Ski Techniques


Bryan Mountain Nordic Ski Patrol was founded in 1974 with 12 members as the first registered Nordic component of the National Ski Patrol west of the Mississippi. BMNSP has since grown to over 50 members. All BMNSP patrollers are trained in CPR , Outdoor Emergency Care(OEC), Nordic skiing, search and rescue, winter survival, ski mountaineering, and avalanche safety.

The goal of the patrol is to prevent trouble and accidents before they occur, as well as to help people who are injured, lost, or having troubles of any kind.
BMNSP offers courses in various aspects of skiing, winter recreation, and safety. Certified NSP instructors from BMNSP teach CPR and OEC courses. BMNSP also teaches courses in avalanche safety and mountain travel and rescue. BMNSP members spend a great deal of time annually training to maintain proficiency and teaching skills. They patrol at Devil's Thumb Ranch nordic ski area in Tabernash, Colorado. Members are available for search and rescue missions, as needed.

The Bryan Mountain Nordic Ski Patrol meets the first Thursday of each month. Interested persons are always welcome. Anyone interested in becoming a candidate should attend a meeting or check out the candidate page.
