|Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code below and share with others the responsibility for a great winter experience.|

IMPORTANT APPLICANT INFORMATION FOR 2015-2016 SEASON
The Anthony Lakes Ski Patrol (ALSP) accepts applications year-round. ALSP conducts a couple of ski-with-the-patrol days that will give you an excellent opportunity to spend a day with an experienced patroller and learn firsthand what the patrol does in its daily duties on any given weekend. These are conducted throughout the season PRIOR to your being enrolled in any formal training. Formal training begins with the Spring Outdoor Emergency Care course followed by On the Hill Ski and Toboggan instruction the following season. With very few exceptions, it is generally not possible to apply, be selected, be trained, and become a Patroller in the same season. A candidate will invest a full year in training and successfully pass all of the training disciplines before being selected and voted on to the patrol. The initial cost of training is approximately $260.00 along with some equipment that you will be responsible to purchase but once you have been voted onto the patrol as a member in good standing you will receive a family season pass.
A brief timeline outline of the process to join the Ski Patrol:
Current Ski Season ————————– Candidate applies and skis with the patrol
April through August ————————— Candidate attends and completes the OEC course
September/October ————————– Candidate attends the Annual Ski Patrol refreshers
Following Ski Season ———————— Candidate attends and completes On the Hill Training
March/April of following Ski Season —– Candidate is voted on the Patrol and becomes a Ski Patroller [This is about a 13 to 15 month process]
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on the mountain!
