    What We Do:
As a functioning department of Massanutten Resort, we utilize our first aid and skiing skills to serve the ski area and public in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our primary function is to provide basic life support, first aid, rescue and on-the-slope transportation to injured resort guests along with skier/ rider education. Other duties include safety-related responsibilities such as opening the area each morning; maintain a safe skiing environment during operations and closing the area at the end of the night. In addition to wintertime activities, the patrol is active in the promotion of educational programs concerning outdoor sports. We are an integral part of numerous special events and outdoor activities such as mountain bike races. The Massanutten Patrol is a premier organization that is highly visible during ski area operations, trained to the highest standards, active in many aspects of the outdoor community and most importantly having a great time doing it!

    MSP History:
The Massanutten Patrol was formed in 1972, and consisted of a handful of adventurous members. Since then, the patrol has grown to a 100 plus member organization. Initial responsibilities included patrolling the original slopes of Massanutten with the best training available at the time. As the resort grew, so did the patrol. Our cutting edge training consists of the latest curriculum in outdoor emergency care. The focus has shifted to providing more education and the ever increasing efforts to elevate the safety of our sport. Through the 35 year plus history, the Massanutten Patrol, and its individual members, achieved countless recognition and achievement awards on local and national levels. As we continue to create the further history of this special organization, only the future will tell the heights this patrol will achieve.

Enjoy all that Massanutten has to offer in a safe and responsible manner.
