There’s really no such thing as a typical ski patroller. Nevertheless, when you hear the words “ski patroller” you probably think of someone performing a slope side rescue of an injured person. The truth is it takes all kinds of people from varied backgrounds to make a successful patrol. If you’re interested we are dedicated to getting you the information you need to join a fabulous and dedicated group of people who love to ride on the snow and help others.
Benefits of Joining the Snow Valley Ski Patrol
The benefits of joining the Snow Valley Ski Patrol are numerous and extend past traditional patrol duties and the regular ski season. We offer many social functions off the resort including a corn roast, golf tournament and mountain biking trips. Many long time friendships began shortly after registration. Notable benefits include:
· Membership in the CSPS a National Organization of over 5500 persons
· Advanced First Aid and CPR training
· A chance to meet new like minded individuals who enjoy outdoor activities
· The opportunity to learn to ski or ride better
· Ski pass and discounts at the resort
· Stylish uniform ski jacket
· Pro-Deals on selected gear from National Sponsors
· The chance to visit other patrols
· The chance to be on a winning team
· The great feeling you get from helping someone in need
Anyone who is at least 18 years old and is a competent Alpine skier or boarder is eligible to join the Canadian Ski Patrol. You should be able to handle all of the runs, types of terrain and snow conditions at Snow Valley. In general, you should be able to ski or ride as well or better than the average person at our resort.
The majority of the Snow Valley Ski Patrol is made up of volunteers who commit their time on weekends to ensure that we have proper coverage during operating hours. After your first season you will be asked to commit to about 15 full days per year maintaining your first aid qualifications and providing coverage at the hill.
