The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas.

And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Three Rivers Alpine Ski Patrol is a highly trained, regionally and nationally recognized group of volunteers. The demands of the position are high and so are the rewards. Patrollers must commit to a minimum of 60 hours each winter season, successfully complete and pass extensive initial training in emergency care and patrol skills as well as annual refreshers, and maintain membership and current certifications with National Ski Patrol. The rewards are helping guests in need; gaining new skills through advanced level continuing education, hands-on experience and leadership opportunities; as well as earning alpine area privileges, Three Rivers volunteer privileges and discounts through National Ski Patrol.
The candidate class fills fast; however, highly motivated, enthusiastic skiers and boarders are encouraged to apply and participate in the annual "Tryout Day" March, 11, 10 AM, 2017.
