Well, it hasn't stuck around yet, but I'm putting my money on getting some snow this winter. Once it's here, the Stearns County Parks Department will need cross-country ski patrol volunteers. Volunteers can sign-up online and will get a free Quarry Park annual sticker.

Cross-country ski patrol volunteers provide information to skiers, record observations and provide needed assistance. Ski patrol volunteers monitor and report conditions at four County parks:

  • Kraemer Lake/Wildwood Park
  • Mississippi River Park
  • Warner Lake Park
  • Quarry Park

As a thank-you, patrol volunteers will receive a free Quarry Park annual permit for every two dates you patrol (max 4 dates/2 permits).

Online registration is just three easy steps and then you're well on your way to being ready for the snow. Bring it!
