Patrolling at Dagmar Resort offers volunteers a full season of winter fun on the slopes, skiing and snowboarding. Located just south of Uxbridge, Dagmar Resort is home to varied terrain for all skill sets and Durham Region’s largest terrain park. For further resort details, see www.skidagmar.com.

The Dagmar Patrol is comprised of individuals who love celebrating our Canadian winters on the hill. Our volunteers support the resort with their skills and services on weekday evenings and throughout the day and evening on weekends. Typical shifts are 4-8 hours, and our patrollers are generally scheduled for about five shifts per month.

A patroller at Dagmar requires good communication and decision-making skills, the ability to work closely as a member of a team, a positive attitude, a desire to learn, and the snow sliding ability to safely navigate the resort’s terrain. No previous first aid or medical training is required; all needed skills will be covered in our Advanced First Aid training.

Our season begins in the Fall with annual First Aid training and recertification followed by hill orientation and equipment preparation in late November. Depending on how cooperative Mother Nature decides to be, the resort’s fabulous snow-making team usually have us on the slopes by mid-December. We then begin our On Snow training and refresher components to ensure our team are ready to respond to any situation we encounter.

When you join Dagmar Patrol, you are becoming part of our family. Our team works closely with our new patrollers throughout the season to help them gain confidence and proficiency in accident scene management, First Aid treatment, and patient transportation. Our patrol and resort are very family focused. We welcome our patrollers and their families to join us at any time during the season on the hill.

Anyone interested in joining our team or obtaining more information can feel free to contact our Patrol Leader at vanessa.bright@skipatrol.ca or any member of the patrol to discuss their experience and expectations. Stay safe and we’ll see you on the slopes.
