All of our rentals are escorted up and down the Vermilion River by a member of our staff on a "chase ski." Once you reach Lake Erie, the staff member remains in the riding area to monitor the rental skis for the duration of the booking. The Chase Ski Operator's job is to act as a lifeguard should our clients need assistance getting back on their ski in the event of a fall, keep track of time remaining on their rental, and provide a line of communication to shore in case of emergencies. Additionally, you will also be monitoring the riders for any activity that breaks our rules in regards to behavior while operating the skis. When not working with our clients on the water, the Chase Ski Operator will also be assisting at the dock when launching and returning the skis.
