The World Ski Patroller Survey is back for 2017. Your answers help educate the industry about the demands of being a ski patroller and increase the value placed on the services you provide. The anonymous results of this survey are sent to the supporting organizations, and are made available to others via our website. We have also made presentations to international audiences on this subject and are working to make a difference to ski patrollers’ lives.

Thanks to the great support of our sponsors we have some superb prizes (two are Freeskier Magazine 2017 editor’s picks) for lucky entrants in return for a few minutes of your time. Skis from Black Crows, a subscription to the Avalanche Review magazine published by the American Avalanche Association, undies from Lé Bent, and Goggles from Zeal Optics. To be in with a chance simply provide your email address at the end so they can contact you.

The survey can be accessed here ( Submit your answers by May 15, 2017 and have a chance to win a great prize.
