Ski patrollers are the hard working women and men behind the scenes at Colorado’s renowned mountain resorts. They are the powder smashers and party crashers who are on the mountains before first light to ensure the safety of thousands of guests that visit slopes each year. 

Telling their stories through Colorado Ski Patrol are Eric Miller and John Cameron. The idea was formed as they sat in a patrol outpost high on the Continental Divide. They would create a home for the epic stories that are passed down through patrol lore on mountains across Colorado. They are passionate about making these stories accessible through creative interviews, print and digital media.

lies and legends from Colorado Ski Patrol.
