Stratton Ski & Safety Patrol

Stratton Ski and Safety Patrol serve as leaders in providing a safe on-mountain experience for guests and employees alike.  This team includes both paid and volunteer skiers/snowboarders who interact with guests on and off the hill providing emergency care and promoting safety.  Stratton’s team is NOT just about picking up the sleds and transporting them down the mountain; it’s much more than that.  Besides the team's medical care to our guest, other duties include safety-related responsibilities to open the area each morning, maintain a safe environment during operation and to close the area at the end of the day.  Follow a Ski Patroller through a day in their life in this video.

Mountain Safety and Slow Zones

Slow Zones are areas of heavy traffic that can become congested with skiers and riders. Our Safety Patrollers are on the mountain each day patrolling the 'Slow Zones', identifiable by the banners and signs at the run entrances and clearly marked on the trail maps. Look for our volunteer Safety Patrollers in orange jackets and "Play Safe, Play Smart and Enjoy the Mountain" insignia.
