- All guests must have read the Mountain Code of Conduct and abide by it.
- Before using the chairlift, make sure you are able to get on an off safely.
- Station Mont Tremblant recommends wearing a helmet for skiing and riding.
- Make sure the victim is visible (put skis to form an X on the slope above the victim).
- Never attempt to move the victim.
- Send someone to notify the patrol (at the nearest lift).
- Note the name of the track and the nearest trail crossing (each water hydrant for snow making is equipped with a different number. You can use this number to help us locate the victim on the mountain).
Our ski patrol team is composed of over 100 patrollers who are working to ensure safety on the slopes at all times. Tremblant patrollers are certified every year according to the standards of the Quebec Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport. They play a key role on the mountain that goes beyond enforcing the Mountain Code of Conduct.
Before your arrival on the slopes, our team follows a detailed mountain protection plan that consists of, among others, implementing signage and marking learning and reduced speed zones, ensuring that cushions are safely installed on obstacles and verifying grooming and snowmaking. In short, they ensure that you will be able to progress in a safe environment where you will feel confident.
As part of their duties, ski patrollers must ensure that skiers respect the Mountain Code of Conduct. They provide a constant presence on the hill and are first responders in case of an accident.
The provincial average of injured is 2.5 per thousand skiers.
At Tremblant, we are proud to be under the provincial average thanks to our prevention efforts. The average is 1.75 injuries per 1000 skiers.
PREVENTION AND SANCTIONS
In its quest to provide a safe environment for all mountain users, the ski patrol must sometimes intervene when they witness a violation of the Mountain Code of Conduct. The sanction is determined according to predetermined rules and takes into account responsiveness of the skier and number of recurrences on file.
You are required to follow instructions coming from a ski patroller. Any contravention of the Mountain Code of Conduct or reprehensible behaviour may cause a revocation of your privileges that your lift ticket or season pass confers.
Our Patrol team is seeking new volunteers!
Would you or a member of your entourage like to join a dynamic and motivated team? Are you at least an intermediate level skier?
