Join The First Aid Ski Patrol

Becoming a ski patroller can be a great experience. It requires a certain degree of commitment but the rewards are great: You can learn advanced first aid, meet fun people with similar interests, provide valuable community service, get exercise, improve your skiing, build confidence and many more. 

Your skills are important, but your attitude and other intangibles are even more important. As a volunteer organization we rely on people to help people. Many of our members have over 10 years of service in the patrol and we are always looking for more people who are committed, enthusiastic and willing to work in a team environment. There are some attributes we are seeking in a patrol candidate and during your first year of candidacy training you will be assessed on the following:

If you are interested to become a patroller please fill out the online application form and email it, or print and mail it to us.

Not sure if this is something you want to do? Send an email if you have any questions.

During the season, we will only consider candidates that have existing appropriate first aid certificates (CPR-C and one of OFA-3, OEC, EMR, Paramedics, etc). OEC training is available each fall prior to the start of the season to allow candidates to obtain OEC certification.

You can also visit us during the winter season on Grouse Mountain or on Cypress Cross Country. We can be easily seen in our red jackets around the slopes.

We wish you an injury free ski season and thank you for visiting our website.
