Warner Canyon Ski Patrol
History: The Warner Canyon Ski Patrol has been actively patrolling the slopes at Warner Canyon almost as long as the area has been open. The patrol started out as the ski safety and winter rescue arm of the non-profit Fremont Highlanders Ski Club. The patrol first became chartered by the National Ski Patrol system during the 1952-53 ski season. Since its very beginning it has consisted of volunteers interested in promoting winter sports safety. This tradition continues on today.
Mission and Support: There are currently about 20 members on our patrol. Promoting safety on the slopes and providing effective first aid and rescue transportation are the highest priorities at Warner Canyon.
The non-profit organization is supported entirely by fundraising efforts. Most of the support comes from the proceeds of the annual barbeque dinner at the winter Snow Fest. All donations are used for emergency equipment, including first aid supplies, backboards, oxygen tanks, AEDs, splints, radios, vests, sleds, and ropes.
