Ski Patrol & First Aid
Whiteface takes Safety seriously. In addition to Ski Patrol you'll notice our Host Patrol, in orange jackets. If you are hurt or know of someone else who is, turn to these guys for help.
The main Medical Services Area (MSA) is located in the Base Lodge. Ski Patrol stations are located at the tops of Little Whiteface and the Summit Chair, at Bear Den Lodge during holiday periods, and at the Mountain Run Slalom Finish Building. These are important places to know. Accidents should be reported to any of the above locations or to any lift attendant.
It is your responsibility to "Know the Code." Daily risk-awareness sessions, where Ski Patrol discusses the day's conditions and hazards, are conducted at the Skier Safety booth at guest services at 8:45 a.m. in the Base Lodge.
Emergency notices are posted at the base of lifts. Announcements will also be made over the public-address system. Always arrange a meeting place and time with the members of your group in case someone becomes separated. Call 518-946-8111 or 811 from any mountain phone to reach Ski Patrol / Medical Services.
