There is a core group of volunteers, but we could always do with more help – new patrollers would be very welcome! Appropriate skills for becoming a patroller include good skiing skills, basic first aid skills and the ability to take initiative and work as part of a team. Trainee patrollers require as a minimum a level 2 workplace first aid certificate. Patrollers undergo annual recertification in skills such as CPR, control of bleeding, use of oxygen, entonox and penthrane, airway management etc.
If you are interested in joining Mount Mawson Ski Patrol and consider that you have appropriate skills, please use our contact form: mtmawson.info/ski-patrol-contact
More information about patrolling can be found at the Australian Ski Patrol Association’s website: www.skipatrol.org.au
Skiing is a fun pastime, but like many things in life carries risks. Don’t turn a fun day into a disaster, ski responsibly and within your limits and look out for others. Skiers are encouraged to study the Alpine Responsibility Code – available at: www.skipatrol.org.au/index.php/alpine-responsibility-code
