NSP Debuts New Recruitment Video

The National Ski Patrol builds visibility through their new recruitment video, which showcases the fun side of being a ski patroller as well as their responsibilities.

As part of the visibility campaign to encourage recruitment, monetary support, and recognition for the 75th anniversary of the National Ski Patrol (NSP) in 2013, the NSP has developed a video extolling the virtues of working as a ski patroller.

Professionally produced by Epic Mountain Productions, the video demonstrates an enviable life of camaraderie, beautiful scenery, fresh powder turns on untracked lines, and making a difference in the lives of those who play at or near ski areas around the country.

“Patrolling really isn’t for everyone,” says volunteer patroller Scott Marland in the video. “But for those of us who do it, there’s just nothing better or more rewarding”

“We really wanted to create a video that captured the fun, excitement, knowledge and bonding atmosphere that makes ski patrolling what it is,” said Candace Horgan, communications director for the NSP. “Ski patrollers are needed more than ever with the increasing popularity of snow sports, and this video is an excellent way to give potential recruits something to think about and strive for in an easily accessible, digestible format.” Horgan continued, “Epic Mountain Productions did a fantastic job of producing a top-notch video that incorporates many aspects of patrolling so people get a true understanding of a patroller’s responsibilities.”

Coming in at just under six minutes, the video combines a little NSP history with the attributes of today’s job and lifestyle. Top-level editing includes inspiring music, 3-D graphics and shots of NSP sponsor apparel and gear.

The National Ski Patrol serves over 28,000 members, serving on over 600 patrols, who have treated over 6 million people since 1970 at no cost to the injured.

Please visit www.nsp.org to make a tax-deductible contribution that will support the men and women of today’s ski patrols and their service to snow sports enthusiasts for years to come. To order the DVD, please call the National Ski Patrol marketing department at 303-988-1111.
