Young Adult Patrol Candidate Information
Thank you for your interest in the Spirit Mountain Young Adult Ski Patrol Program.
The Young Adult Patrol Program is a great way for youth to get involved in the ski community, volunteer their time, and gain experience by taking part in a professional ski patrol organization.
The Young Adult Patrol members assist our official patrol with maintaining safety at scenes, directing traffic, carrying equipment, repacking toboggan bags, and bringing needed equipment to and from scenes. They spend much of their time on the hills and around the chalet watching for safety concerns and providing guidance to skiers, boarders, and other guests of Spirit Mountain.
Our Young Adult Patrol members do not perform direct medical care on patients or handle toboggans with patients at any time. However, during their time in Junior Patrol, they will assist our regular patrol and be involved in many aspects of ski patrolling. This will give them valuable experience that will help them if they choose to go on to adult ski patrolling once they turn 18.
The Young Adult Patrol is currently accepting applications for the upcoming ski season. Responsible candidates between the ages of 15 and 18 years old are encouraged to apply. Candidates will be required to attend training sessions throughout their first year and will be assigned a scheduled shift. Skiing and/or snowboarding experience and your own personal equipment are required. Good customer service and communications skills are very helpful.
