Completion of the refresher workbook is a requirement!

This year completion of the refresher workbook is a requirement to attend a refresher.
This is a departure from the past and we have specifically been told by National that this is not an option.
If we are to avoid patrollers being turned away from refreshers we need to get the word out and have everyone understand that this is a requirement that will be enforced.

Calling all Eastern New York patrollers! The Double H Ranch Patrol is looking for both primary and “visiting” patrollers for our adaptive winter sports program in Lake Luzerne. The Double H program teaches skiing and snowboarding skills to kids with life threatening or chronic illnesses, autism, visual impairment and other disabilities. A corps of 150 volunteer instructors teach the students. The Ranch ski hill (constructed originally for the dude ranch that was converted to a summer camp 23 years ago) has 2 trails, each about 150 yards long, a 99 foot vertical drop and a nice double chair lift. 30 to 35 students participate each weekend day and the program operates during January, February and early March - about 26 days total. We have snowmaking and a PistenBully 100 groomer, so conditions are impeccable! A ski day starts at 10AM and ends at 3PM – patroller commitment is 9AM to 3:30PM and we operate with 3 patrollers with at least 1 being a primary member of our Patrol. It’s a pretty comfortable day and on many days a hot lunch is provided! We’re appealing to 2 different groups:
• Perhaps you are a seasoned patroller who, due to age or other commitments, can no longer meet the demands of a traditional ski area. We welcome transfers from other mountains to join as a part of our “primary” patrol and 10 days per season is all we ask (and that is negotiable). Consider doing your OEC refresher this fall and joining our Patrol!
• We survive by having a group of “visiting patrollers”. These are folks who patrol at other mountains and spend a day or 2 (or more) with us during the winter. We have folks from Gore, West, Willard, Jiminy Peak, Mt. Van Hoevenberg and Lapland Lake currently helping us. Think about joining us for a day – you’ll never forget the experience!
Our kids are remarkable and time spent at Double H is an emotional experience that is difficult to describe. You’ll leave a different person and, we guarantee, eagerly look forward to returning! I’ve included links below to give you more information and a sense of what happens at our hill. The youtube video is excellent!
