You may have read the
benefits of patrolling and are thinking that it sounds great; however,
patrolling requires a commitment. You are expected to patrol a minimum
of 15 days each season. A patrol day starts at 7:30am and generally
finishes at 4:30; however, if someone is missing on the mountain
search activities could go late into the night. Throughout a patrol
day you need to be available at a moments notice to respond to injuries
and other patrol duties.
