Frequently Asked Questions - All FAQs

Yes, However we define "skier" as one of the following:

  • Snowboard Skier
  • Alpine Skier
  • Telemark Skier
Camaraderie! Seriously, this is one of the bigger benefits. We also enjoy helping the skiing public and getting opportunities to improve our own abilities. In terms of benefits offered by the area, we get a personal season pass (valid weekdays only) as well as a “comp” ticket for every day we patrol. There is also a family season pass option. As you go through training we can explain the restrictions and requirements that go along with our “Free ticket” benefits. Patrollers who fulfill their required commitments also enjoy discounts at many of the area facilities (cafeteria, sports shop, …).
The volunteer patrol patrols the mountain on weekends starting when the area opens (frequently the 3rd weekend of October) until the area closes (normally the 1st weekend in May). It is a long but very fun season!

If you're still interested after you've looked at these FAQs, please fill out our interest form and one of our directors will contact you shortly.

We ask patrollers to commit to 24 weekend days per season. We break the season into 4 roughly 8 week quarters. We ask for 6 weekend days per quarter with 2 of those days being on Sundays. Please talk to a director for more details on the patrol commitments.
Our Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) class runs from Early September through the first or second weekend in December. The classroom session runs Tuesday and Thursday evenings from roughly 6pm to 10pm from September through mid November. The hill (practical) sessions runs Saturday/Sunday from the weekend the area opens until the OEC practical test in early December.

Our Outdoor Emergency Transportation (OET) training requirement is 1 weekend day per weekend from early January until the OET test in late March/early April.

Dates for public ski tryouts have not been determined for the 2016-17 season.

Yes, However we define "skier" as one of the following:

  • Snowboard Skier
  • Alpine Skier
  • Telemark Skier
The cost for the tryouts is $5.00 and includes a lift ticket for the day.

We will also ask you to sign a liability release form.
We will take you skiing on all types of terrain. Expect to go on the hardest bumps we can find as well as getting in the crud. If the ridge is open, we'll go up there as well.

Our first and primary rule is safety. We do not want anyone to get hurt. If at any point during the tryout, you are uncomforatble with what we are asking you to do, please let us know. We generally know the easier ways out of pretty much anyplace on the mountain.

In our tryouts we are looking for good solid edge control, stable skiing and a skiing form that will exude confidence to the skiing public.

We allow tryouts on multiple types of "ski" equipment, see the FAQ on that subject.
