Ski Patrol

The patrollers of the Mont-Farlagne ski patrol are members of the Canadian Ski Patrol (www.csps.ca).

Each year, all patrollers must be certified within the national guidelines established by the CSP. The course includes 60 hours of first aid skills and scenarios. Also, each patroller has to follow a cardio-pulmonary resuscitation course including the use of medical oxygen and external automatic defribrillator.

On top of the first aid and CPR course, each member must be able to demonstrate good skiing or snowboarding skills, be able to bring down a loaded toboggan and follow local procedures for the scene approach.

More than 25 volunteers are on hand and ready to patrol the Mont-Farlagne ski hill.

If you want to join the patrol, email our Patrol leader, Alain Sirois, at alsirois@hotmail.ca .
