Join the APP Member / Pay Dues / Donate and Sponsor the APP

The APP Fiscal Year begins November 1st and continues until October 31st of the following year.  To take tests, participate in the Mid-Winter and Spring Clinics, or attend the many forums and events, you must be an APP Member and have paid your current season/annual dues, to attend.  Members who pay their dues at the Spring Clinic cover the member for the preceding season and NOT for the following 12 month period after the Spring Clinic. Dues paid and received during the summer and fall after the Spring Clinic are credited to the upcoming season.   Voluntary payment of dues for past seasons unpaid, is always appreciated.  If you are new to the APP and interested in testing, you must fill out this Application Form (requires Patrol Director sign-off) and bring with you to your 1st APP clinic.

So what are the benefits of joining the APP? There are many, and here are a few:  

  • Continuing your patrol education may be the only reason you join the APP. The nine testing areas are the cornerstone of a good patroller.  And, at each APP Mid-Winter or Spring Clinic, you can audit practicals, take tests, network with patrollers from all over the country and participate at any of the educational seminars.  
  • Speaking of educational seminars, the APP provides first class forums and are well respected by the industry.  Forums/seminars conducted in the past include Risk Management, Avalanche Control, Science and Demonstrations, Patrol Director and Women's Forums, Avalanche Rescue Dog Training and behind the scene tours of top ski resorts throughout the country.  
  • The speakers at the annual Spring Clinic are also well known and first class, and have included: Warren Miller, Peter Croft, Shane McConkey, Scott Schmidt and Royal Robbins, Doug Robinson, to name a few.  
  • Attendance at any of the Mid-Winter or Spring Clinics also allows you to take advantage of the skiing/boarding during the Clinic at the respective hills.  This means at an incredibly reduced price or sometimes even free, you can take advantage of unbelievable skiing/boarding at world renown ski resorts.   
  • Paid members will now enjoy Member Only benefits, including online versions of the newsletters, brochures and other material. Come back to the website often to find updates on sponsor discounts and industry deals.
