Ober Gatlinburg Ski Patrol

Outdoor Emergency Transportation (OET) training is intended to adequately prepare skiers & snowboarders in the skills required to safely transport loaded and unloaded toboggans down all slopes, under any condition. Unique to the National Ski Patrol, the Transportation Program offers guidelines for area management to use to set the standard of training for its patrollers who operate toboggans.
