Ski Patrol
Ski Patrol is a volunteer organization that provides 4 season safety and rescue services across Canada. 

At Ski Ben Eoin, Ski Patrol are the first ones on the lift in the morning, and the last ones to ride it at night. Our team is responsible for things like flagging and fencing areas that may pose a safety risk to riders, ensuring that all users on the property are following the Alpine Responsibility Code, using the rescue tobbogan to transport riders down the hill when they've had a fall, and much, much more!
 
We're always looking for hard working, dedicated people who want to join a great team! Not only do you get to be part of what makes the ski hill operate smoothly, but there are some other great perks of becoming a ski patrol member too:

- Ski for FREE at participating hills in Canada
- Get pro deals on many popular brands
- Recieve advanced first aid and rescue training that is Federally and Provincially certified. 

If this sounds like something that you might be interested in, contact our Mountain Operations Manger (click below) to see about coming out to shadow with a current ski patrol member to see what it's all about. The best time to join a training session is September - November, but it doesn't hurt to be thinking about the future now!

Snow Bucks Fundraiser 

Weekly Winner (March 2nd): Bernadette MacLellan (#45) took home $252!
Snow Bucks is our main fundraiser for the 2021 ski season!
How does it work?

1. Fill out a ticket located on the side of each Snow Bucks box and the number on the ticket is your number for the remainder of the lottery. We have several boxes located around the ski hill for easy registration and weekly tonnie drop offs (including in the Customer Service Center)

2. Each Tuesday evening, a number is drawn from the pot! If an available number is picked, the winnings go back into the pot till next week. 

Not a skier or snowboarder? No problem! You can still get a Snow Bucks number, thanks to our friends at Meadows Pharmasave (we have a box conveniently located there)!

Thank you once again to all our supporters for helping with this fundraising effort!


Remember: if your number is drawn, but your payments are not up to date, you will not be eligible to claim the prize. The prize amount will, instead, be added to the next week’s prize.

Next Draw: March 9th
ESTIMATED JACKPOT: $250!!

Layout and Traffic Flow
Main Chalet
This season, things look a little different. Our Main Chalet entrance now functions as the entrance and exit for the Ticket Desk and Customer Service Center (which are located in the Snow Sport Depot). There is no entrance to the Chalet or Broken Buckle from this "Main Entrance" this year.

The Cafeteria is used for Food and Beverage only. If you simply need to warm up, we ask you to visit our new "Warming Center" (pictured below). If you've taken a bagged lunch, we ask that you please return to your personal locker space (aka vehicle) for lunch, as outside food is not permitted.  

The Broken Buckle will use their own entrance/exit on the deck (situated on the West side of the building, facing the back 9 of the golf course). There will not be inside access to the Broken Buckle Lounge, with the exception of staff delivering food orders from the kitchen. 

The Main Entrance for the Chalet/Washrooms is now the door next to the A frame, on the South side of the building (facing the hill, itself). The exit for the Chalet is the door next to the kitchen, which leads out to the runway between our Chalet building and the Warming Center. 

We ask that you please limit your time in the Chalet to under 30mins to allow for others to come in to have a bite to eat, as well. Due to limited capacity constraints, we have included more outdoor seating on the deck, and have incorporated a Take Out Window for the Cafeteria (located next to the stairs, outside the main exit of the Chalet). 
Warming Center (Rental Building):
Our Rental Building has been completely reconfigured this year to offer you a fantastic Warming Center! The main entrance for this building can be found on the back side of the building and will be clearly marked. The exit for the Warming Center is directly across from the entrance. 

Once inside, we ask that you please follow the directional arrows on the floor to access lockers, and enjoy the warming area. No food or beverage is permitted in the Warming Center (please visit the Chalet building for this), and masks are required indoors, at all times. 

The Rental Area will operate as it's own "pod" within the building. The Rental Entrance/Exit is found on the South side of the building and will be clearly marked. We plan to offer a pre-purchased "Day Ticket Window" in this area as the season progresses. Stay tuned to our website for updates!
