Ski patrol hopes to build new clinic at Great Divide

Phil Drake

The Great Divide Ski Patrol is raising funds to build a new ski patrol clinic.

Patrol members said they have started working with the Great Divide Ski Area to build a clinic that meets the community’s growing needs and hope to have it in place by next ski season.

People can help show their support by donating at the Great Divide Ski Patrol Foundation website by visiting

The new clinic will have guest, patient, toboggan and ambulance access. It will offer more privacy for guests and their families, and a training room for team volunteer patrollers to help keep skills sharp.

The patrol hopes to raise $10,000. Those who donate will be eligible for a Blizzard ski setup, including bindings and mounting. The winner will be drawn from donations made through the website or via checks received through May 1. There is one entry for the first $100 donated, and an additional entry for each additional $50 donation. A $100 donation gets one entry, $150 gets two entries, $200 gets three entries, etc.
