Ski Patrol

Mohawk Mountain Ski Patrol is an organization of volunteers who are trained in Outdoor Emergency Care and are on the mountain to help skiers and snowboarders.  They are members of the National Ski Patrol.   These dedicated volunteers serve Mohawk Mountain along with the professional ski patrollers.

 

Ski Patrollers are out on the hill every day the mountain is open.  You can find the Ski Patrol building at the bottom of the Pine trail.  Just next to the parking lot all the way on the right when you are looking at the mountain.  If you, or someone you are with, needs help while on the mountain, tell one of the ski patrollers or a lift attendant where assistance is needed and someone will come to you.

 

Your Responsibility Code

We ask that everyone follows the responsibility code endorsed by the national ski areas association.

Skiing can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled or other skiers. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience.

  • Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  • People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  • You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  • Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  • Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  • Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.

KNOW THE CODE. IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
