So, you’re looking at your window and see mounds of snow and have always wanted to try skiing… but you turn on the news and hear that a lift ticket to VAIL COSTS $159!?! You think to yourself, “Oh no, skiing is way too expensive and is certainly not the sport for me.”
We’re here to tell you that you thought wrong! Deciding not to ski because you think it is too expensive is like deciding not to eat out because it’s too expensive and that’s just silly. Just like you can choose to go to different tiers of restaurants and get an entrée for $10 or $100, ski resorts are exactly the same! You can ski at a wonderful local hill for $20 or jet off to an extravagant resort for $200—the choice is yours!
A different perspective: Titus Mountain Ski Patrol as told by Ron Jeror, Head of Titus Ski Patrol.
Being a member of the NATIONAL SKI PATROL is both rewarding and challenging. As patrollers we are called on to handle all medical situations that arise on the mountain. It is a responsibility that we train rigorously for and one that we take very seriously.
