- If you are alone Call 911 and stay at the scene.
- The phone number for Ski Patrol is 911 at all areas.
Notes: The number for ski patrol at any mountain is 911, stay with injured athlete until another coach can relieve you. Radio to other coaches to take your group. If you are alone, have your group stay with you downhill and out of the way of the injured athlete. Call Chris or Lisa to inform parents.
For freeskiing, use the buddy system. No one skis alone. Coaches must have a radio and a cell phone when freeskiing with a group.
