WOW!
Can you believe it! The last weekend for "Summer Mountain Operations" has arrived.
This is the last call for volunteers to patrol dirt trails and cat tracks.
We don't have any volunteers for Saturday and only one voluteer for Sunday.
The mountain will be open from 1100 to 1700 on both days
and each day counts for credit if you sign up with Denise by Friday.
If your refreshers are done and you are available either day, please come up and assist

If you don’t enroll you will not get credit, regardless of if you attend/complete the course or not. Watch the Course Schedule on the site, and this webpage, to see the course offerings as the courses become registered over the summer and fall. Please pay attention to the ‘notes’ that the Instructors post related to details for their course. There are already courses registered for next fall. Kudos to those instructors who have planned ahead and started the process.

 

Bogus Basin Ski Patrol is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to providing year round emergency first aid services for guests at Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area.  We assess, treat, package, and transport to higher medical authority.

 

The Bogus Basin Ski Patrol is a mostly volunteer organization that primarily provides support for the Bogus Basin Mountain Resort non profit organization that is entrusted with the stewardship of the ski area by the U.S. Forest Service.  The support we provide is emergency first aid services. We respond, assess, treat, package, and transport to higher medical authority. Now that we have the technical accurate description out of the way, we can talk about what is 'under the hood'. Basically, we are a large family. After the shared adversity of enduring the 15 months that it takes to become a patroller, you really get to know your fellow candidates, the patrollers that train you, and the whole patrol family.

We're a different breed.

 

When it comes to being a ski patroller, there is no mold. There are, however, some common traits that all patrollers share. National Ski Patrol members have a strong desire to help others, learn emergency care techniques, improve their skiing and snowboarding skills, and enhance the safety and enjoyment of snow sports for all. Sound like you? Read on to learn how you can join our elite team.

 

First on. Last off.

 

Bogus Basin Ski Patrol members support their area management in preparing the mountain in the morning, rescuing and caring for injured guests throughout the day and making sure everyone gets down safely when the mountain closes. Sure it’s a long, action-packed day, but there’s nothing more rewarding than putting in a hard day’s work while having a good time and making lifelong friends in the process. Besides, it sure beats sitting in an office cubicle all day!

 

Learn new skills and put them to the test.

 

National Ski Patrol education programs offer you the chance to obtain world-class training. Learn about emergency care practices, search and rescue techniques, avalanche control, mountaineering, toboggan handling and many other interesting and essential skills. The most rewarding part is taking what you learn and putting it to the test on the slopes.

 

Are you up to the challenge?

 

Take your passion for snow sports to the next level by attending an applicant-screening day where you are invited to work with your local patrol. This is your opportunity to learn more about how the patrol operates and what is expected of its members, as well as a chance for the patrol to evaluate your individual talents and abilities. Simply follow the link below to our online application and our Director of Candidate Training will contact you.

 

So how do I join the Bogus Basin Ski Patrol?

We are always accepting applications for the upcoming patrol year. This year's class is full but we would like to ski with you this winter to start the candidate process for next season. A candidate will invest a full year in training and successfully pass all of the training disciplines before being selected and become a voting member of the patrol.

S.W.A.P

Join us on the hill, early in the season, for a day of familiarization as you Ski With A Patroller. We’ll pair you up with one of our patrollers and give you a first hand look into a day in the life of patrolling.

 

New Patroller Training Cycle

It takes commitment and training to become a Bogus Basin Ski Patroller.  While we do accept applications year round, there are only two entry points into our new patroller training program.

1)   Fall Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) which begins in early September (NSP # required to participate)

2)   S.W.A.P. which spans between Mountain Opening and January. NSP # is required to move on to Toboggan Training.

To become a Basic Patroller, only the OEC is required.  To become an Alpine Patroller (Toboggan Certified) you must complete all three sessions.   It is recommended to start with S.W.A.P. However, Fall OEC is an alternative early entry point.  You cannot enter directly into Winter Toboggan Training without either passing the S.W.A.P program or obtaining the recommendation of the Patrol Director or their designate.  You must obtain your NSP membership prior to Toboggan and OEC Training.

The Patrol General Membership votes on candidates who have completed either the OEC portions or all portions as needed.
