The El Dorado Nordic Ski Patrol is a volunteer organization working with the Eldorado National Forest. They patrol backcountry areas where they might be of assistance to winter travelers. Among the areas you may encounter them is the Crystal Basin, especially around Loon Lake. They also patrol along the Highway 50 corridor and Echo Lakes.

They serve snowshoers and cross country skiers as needed with emergency first aid, information, maps, trail marking and maintenance, and assistance to other emergency responders.
