As the new season starts, catching everyone off guard, it’s important that we as a patrol carry ourselves professionally, and we look the part of the well trained organization that we are. With that being said, I’d like to take some time to remind everyone of the dress code policy for the National Ski Patrol here at Perfect North. Our policy states:

Since every patroller is under scrutiny by the skiing public and his or her appearance will reflect credit upon himself, the NSP and the PNS Ski Area.  Patrollers and candidates must be neat and clean. All area patrollers are to wear either the long red Patrol Jacket or Rescue Vest from either Mountain Uniforms or Patagonia.  If a vest is worn, the garment underneath must be either black or a red complimenting in color to the approved Patrol Vest. Pants must be black. Name tags are required for all vests and patrol coats, any approved earned badges or pins are allowed along with approved titles and statuses earned.  Inactive patrollers may not wear the official patrol parka or vest. Candidates are to wear the black vest with the white cross on the back.

Mountain Hosts are required to wear the standard mountain host uniform, consisting of:

  • Black pants 

  • Black/Red Jacket

  • Black vest provided by Area Management

With our new building being opened it’s important that we keep our attire as professional as our new building.  It’s also important to remember that we are representing Perfect North Slopes as well as the National Ski Patrol.  In the next few months we will begin to enforce this policy to ensure that our appearance is at the level our new building and Perfect North deserves from us as an organization. If you have an questions about this policy, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your crew chief or any of your board members as we are here for you, and to answer any and all questions you might have.
