The Tahoe Backcountry Ski Patrol provides information and assistance for backcountry travelers in the Tahoe National Forest and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, TBSP also provides community education, basic and advanced avalanche and mountain travel/rescue training for ski patrollers, and winter Search and Rescue services in Northern California. Join us on patrol!
Tahoe Backcountry Ski Patrol is always looking for dedicated and enthusiastic winter backcountry lovers to join the patrol. TBSP is in search of folks willing to learn a new set of skills or two, while spending their weekends serving skiers, snowboarders and snowshoers that venture out into the mountains north of Tahoe. We invite anyone interested in learning more about the backcountry ski patrol to schedule a ski-along this season. Keep an eye out for our trailhead signs and white crosses the next time you're out earning your turns!

TBSP operates under the USDA Forest Service within the Tahoe National Forest and the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.
