The Canadian Ski Patrol at Tawatinaw Valley


An important part of ensuring safety and a great experience for our visitors.....


Canada Ski Patrol- Pembina Zone

We want to highlight the contributions of our Canada Ski Patrol- Pembina Zone:

  •   They are volunteers and they have yearly training and courses in Advanced First Aid, which is accredited by the Canadian Government.
  •  They are a registered Society which raises significant capital through casinos and that money is directly invested back into the Ski Hill for First Aid Supplies and safety equipment.
  • They currently have 18 members patrolling at Tawatinaw Valley.
  •  Each member will put in a minimum of 60 hours of volunteer time per season, as they refresh their training every year, and dedicate at least 6 days of shift work each.
  • They encourage interested volunteers to contact them about becoming members; new members are always welcome.
