Crater Lake Ski Patrol requires attendance and participation in 2 mandatory training weekends the first weekend of November and December every year.
These mandatory training sessions are comprehensive and intense. We learn indoors and practice outdoors each of these weekends – covering essential rescue techniques and protocols, first aid, Park awareness, orientation and a whole lot more.
These 2 sessions are mandatory. Each day of training consists of several sessions happening simultaneously with experienced professional trainers and Park staff. Organizing and planning for this comprehensive training only happens at the beginning of each season. During the season we offer clinics, classes and experiences – but the bulk of what patrollers are expected to know is taught during the mandatory training weekends.
Save the date! Plan ahead!
