Established in 1959, the Hyak Ski Patrol is a group of dedicated volunteers, brought together by our love of the outdoors, and the desire to help other people. If on the way, we have some fun, so much the better. Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, Mechanics, Fire Fighters, Contractors, Students, Nurses, Computer programmers, Salesmen, Homemakers and Retired Professionals. Members of the Hyak Ski Patrol are diverse and have been specifically trained for the demanding task of rescuing and caring for injured or ill patients in the outdoors, alpine and winter environments.
As a volunteer organization, we do not charge for our services. However, there are considerable expenses in running an organization such as ours. We are in need of anatomical training models as well as charts and other learning aids to facilitate our Outdoor Emergency Care course.
Activities abound for every taste and liking: walk to the end of the street to ski or snowboard, and tubing and rentals and restaurants only 2 miles away. After hours, Snoqualmie Casino is just down the road. And less than an hour away is the city of Seattle and all its excitement.
Please feel free to wander around our web site. See what it is we do. You will see photos of training, free skiing and socializing as well. Are you interested in helping others? Do you want an added dimension to your skiing or snow boarding experience? We are currently looking at adding members to both our Alpine and Nordic Patrols. Contact us today!
