Accidents happen. If you crash, the ski patrol will likely be your savior. But the patrol needs your help. Here's what you should have with you every time you ski or ride – just in case.

Carry identification. If you're injured and can't speak for yourself, the patrol will have to figure out who you are. Chris Erkkila, assistant ski patrol manager at Deer Valley resort in Utah, said: "We're trained to look for ID and medical necklaces and bracelets."

Sometimes patrollers have to be Sherlock Holmes to just find your name. They'll look for a season pass or for your driver's license. Sometimes they have to search your cell phone for information. "Often skiers don't know each other very well, but they can tell us 'the phone is in my friend's right pocket.'"

Carry a list of medications. "Seniors typically take more medications than others," he said. Based on your condition, it might be vital for the patrol to know what prescriptions you're taking. Same goes for allergies to medications.

"Be sure to carry this information every time you go skiing," Erkkila said. "Very basic things help us the most."
