Congratulations to Bob Freund who received a Yellow Merit Star as a National Outstanding Nominee at this year's PNWD Convention!

When the season gets going, come by the Patrol Room and spend some time with us.

The Santiam Pass Ski Patrol is made up of about 50 trained volunteers. Our goal is to provide quality assistance to those in need and promote ski safety in and around the Hoodoo Ski Area.

Hoodoo is located on the Santiam Pass which cuts through the Oregon Cascades between Salem and Bend. The area has ski trails, nordic trails, and a tubing park.

Members of the Santiam Pass Ski Patrol belong to the National Ski Patrol, which is a global organization with more than 22,000 volunteers and professionals. National Ski Patrollers work in different local ski areas trying to promote a safe and positive skiing atmosphere.

Patrollers are people with a strong desire to help others. Extensive training and testing is required of all patrollers before they can provide on the hill first aid.

Santiam Pass Ski Patrol has four categories of membership - Alpine Patroller, Nordic Patroller, Base Patroller and Pro-Section.  Advanced instruction is available to existing  patrollers, including the senior program, mentorship program, instructor development and more.  During the winter season, each patroller is required to be on the hill from 3 to 5 shifts a month.
