Ski Patrol


The ski patrol union at Park City Mountain Resort has re-entered a contract with the resort that will cover the patrollers through the end of this ski season.



The union representing Park City Mountain Resort’s ski patrol held a second educational rally Thursday, in conjunction with a negotiating session with PCMR over a new contract.


Thursday’s rally was the second of the year by the union after an initial educational rally on January 16th in front of PCMR. Thursday’s rally was on Main Street.


The resort’s patrollers have been working without a contract in place since January 1st after negotiations with the resort broke down last December.

After allowing a contract extension expire on December 31st, the ski patrollers of Park City Mountain Resort have been working without a contract in place with PCMR. The patrol union held a small rally at the base of PCMR Saturday to raise awareness for their cause.

Park City Mountain Resort and the ski patrol union have reached an agreement to extend their current contract ahead of the opening day of the 2020-21 season.

With the opening day at Park City Mountain Resort fast approaching, the union representing the resort’s ski patrollers was eager to have an employment contract in place before the first guests of the 2020-21 season were loaded onto the chairlifts on November 20th.

It was a close vote.  Initial results show Park City ski patrollers will  join a union.  

Below is an excerpt from an email sent to Park City ski patrollers Monday evening:

"Today, you were given an opportunity to vote on whether or not the Park City Ski Patrol Team would be represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA). Preliminary results show that employees voted 97 to 94 for representation. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has a process to officially certify the results. As soon as the process is complete, we will let you know."
