Keeping Mt Stirling’s visitors safe this winter
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.
