Tyrol Basin Ski Patrol
The Tyrol Basin Ski Patrol is a non-profit, volunteer organization that serves the skiing and snowboarding public at Tyrol Basin Ski and Snowboard Area in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. We are affiliated with National Ski Patrol and are dedicated to helping those who share our love for outdoor, winter sliding sports.
We are trained and certified in Outdoor Emergency Care and Rescue. We are also certified in professional level CPR. We regularly refresh and improve our skills in emergency medical care, on–hill handling and transportation of patients, emergency scene management and chairlift evacuation. The goal of the Tyrol Basin Ski Patrol is to render first aid to skiers and snowboarders at Tyrol Basin and to ensure a safe environment for all visitors. We also aspire to foster a positive image of the area, promote skiing and snowboarding, and educate the public in safe skiing and snowboarding practices.

Ski Area Responsibility Code:
Skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed in many ways. At areas, you may see people using alpine skis, snowboards, telemark skis, cross country skis, and other specialized equipment, such as that used by the disabled. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below, and share with other skiers and riders the responsibility for a great skiing experience.
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
- You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
- Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
- Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
Know the code. It's your responsibility.
