Join Blackhawk Ski Patrol! Toboggan Training Starts in December

Blackhawk Ski Patrol

Blackhawk Ski Club has a long tradition of members and parents getting involved in many different ways. For some, it has meant becoming a Ski Patroller at our club.

If you have ever considered becoming a patroller, there are four spots left in our toboggan training class that are scheduled to start in December. You’ll learn to refine your ski/snowboard  skills and what it takes to safely transport a patient down the hill. It is one of the most fun courses on the journey to becoming a ski patroller.

The classes will be held on Monday evenings from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm and will last approximately ten weeks. If you have ever thought about patrolling, now is the perfect time to get involved.

Patroller benefits include:

  • Give back to the sport most of us are intensely passionate about

  • Learn and get certified in first aid and safety through Outdoor Emergency Care classes

  • Improve your skiing or snowboarding abilities 

  • Make friends, and share in the camaraderie of caring people that make up our patrol and club

  • Enjoy the many perks of being a member of Blackhawk Ski Patrol which includes a reduced family membership to Blackhawk Ski Club 

  • Enjoy membership benefits of The National Ski Patrol including continued education, discounts on outdoor gear, and discounts at some ski resorts

The time commitment for being a Blackhawk Ski Patroller is much less than required by other area Ski Patrols, making it a great option for those who want to be a Ski Patroller, but have less time available for this volunteer commitment.

If you are interested in becoming a patroller or would like more information, please email Rob Kudrle, Blackhawk Patrol Director, at
