Les Sommets group is associated with the Institut national de

secourisme du Québec (INSQ) for the training of its ski patrols.

This training is mandatory for patrolling les Sommets ski hills.

The Requirements

Of The Law

The Institut national de secourisme du Québec is a school approved by the Government of Quebec for the training of ski patrols in alpine skiing.

 

In Quebec, legislation requires a minimum initial training of 56 hours for ski patrols, as well as a minimum annual recertification of 16 hours. Without this training, we cannot practice this profession. Ski resorts must also ensure the continuous presence of certified patrollers on their slopes.
