The ski patroller's job is to provide supervision at ski resorts, and to administer first aid when necessary.

The ski patroller's role is that of lifeguard, not safety officer. Unlike many other first responders acting as first aiders, the ski patroller is trained to respond to multiple situations every day. Depending on where they're assigned, the frequency of their interventions can be high each shift. Every winter day, ski patrollers perform hundreds of interventions: their training is designed to make them mountain specialists in the winter and sporting conditions that Quebec has to offer.

The ski patrol Massif du Sud is a dynamic team of volunteers and professionals whose goal is to provide first aid and prevention services on alpine ski trails, as well as during Catski expeditions.

When a trail is closed, tell yourself there are reasons. The glades aren't open, because there's still not enough snow to cover the rocks, stumps, trees... in short, there's not enough snow.
