We are looking for all-mountain skiers/boarders/tele skiers who are interested in helping others, not afraid of hard work and looking for a life changing experience.
Our candidate class selection process runs during ski season with training the following season. The candidate class for the 2016-2017 season has been selected. Outdoor emergency training (OEC) for the class starts April and ends with Ski and Toboggan (S&T) evaluation in March.
No emergency care experience is required. If you have medical or emergency care experience you are welcomed as well. Each year we have medical professionals such as EMTs, paramedics, nurses, and doctors complete our training.
If you are interested in joining the next class please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a ski-along request. Based on your evaluation during the ski-along you may be invited to our annual Ski Off in late February (Selection of the next candidate class)
Other positions are available that work closely with ski patrol staff.

HOW TO…. “PUT YOURSELF IN OUR BOOTS”
The training covers a number of areas which include: Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC), mountain operations, lift evacuation, Ski skills and Toboggan Training (S&T). You don't need to have any prior Emergency Care experience.We have a motivated OEC training team that will help you learn everything you need to know. You do need a strong desire to help the skiing public when they are having a bad day.
5 STEPS TO BECOMING A PATROLLER…
Upon successful completion of the OEC and Toboggan evaluations, you become a member of the Liberty Mountain Ski Patrol! In subsequent years you will be expected to patrol one weeknight every other week and one Saturday/Sunday shift every third weekend. We do not offer weekend only shifts. Annual refresher training is required.
If you are interested in pursuing the candidate selection, would like to schedule a ski-along, or have additional questions please contact us via email at email@example.com.
The Liberty Ski Patrol is affiliated with the National Ski Patrol System (NSPS) which is comprised of over 27,000 members and serves over 600 ski areas within the United States and around the world. The Liberty Ski Patrol is a volunteer, non-profit organization with approximately 120 members serving the skiing public. Our primary objectives are to promote safe skiing and to give emergency care to injured skiers.
What to expect during the ski-along: When Ski Liberty opens for the season you will be contacted and invited for a ski-along with a patroller at Ski Liberty. The ski-along begins your evaluation process. This informal part of the process allows us the opportunity to evaluate you and your basic skiing or boarding skills. You will be asked to exhibit your skiing abilities, perform a snowplow, and side slip on one or more of the advanced slopes. Participants that successfully complete the ski-along will be invited to attend a more formal ski-off and interview in the February time frame. Those who score highest on the two part evaluation will be invited to join the candidate class. The size of the candidate class is based on the number openings expected in the patrol. The number varies but is usually about 10.
