HOW CAN I BECOME A VOLUNTEER PATROLLER?
Awesome! We're stoked you're interested! To be a volunteer ski patroller you must first and foremost be a competent skiier, have a desire to help and be able to put in 14 days during the season. Second, you must have your Outdoor Emergency Care Technician (OEC) certificate, CPR for Professionals certification and Incident Command System (ICS 100) certification from FEMA.
The great news is we can provide all this training for you! The OEC class is approximately 40 hours of classroom and practical exercises and includes your ICS 100 certification. We hold the class once a year but sometimes twice a year if there's enough interest.
CPR for Professionals, toboggan and evacuation training happen with the rest of the patrol staff during the yearly refreshers over the course of a weekend prior to the season open!
