As a ski enthusiast, I have gone skiing many times, and have even participated in ski races, but I have never seen a ski rescue team. Are they on standby at all times? Also, I would like to know how much a single rescue service costs.

At ski resorts, rescue teams are typically on standby to ensure a quick response in case of emergencies. Generally, there is a fee for rescue services, as ski resorts need to cover the rescue team’s salaries, training, and equipment costs.
The cost of a rescue service will depend on your specific situation, such as the manpower and resources required. It is advisable to inquire about the price of rescue services in advance before skiing, to avoid any unnecessary disputes later on.
