We operate a professional full-time Ski Patrol who look after piste safety, piste marking and assistance in the event of any unlikely accident. Our main ski patrol base is located in the Aonach Room (by the Ranger base entrance). Our Ski Patrol only operate within the marked boundary which can be seen on our piste map. If you are venturing outside of the boundary and an incident occurs and you or your companions are injured, you must call for mountain rescue assistance – Dial 999 or 112 and ask for ‘police’ then ‘mountain rescue’. You can find out more information exploring outside of the ski area here. Make sure you stick to the 10 FIS (International Ski and Snowboard Federation) rules for conduct when you are out enjoying the ski area.
