Timber Ridge patrollers come from a variety of professional backgrounds, including sales, manufacturing, teaching as well as related healthcare fields.  Members of our patrol also serve as OEC, ski, snowboard and toboggan instructors, many holding PSIA or AASI certifications.  We are part of the Central Division and Western Michigan Region of the National Ski Patrol. Many of our members hold leadership positions and dedicate time to training programs held at these geographic levels.

While on duty at Timber Ridge, we patrol as agents of the resort and work under the direction of the Timber Ridge Ski Area management as well as NSP. You can readily identify us by our red and black jackets with the white cross on the back.

Part of the patrol’s responsibility is to promote safety so that all skiers, boarders, and tubers that come to Timber Ridge leave with nothing more than fond memories of a great day. The patrol assists Timber Ridge management by marking hazards, opening and closing trails, and sweeping the entire area each night to ensure all guests are safely off the hill. Patrollers assist with lift-line management and crowd control and help enforce the Skiers Responsibility Code through active communication with area guests.
