The National Ski Patrol (NSP) and the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) have re-signed the Joint Statement of Understanding (JSOU) between the two organizations.
The JSOU is valuable paper that outlines how NSP patrols function under ski area management,” said NSP Executive Director Tim White. “NSP provides the training to patrollers, but patrol operations are governed by ski area managers.”
The JSOU also outlines understandings regarding accident investigation, chairlift evacuation, and training requirements.
