You become a member of an elite management team when working for ski patrol, so you must be well prepared and trained to a very high standard. Our modules are carefully selected and although we work you hard the rewards are immense.
You’ll be first on the mountain preparing the slopes for the day, looking after injured guests and making sure everyone gets down the mountain safely when the mountain closes. You’ll learn about outdoor emergency patient care, avalanche control, air rescue, helicopter orientation, toboggan handling, mountaineering and many other essential and fascinating skills that will help you find work within the Ski Patrol Service.
You should be a high-level intermediate skier or snowboarder to take part on the ski patrol programme.
