Volunteer Tow Base Monitor:  

This season has many challenges and one of them is keeping skiers safely distanced while waiting in line for the tow rope. We need one volunteer at the base of hills 1 and 2 to remind people to wait near the signs.  When the line gets long (beyond the signs) we need to help them figure out that distance.  Please consider signing up for a tow monitor shift when your family is out skiing.   

While keeping the line distanced, the monitor can position themselves with a clear view of the towpath to assist ski patrol in the event that a skier falls in the towpath and cannot easily and safely get out of the way of other skiers behind them.  The tow needs to be stopped (either by ski patrol or the monitor or another adult who sees the need first). The monitor will restart the rope at the ski patrols direction when the tow path has been safely cleared.  

When you arrive for your shift, please check in with ski patrol.  They will give you a yellow vest and any information for the day before making your way down the hill.  If at any time you have questions, please ask ski patrol. They are here to help!  The addition of these volunteers will greatly increase our efficiency at keeping the tows going and our efforts to keep people safe while having fun despite living in the midst of a pandemic.  

As a reminder, the Chalets will remain closed. Please change into your gear in your vehicle and plan to store all personal items there.   

Please stay home if you are sick or quarantined or in isolation. Stay physically distant from anyone outside your immediate family (including in the tow line). Wear a mask where physical distancing cannot be maintained. Avoid gatherings when possible. You can take the self health assessment and review the club's Covid-19 Precautions here.
