Ski Patrol Exchange


To enrich the professional, cultural, and linguistic lives of the ski patrol personnel of the communities of Aspen and its sister cities.

Aspen Bariloche Ski Patrol Exchange Program

The communities of Aspen and San Carlos de Bariloche have a rich tradition of being leading destination ski communities in their respective countries and both are world renowned.  It is only logical that both communities have a great deal to share and teach each other in providing services to their skiing guests and residents.  With this in mind, both communities employ one member of the other’s ski patrol for the entirety of their respective ski seasons.  This program began in 2012 and has exchanged “patrollers” each season since.  The administration of each ski area feels that in addition to being professionally beneficial to their respective organizations, the experience is also culturally enriching for the participants.
