Cross-country ski-patrol volunteers are needed in four Stearns County parks to monitor and report trail conditions.
The volunteers would also provide information to skiers, record their trail observations and provide any needed assistance.
All will receive a short orientation. Skiers will have free access to the trails, and those who patrol for two-hour sessions will get a free annual sticker to Quarry Park.
Stearns County is grooming four parks: Kraemer Lake-Wildwood County Park, Mississippi County Park, Warner Lake Park and Quarry Park.
The patrol season will start Dec. 15 and go through Feb. 28. Sign-up has already begun. Information, orientation and sign-up are available via the Parks Department web page at StearnsCountyMN.gov/Recreation/Ski Patrol.
