Important Applicant Information for the 2023-24 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.
