Anyone interested in becoming a ski patroller at Sunlight Mountain Resort can meet and ski with the Sunlight Volunteer Ski Patrol from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. March 30 or March 31. Pick the day that works best. Meet at the first aid clinic next to the lodge in the morning. A liability release waiver must be signed before getting started. Lift tickets will be provided for participants who don’t have a Sunlight Mountain pass.

After meeting many of the ski patrollers in the morning, the qualifications, duties and responsibilities of the job will be discussed. There will be plenty of time to get out on the mountain with this group of volunteers. The day will include an evaluation of participants’ skiing skills. Intermediate or higher skiing ability is required. Bring a brown bag lunch or grab something at the lodge.
