My family and I  can’t thank you enough.  Heart attack, treatment, evacuation – my family tell me they’ve never seen people and gear arrive so fast.  Bless you all.

Recovered

I am extremely grateful for the medical help I received from the Perisher Ski Patrol. They made a very traumatic situation calmer. I have a huge amount of respect and gratitude for them. PSP does a wonderful job.

Calm Skier

I had a big accident at the bottom of Eyre at the end of the season, I caught an edge, went over the front and slammed straight into a tree. Patrollers were there really quickly. They were attentive and their calm attitude reassured me. The Perisher Ski Patrol acted efficiently and carefully in removing me from the difficult position with my significant injuries. Thank you.
