Battle Zone Ski Patrol is a non-profit organization consisting of volunteers who provide advanced first aid services at Table Mountain Regional Park by the Battleford’s and Mount Joy outside of Lloydminster.

Battle Zone Ski Patrol is part of The Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP) who is a national not-for-profit, charitable organization which was formed to promote safe skiing and to provide assistance to injured skiers. Like all volunteer organizations, our members are actively involved in the administration and fundraising to sustain our operations.

Battle Zone has recently started raising funds to purchase equipment for special events which would allow us to volunteer our advanced first aid services and promote safety to the public for non-skiing events in the Battleford’s and area. These non-skiing events would include marathons, fun runs, sports tournaments, and so on. In 2016, for the first time, Battle Zone Ski Patrol volunteered services to the 55+ Summer Games in the Battlefords.

To coordinate this event equipment had to be borrowed from Saskatchewan Ski Patrol Division incurring costs for transportation and shipping. Also, recently Battle Zone Ski Patrol provided first aid services at the 2018 Winter Games events which were held at Table Mountain Regional Park.

Recently Richardson Pioneer – Hamlin donated $5,000 to fund this project.

This donation will allow us to purchase the necessary equipment and medical supplies to get this project moving forward. Battle Zone Ski Patrol is extremely appreciative and would like to thank Kim Corfield, Director of Operations, Richardson Pioneer – Hamlin for making this substantial donation possible.

Battle Zone Ski Patrol is NOW RECRUITING for its 2018-2019 season come check out our booth at the upcoming Battlerford’s Wildlife Federation's Walking on the Wildside of Summer event June 23rd & June 24th, 2018
