I'm on their e-mail list as I've expressed interest in being a patroller.

Experience Patrolling day — February 24, 2013
Sign up by Feb. 15 to receive a discounted lift ticket ($39.95)
The CSPS Calgary zone (alpine) includes the following four ski areas that are looking for passionate people to become part of our team:
- Canada Olympic Park
- Lake Louise
- Mt. Norquay
Our Experience Patrolling day is your chance to come out and find out exactly what we’re up to out on the slopes. You’ll meet CSPS patrollers, make some runs, and watch a demonstration of our first aid/rescue protocols. As well, certified CSPS On-Snow Examiners will be there to give you an informal assessment of your skiing/boarding abilities.
Come join us for the day at Nakiska ski resort, beginning at 8:45 am. Activities will include:
- Demonstration of an on-hill accident response;
- Overview of how to get involved;
- Choice of different afternoon activities such as: ski/snowboard evaluations, shadowing a patroller, backboard demonstrations, or just skiing/snowboarding;
- Interaction with current patrollers from all Calgary zone ski areas;
I have signed up already, and I'll probably do the snowboard evaluation in the afternoon. I'd love to get some critical feedback on technical riding, and see how the rest of them ride! Helmet cam will be on for sure...
