The Australian Ski Patrol Association (ASPA) is an organisation that represents all Ski Patrols in Australia.
ASPA was formed to provide support for the Ski Patrol community by;
Promoting awareness of the need for high standards of safety in Australian Alpine Areas. It achieves this goal through SNOWSAFE.
Establishing and maintain uniform standards. It achieves this goal through;
- The operation of its Registered Training Organisation. This RTO is a light house organisation through its positive use of electronic leaning techniques and its quality face to face learning environment.
- The sharing of ideas on the international stage through Federation of International Ski Patrols.
- Supporting Patrols to invest in technology used in the rescue and treatment of injured visitors to Alpine Areas.
ASPA is managed and operated by dedicated volunteers. It appreciates the support of the Federal Government, Patagonia and the Volunteer Rescue Association.
