Welcome to the European Division
The European Division is one of seven divisions of the National Ski Patrol System (NSPS). The majority of our patrol members and official presence is within Germany, but we have active patrol members located throughout Europe. Presently we have six active Patrols and we host training events in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
As a Division of the National Ski Patrol, we are dedicated to the core values and mission of the National Ski Patrol. We share the NSP creed of "Service and Safety" and we offer many of the same Programs available in many of the stateside divisions.
The European Division is a purely volunteer organization and much of our membership is comprised of Americans living overseas for professional reasons. While the National Ski Patrol is a non-profit organization based in the United States, we welcome members from all over the international community. In this way the European Division provides unique training opportunities to an international audience.
