The S&T/OET Program provides active NSP members with alpine training for skiing, riding, telemark and toboggan handling skills.

Alpine Senior OET Patrollers interested in becoming candidates in the Alpine Senior S&T/OET program begin by attending an information meeting and bringing a completed Eastern Division Senior Candidate Application (download application) signed by their Patrol Director who verifies that the applicant has sufficient knowledge, skills and experience to participate in senior level training. The application is reviewed for acceptance by the regional program advisor (EMARI; Tracy Dowd).

Candidates then choose what training events they can attend which are listed on the EMARI calendar.

If you plan on attending any of the S&T/OET training events, you must call the responsible contact person AT LEAST ONE WEEK PRIOR to the event. If you have to cancel for an event you have already registered for, call the responsible contact person ASAP. Late applicants are expected to purchase own lift tickets. Throughout the season the Senior S?T/OET candidate progress is assessed and specific input regarding improvement is provided by S&T Trainer/Evaluators (T/E’s) so that the candidate can qualify to take the Senior S&T Final Evaluation at the end of the season.

The candidate then submits their application to the regional program advisor (EMARI: Tracy Dowd) for review/acceptance.

Patroller School

If a patroller desires to improve their alpine skills but doesn’t want to become a senior candidate, they should consider a Patroller School event. Patroller School provides skill specific training on senior level terrain with the same T/E’s used for the Senior S&T/OET program. Patroller School is open to all skill levels from Basic to Senior even Certified patrollers can use this individualized training to keep their skill level at its peak. Patroller School training is listed on the EMARI and Eastern Division Calendars.

  • Call the responsible T/E for each training event you wish to attend AT LEAST one week before of the event. This is essential for us to properly plan and reserve you a lift ticket for a nominal fee. Some events require you to purchase a discounted lift ticket.
  • Only pre-registered patrollers can attend training events. Last minute attendees, non-patrollers, friends and family members cannot participate in NSP training.
  • Candidates must bring toboggans, carriers, and tail rope to toboggan specific training events. If you don’t bring a toboggan, don’t expect to train with one!
