When the Canadian Ski Patrol first began, the uniform was Rainier red. In the 1980s, the official colours became yellow and blue. Then, in 2012, the Canadian Ski Patrol’s national board of directors initiated a brand review. By August 2013, they had shortened the name from Canadian Ski Patrol System to simply Canadian Ski Patrol, and launched a new image that included an updated logo.
The look of this new logo is similar to the historic yellow cross on a blue maple leaf, but the leaf has been updated, strengthened and incorporated in a new red and white colour scheme. It’s a revitalized look that reflects a boldness, professionalism and can-do attitude; integral elements of the Canadian Ski Patrol now and into the future.
You will still see the yellow and blue colours everywhere while the Canadian Ski Patrol goes through this transition. Our new red and white uniform will be rolled out by 2016.
