Can you name the resort with the largest ski patrol in the USA?

Thread Starter 

And by biggest, I mean most patrollers enlisted.  This is a quiz/fun facts question.  Someone told me this the other day, and apparently it is true.

It is probably somewhere urban with a lot of part-timers.  And you wouldn't ask if the answer wasn't surprising.  So I'll guess Hunter.

Good guess, but not Hunter.

Full time or part time patrollers?

I'm gonna guess winterpark, only because they do tons of disabled skiing which requires a lot of specialized ski patrol.

I am going to guess Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Western PA.  Sometimes it seemed there were more patrollers on the hill than customers when conditions are marginal which is pretty much all the time in that neck of the woods.

Keep guessing guys.  

 

To make this a little more focused, I will say that mdf and rickg are getting close with their guesses.

Whistler/Blackcomb.  Is Canada a territory or a state?

It would be a province, and it wouldn't be in the USA.

Second guess Stowe.

Windham. Or Bristol?

post #28 of 48

If we are talking full and part-timers, then it's gotta be someplace that has nightskiing. Nightskiing resorts are open 50% more hours than the rest. Gotta be someplace near New York or NJ because those skiiers NEED more ski patrol.

 

I'm guessing Mountain Creek, NJ. It has nightskiing, is less than an hours drive from NYC, and is super crowded.

Mt Creek or Camelback?

Some great guesses, but not quite on the money.  Some of the above are closing in on the answer.
