Beaver Creek Ski Patrol tryouts coming in March

Daily staff report

BEAVER CREEK — Beaver Creek Ski Patrol is seeking expert skiers and telemark skiers to participate in the annual ski tests, being held March 5 and 13. The patrol team is comprised of experienced skiers who like to help people in an active outdoor work environment. The group is seeking new team members.

As a member of Beaver Creek Ski Patrol, individuals gain emergency outdoor care certification, personal development and leadership skills, training for toboggan handling, high angle rescues, avalanche mitigation and certification for explosives, community outreach and lift evacuations. On average, patrollers ski 120 days a year, interacting with resort guests and fellow employees.

“Beaver Creek Ski Patrol has a strong culture of support, complete with a team of highly skilled professionals that are focused on training first-year and seasoned patrollers on technical elements of the job,” Addy McCord, Beaver Creek’s ski patrol director, said. “Together, we share a passion for our sport and for helping people.”

What to Expect

Participants will begin the day with an orientation and introduction at patrol headquarters. The on-snow ski test will follow and consists of skiing a variety of runs in variable conditions while being evaluated by members of Beaver Creek’s patrol team. The test concludes with an interview by current patrol staff. Participants who meet the skiing requirements will be required to attend a shadow day with the ski patrol for further evaluation and to learn more about daily job requirements and training.
