SheJumps Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol
March 30 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm| $45
Wild Skills JUNIOR SKI PATROL!
Join us for Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol on Saturday, March 30! Young girls will learn mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women & men of the ski patrol community. This event is intended for intermediate to expert skiers/snowboarders ages 8 – 17 who identify as female.
According to Powder Magazine, women make up only about 20% of ski patrol staffs. Even fewer, about 14%, are patrol directors. In an effort to empower girls that this industry has a place for them, Brundage is proud to support Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol day hosted by SheJumps.
This SheJumps’ Wild Skills event is structured as full day camp experience, parents/legal guardians drop girls off, they are split into teams based on their skier ability and then rotate through different stations. Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that are utilized by ski patrollers to keep the mountain safe. Girls will work alongside female patrollers and volunteers to learn more about the many facets of mountain safety and first aid.
We will provide 1 to 2 female mentors engaging all generations in the sharing of knowledge and understanding. Connecting experience, energy and love for our natural places with the technical and survival skills girls need to get out and adventure.

This event is for ages 8-17, girls as well as non-binary people who identify with the women’s community.
On the day of the event, you’ll check in at the registration tent on the plaza beginning at 9:00am, get your Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol packet and meet up with your team for the day. Teams will consist of 1 ski patroller, 3 SheJumps volunteers and 8 girls of similar ski ability.
At 10 am we start the day with a all teams morning meeting covering ski patrol basics, weather and our agenda for the day.
From there teams will break out and proceed to their various stations throughout the mountain. Stations cover topics including first aid, mountain safety, toboggan use, snowmobile safety, gear caches and weather. Along the way there is free skiing, surprises and games, of course!
Lunch is included in the day and all teams will eat together in a reserved area. After lunch, all teams will proceed to the Dog Demo where handlers will educate teams about avalanche dogs and demonstrate a rescue situation.
The afternoon will wrap up with the remainder of station visits and a informal awards ceremony starting at 3:30 pm.
Skier/Boarder Ability Level: This event is intended for intermediate to expert skiers & snowboarders. As part of the registration process, you will be asked a variety of questions about how confident the skier is on particular runs at Brundage to help us determine which team they are best suited for.
