The Alyeska Ski Patrol is comprised of full time, part time, and volunteer members. Paid positions cover the mountain seven days a week from the beginning until the end of the ski season during operating hours. National Ski Patrol Volunteers supplement our staff during weekends and holidays. When Alyeska’s visitor numbers swell, the Volunteer Patrol plays a crucial role in our ability to provide adequate Ski Patrol coverage for the entire mountain. All members of the Alyeska Ski Patrol are responsible for safety and medical care at the Alyeska Resort. When requested by the Alaska State Troopers, patrollers respond and assist with search and rescue efforts around the Girdwood Valley and the mountains of the Kenai Peninsula.
Girdwood Fire and Rescue Incorporated is a non-profit organization under contract to The Municipality of Anchorage to provide Fire, Rescue and EMS services to the Girdwood Fire Service District and the Turnagain Arm Community. Girdwood is a rural community in Alaska. Our coverage area consists of 172 square miles with a population of 2800 residents and also encompasses hundreds of square miles of irreplaceable, environmentally sensitive wilderness areas that are home to threatened, endangered, and sensitive species.
