We are an alpine ski patrol. We are affiliated with the Eastern Pennsylvania Region of the Eastern Division of the National Ski Patrol. We patrol the trails of Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA. We have almost 100 Volunteer Members of our patrol
Montage Mountain Ski Patrol originated in the weeks before the newly built Montage Mountain Ski Area was about to open in December of 1984
The newly formed patrol was headed initially by Sandy Scull and assisted by Al Evans who later replaced Sandy as patrol director.
Besides these two National Ski Patrollers, there where five other NSP members which transferred to this newly formed patrol from other mountains. The remainder of the patrol was made up of 35 candidates who had just completed their Red Cross Advanced First aid class. They were trained to NSP Standards and upgraded to basic patrollers by early January 1985 when another group of candidates came on board. The season ended with a patrol of over 50 members.
We are a member-driven professional organization. Our members strive to be recognized as premier providers, emergency rescuers and educators in the ski and outdoor recreation community. To meet that goal, and promote the safe enjoyment of snow sport enthusiasts, Montage Mountain Ski Patrol supports its members through accredited education and training in leadership, outdoor emergency care, safety programs and transportation services. Our Core Values Include: Excellence, Service, Camaraderie, Leadership, Integrity, Responsiveness and Fun!
