As part of the health and safety duties of the Ski Patrol, prevention plays an increasingly important role. To be effective these actions need to relate to all users of the ski area and be adapted to their needs. The Rider Leader concept is based on the Ski Patrol’s mountain craft experience, particularly regarding group behaviour, and the need to identify a leader who has the right skills to take action and make the right decisions when necessary so that the mountains and skiing are synonymous with safety and pleasure.
Join the Serre Chevalier resort Ski Patrol, learn and reinforce your safety skills to minimise the dangers of Free Riding.
