All members of the Sunlight Ski Patrol are active members of the National Ski Patrol. Sunlight Ski Patrollers spend numerous hours training to meet and maintain the high standards set by NSP. All Patrollers are trained as Outdoor Emergency Care Technicians and skilled Toboggan handlers.
Additionally, patrollers complete ongoing training in avalanche safety and awareness, mountain travel and rescue techniques, and overall mountain awareness.
Outdoor Emergency Care is the NSP's award-winning training program for patrollers and others in the recreation community who deal with emergency situations. Over the years, OEC has evolved to address the needs of other outdoor-based emergency care providers, including river rafting and mountaineering guides, members of search and rescue groups, mountain biking patrollers, and parks and recreation employees.

Sunlight OET instructors teach the skills needed to safely manage a toboggan and transport patients on any of Sunlight Mountain's terrain. OET training generally begins in January of each year.
The Sunlight Volunteer Ski Patrol welcomes young adults (ages 15-17) interested in ski patrolling. The Young Adult Patroller Program (YAP) helps young adults develop and enriches their lives by teaching them emergency care and response in the outdoors environment, skiing and snowboarding, leadership, and ski patrolling. All YAPs receive the same training as adult patrollers.
