Canadian Ski Patrol to Attempt World Record of Snow Angels


The Canadian Ski Patrol will organize an effort to set a Guinness World Record for the most snow angels at one time in multiple locations. The attempt will coincide with Canadian Ski Patrol Day on February 4th.

The Canadian Ski Patrol was founded in 1941 by Dr Douglas Firth. The organization is made up of more than 5000 volunteer members at more than 230 ski areas across Canada. Members are amateur and volunteer snow patrollers that love Winter and further training, education and safety in Winter sports. They receive education and certification and many members become paid patrollers at ski resorts across Canada. The group also volunteers to provide first aid and medical support for a variety of year-round recreational, music and sporting events.

The celebration and the world record attempt honours and highlights the life-saving work of volunteer patrollers across Canada. “Canada’s ski patrollers are Canada’s guardians on the snow,” said Canadian Ski Patrol President and CEO Colin Saravanamuttoo. “Helping to break the record for most snow angels is a great way for the skiing and boarding community to celebrate the people who look over them on the snow.”

Another snow angel record for most snow angels made in one place is 8,962 angels made in Bismarck, ND. The current record for most snow angels made at one time in multiple locations is 15,851.
