SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol 2024

Fernie Alpine Resort is hosting a SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol event on March 28th,

Young girls will learn about mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women on Fernie ski patrol.  This event is structured as a full-day camp experience; parents/guardians drop the girls off, they are split into teams based on their skier ability and then rotate through different stations. Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that ski patrollers utilize to keep the mountain safe. Girls work alongside female patrollers and volunteers to learn more about the many facets of mountain safety and first aid.
