WHO WE ARE
The Wounded Warrior Patrol was formed
based on the initial ties between the military and the
National Ski Patrol. Minnie Dole, founder of the National
Ski Patrol, organized a mountain warfare unit, which in turn
led to the predecessor of the elite 10th Mountain Division.
Hence the National Ski Patrol and United States Military
became permanently entwined.
In homage to those veterans of the
Greatest Generation, the Wounded Warrior Patrol was formed
based on the desire to pay it forward to our Wounded
Warriors of this generation, as well as to their family
members, by encouraging their participation in our winter
While many members are veterans and ski
patrollers, membership is open to anyone with a desire to
help these Wounded Warriors. Ability to ski is NOT a
requirement for membership.
The Wounded Warrior Patrol is a nonprofit
corporation organized under the IRS tax code
