Ski Patrol is an original truTV Channel series that follows the men and women who work on the extreme ski slopes of Crystal Mountain (Washington) and Blue Mountain (Pennsylvania). The mountain regions have hundreds of acres of beautiful and pristine slopes and trails that can easily turn into a skiers worse nightmare if careless. Cameras follow experienced patrollers as they perform daring rescues, fight avalanches and keep unruly skiers and snowboarders in check. Although activities on the mountain slopes are generally event free, there's also a fair share of skiing injuries, lost skiers and lift malfunctions. Many people sustain severe injuries on the slopes and trails due to negligence and not heeding warnings. The show also includes profiles of patrollers and their view of life on the mountain. Many of the patrollers already have several years of medical and rescue experience gained from the military, fire-fighting, nursing or as an EMT.
