Crystal Mountain will be hiring full-time ski patrollers for the 2016-17 winter season. Responsibilities include providing emergency medical care and evacuation, actively participating in our extensive avalanche control program, conducting search and rescues and managing skier safety concerns. Ski patrolling can be an excellent profession to build off your background knowledge of first aid, snow science, technical rope skills, skiing and mountaineering.
We are looking for mature, responsible people to fill some key spots on our patrol. Applicants must be strong alpine skiers, at least 21 years old and possess current EMT-B, OEC or WFR certification. EMT-B is preferred. Prior patrol experience and mountaineering or climbing skills are a plus. Avalanche Level 1 and 2 are also a plus.
Wages start at $12.50. Benefits include a season’s pass, employee housing, and continuing education opportunities and, after the first year, possible 4O1-K benefits. Our season generally begins in late November and ends in April.
NOTE: For those interested in the Volunteer Patrol, please note that their hiring process is separate from the paid staff.
