What is the Canadian Ski Patrol's Winter Extreme Ski & Board Swap?
Please see our short video to find out:
The Canadian Ski Patrol raises funds to provide volunteer first aid and rescue services to the public. We do this through our annual dues, sponsorships, donations, local fundraising and regional ski shows and sales (swaps). A swap is an event to which vendors and public consign their equipment for sale. It is in turn sold to the public for a small commission.
The Canadian Ski Patrol's Winter Extreme Ski & Board Swaps were started over 30 years ago. These primarily raise funds, but also enable winter enthusiasts to upgrade their gear. Our gear is safety inspected and is an economical way for a family to get into this exciting and healthy sport. We're considered the Ski & Board experts. Members of the Canadian Ski Patrol manage many of the world's largest ski sales!

We are the Canadian Ski Patrol
Established in 1941, the Canadian Ski Patrol is a nationally registered charity and a not-for-profit society in British Columia. We're the largest active volunteer first aid provider to Canada's outdoor enthusiasts.
Our active members number over 4000 across Canada. We are re-certified annually to the highest standards. We provide first aid and rescue services to over 240 Alpine and Nordic venues in every Province across Canada. From sea to sea to sea! We only have 3 paid employees! In the Lower mainland you can find us at Mount Seymour, Cypress, Hemlock and Manning Park. In addition to our local on hill & trail duties we commonly provide volunteer first aid and rescue services to other charitable or athletic organisations, summer or winter. Here are just a few examples, there are MANY more:
- 5-Peaks Mountain Running Races
- The Trans Canada Trail, Relay 2000 and their local trail events.
- MS Bike Tours
- Athletic competitions including World Cup Races, Ironman, Pan-American Games, Canada Games, Western Canada Games, Provincial Games, Aboriginal Games, Northern Games, the 1988 Calgary and 2010 Vancovuer Winter Olympic Games.
We volunteer over 50000 hours annually in the Greater Vancouver area alone and invest over 15 million dollars nationally in time and dollars supporting the Canadian snow-sliding industry. Many members of the Canadian Ski Patrol use this volunteer experience as a stepping-stone into the professional winter sliding industry and even the medical profession.
Your support in these as well as other fundrasing activities thoughout the year help both the skiing, snowboarding and non-skiing non-snowboarding public.
