Joining the Patrol

Coffee Mill Ski Patrol is a member of the National Ski Patrol organization and is a volunteer and non-profit organization. There is a commitment of time, effort, and money to participate, particularly in the first year.

Each fall, an Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) training course is offered at Coffee Mill. Similar in content to an EMT course, however OEC training is shorter (about 50-60 hours). Upon finishing the course, the candidates are required to pass a final evaluation. Each ski/snowboard season Coffee Mill Ski Patrol offers hill training and transportation. Following completion of both hill training and the OEC course the candidates are qualified to provide emergency care and transport to the skiing public.
