Brighton Volunteer Ski Patrol's Annual Patrol Day


On Saturday, March 14th,  the Brighton Volunteer Ski Patrol is having our annual Patrol Day fund raiser at Brighton Resort.  

Each year, the BVSP selects a worthy non-profit organization to benefit from Patrol Day through donations and publicity.  

This season the excess Patrol Day proceeds will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation (http://www.prostatecancerfoundation.org).  One reason for our selection of the Prostate Cancer Foundation for this year is one of our patrollers was diagnosed with prostate cancer and is struggling to fight this form of cancer.

The remaining funds will be used for a variety of purposes, including medical and rescue equipment, medical and mountain skills training equipment, support of educational programs, as well as maintenance and upgrades of patrol facilities.

The Brighton Volunteer Ski Patrol is dedicated to promote a safer recreational environment through education and safety awareness on the slopes.  As first responders, we provide free emergency medical care and transportation to injured guests.  In addition, we provide educational services to the community such as CPR classes.

Each of our patrollers volunteers more than 190 hours a year, which equates to over 19,500 volunteer hours for the entire patrol.  

An Avalanche Dog Demonstration; "Ren Diner" offering Lunch at the base of the Crest lift, & Baked Goods for Sale are some of the fundraising activities we have planned for the day.

In the afternoon, there will be a Raffle and Auction on the Deck of the Alpine Rose.
