ON the week­end of July 30/31 Mt Stir­ling Ski Pa­trol ran its an­nual ‘on snow’ train­ing.

This year there were 20 par­tic­i­pants in­volved in a num­ber of chal­leng­ing sce­nar­ios and ski skill based ac­tiv­i­ties.

Sun­day’s ex­er­cise in­volved a large group of pa­trollers us­ing their skills to res­cue an in­jured skier from a frozen Baldy Creek.

Mt Stir­ling is one of the few back­coun­try/cross coun­try ski re­sorts that of­fer a ski pa­trol ser­vice seven days a week from 8am-5pm.

Mt Stir­ling can have more than 200 school and uni­ver­sity stu­dents vis­it­ing the moun­tain on any given day mid­week and a large num­ber of week­end vis­i­tors look­ing for an au­then­tic snow ex­pe­ri­ence.

Mt Stir­ling’s ded­i­cated ski pa­trollers are on call to help vis­i­tors have a safe and en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence.
