Ski Patrol

Patrouille

Welcome to the Gatineau Zone.

The Canadian Ski Patrol is a dynamic not-for-profit organization that supports a membership of more than 5000 volunteers who service more than 200 ski areas across Canada. Sporting our new red, white and black uniforms, we are students, professionals, retirees and everything in between! We are enthusiastic men and women over the age of 18 who promote safe skiing and boarding, and provide top-quality first aid services to skiers and boarders in need. And it doesn't stop there - we also provide first aid services at community events 365 days a year. Visit the CSP Website: http://www.skipatrol.ca.
