Welcome to the Willamette Pass Ski Patrol
Willamette Pass Ski Patrol is a volunteer organization that provides free medical assistance to any injured skier or snowboarder and promotes safe and enjoyable skiing and riding at Willamette Pass Ski Area. The ski area is located in the Cascade Mountains about 70 miles southeast of Eugene, Oregon.
We have about 100 members who work as patrollers on the ski runs and in our aid room or as mountain hosts. Patrollers have at least Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) certification, which is similar to an EMTb. Members of the patrol also transport patients down the slopes in toboggans, conduct avalanche assessment and mitigation work and are prepared for search and rescue missions.
We charge nothing for our services or supplies. The primary sources of income for the patrol are the annual Ski Swap held in Eugene at the end of each October, the Waldo 100k Ultramarathon held each August at Willamette Pass and donations from people who love the outdoors.
All ski patrollers at Willamette Pass Resort are members of the Willamette Pass Ski Patrol and the National Ski Patrol (NSP). NSP provides the annual training standards. Each year patrollers must commit many hours of their own time to achieve necessary training.
