  • Identify and mark hazards appropriately, and manage the flow of skier traffic.
  • Display a high level of skiing/riding skill and prudence in setting an example for the skiing public.

  • Operate a loaded toboggan safely, on all terrain and in all snow and weather conditions.
  • Plan and implement trail work, conduct trail checks before opening and sweep trails post-closing.
  • Maintain good working order, full stock and appropriate placement of equipment such as lift evacuation devices, safety fences, closure and boundary ropes, low/high angle protection, extrication tools, toboggans, personal protective equipment and all medical supplies throughout the resort.
  • Complete incident reports for each patient, and conduct accident investigations documenting the conditions at the scene and any signage or safety precautions the injured party saw or should have seen.
