Breckenridge Ski Patrol Seeks Volunteers for Gondola Training
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — Sept. 14, 2012 —Breckenridge Ski Patrol is looking for 200 volunteers to participate in their annual gondola evacuation training on Saturday, October 6, 2012. The training exercise will begin at the base of the BreckConnect gondola at 9:00 a.m. and conclude around noon. The ski patrol will provide coffee and donuts in the morning with an open discussion opportunity and lunch at the One Ski Hill Grill following the training.
This exercise is a great way to educate the public on the ski patrol’s safety response techniques in the event a gondola evacuation is needed. All ski patrol members have previously acquired the necessary skills to safely conduct an evacuation. If interested in participating, please contact Duke Barlow, or (970) 453-5000 by Thursday, October 4, 2012.
