Hi! My name is Robert and I’m a ski patroller. Can I help you?
Robert has been asking this question on local ski slopes for more than ten years. Robert is a ski patroller for the Canadian Ski Patrol making it possible for him to practice the sport he loves while helping others.
He has been able to pass on his passion for ski patrolling to his two daughters who have taken his place. During his first year as a ski patroller at Mont Fortin, the training session was provided by St. John Ambulance but today it’s the Canadian Ski Patrol that trains the members of the team. It provides full training to patrollers to help them keep the slopes safe and lend a hand when needed. Training is updated every year. It is important to know that a ski centre cannot operate without ski patrollers.
For the past two years, Robert has been patrolling the slopes of Mont Lac Vert. This new experience helped him discover a beautiful mountain and meet great people.
When the ski season ends, he volunteers for Premiers Secours Saguenay (Saguenay First Aid). With his spouse, he participates in different regional events as a first aid attendant. It’s a great way for him to give back to his community, a place that has grown over time and where it’s great to live.
If this speaks to you, remember there’s always room for new members.
