Safety Patrol

The Holiday Valley Safety Patrol is one of the original safety patrols in the country. Beginning in 1982 with 3 members, their job was to prevent accidents by promoting safety on the slopes.  The familiar Yellow Jacketed Patrollers educate skiers and riders on Smart Style, Your Responsibility Code, Common Sense on the slopes and act as Ambassadors on the Hill.
