Canadian Ski Patrol is seeking volunteers to operate two patrols in the parkland region this season.
DUCK MOUNTAIN - The Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP) is looking for volunteers to re-establish not one, but two operating patrols in the parkland region this season; an Alpine patrol at the Duck Mountain Ski Area and a Nordic patrol in the Yorkton/Kamsack district.  

To help attract interest the CSP is holding a virtual membership open house Wednesday, Oct. 13 starting at 7:00 p.m. 

Register in advance by emailing For more information, visit the website at 

Every day, all year long, members of the Canadian Ski Patrol provide expert first-aid to the injured, they prevent injury through the promotion of safe skiing and riding, and they save lives. 

In return for their winter weekends, CSP equips volunteers to save lives with one of the finest first-aid courses in the world.  

Members must be 18 years of age or older, and ski or snowboard at an intermediate or better level. All other training will be provided by the Patrol. 

The CSP’s new patroller training program is going to start in Kamsack in October and be wrapped up in time for new members to join in on the slopes as soon as the ski area opens for the season.  

If you want to do something different this winter, feel good about helping people and make a lot of friends while you’re doing it, then join CSP  to learn more. 

Each year, close to 4,200 volunteer members of the CSP provide their services to skiers and snowboarders at areas all across Canada – free of charge. 

In Saskatchewan, about 100 members of the CSP provide services at five ski areas during the winter as well as a number of non-skiing events during the summer. 

CSP members have a love of skiing and a desire to help others. The skills they develop will be put to use providing services at ski areas and events and perhaps right in your communities.
