There are many ways to be part of NSP.

Joining NSP and enrolling in one of our education programs almost always starts with an interest in becoming a patroller, and connecting with a local patrol. Most of our members are ski or bike patrollers, but there are other ways to join our community. Learn more about all of our membership options.
