Be Priceless...Be a Patroller
Everyone has his or her reason for joining. It may be that you like to help people in need. It may be that you like to have a reason for being on the mountain. Maybe it’s that you want to become a better skier. Maybe you’re looking to meet new friends. Whatever your reason, we want it to be the right reason.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for alpine, snowboard, telemark and nordic enthusiasts from all walks of life who are interested in volunteering their time to help others. You need to be a “strong intermediate” skier or snowboarder at least 19 years of age.
Is this a Paid position?
Sorry. We are looking for volunteers only.
When are the shifts?
Typically the shifts are either weeknights or every weekend (Saturday or Sunday).
Do I need to know first aid before joining?
No, the standardized First Aid course set by the Canadian Ski Patrol System based in Ottawa is taught in the course. This course is the same for all CSPS patrollers across Canada.
If you hold an Emergency Responder (EMR) diploma then you may challenge the first aid exam. You will still be required to complete the onhill portion of the course. Please note that CSPS first aid is a little different as it has been adapted to working in a ski area and therefore most people with an EMR still choose to take the CSPS first aid course.
When can I join?
We provide a CSPS course in November, right here at our ski hill!
