CSM Seeking Safety Skiers
By:  CSM   (2010/01/20)


The Canadian Ski Marathon Safety team has a need for a few more volunteer safety skiers. The basic requirements are:

  • can commit totally from Friday evening 6pm, Feb 12th to late Sunday evening, Feb 14th 2010
  • certified in first aid (St. John Standard with CPR or equivalent)
  • Intermediate cross-country skiing ability (able to easily ski a 15 km section of trail while carrying a day-pack)
  • have suitable ski gear and clothing (a first aid kit can be provided)
  • personable and willing to help a wide variety of skiers
  • a ham radio license is a bonus

All transportation from Ottawa, food, and accommodation in a double occupancy motel room are provided for a mere $40. The 2300 or so participants and volunteers would be extremely grateful for your help!

Contact Richard Hagemeyer (safety1@safety1.ca) to volunteer and for further information.
