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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
