This site provides factual and anecdotal information relating to the use of snowboards for ski patrol activities, but it is not associated with the National Ski Patrol System, Inc. It also provides safety information for anyone interested in fostering the sport of snowboarding both in the U.S. and throughout the world. This site is maintained on a voluntary basis by David Schutz. The views expressed herein are solely my own unless otherwise indicated.
I actively solicit participation from members of the Professional Ski Patrol
Association (PSPA), the Canadian Ski Patrol System (CSPS), Australian Ski Patrol
System, and anyone else, including non-patrollers, who are interested in the
safety of snowboarders and skiers throughout the world.
