Volunteering not only makes you feel good, but it has a direct and immediate impact on those around you. It is one of the most fun ways to learn new skills while contributing. And it doesn’t necessarily require ski expertise. Want to be our webmaster? Great! Spend some time with our current webmaster and learn how to use WordPress and become a web pro. Have dreams of operating a small Kibota? Be one of our groomers. Want to be a coach? Attend a coaching course with other club coaches and learn how to inspire youth.
We have some of the lowest fees in the country because, every year, we have volunteers from across all programs of the club. We make it easy because we have ‘owner’s manuals’ for most of the roles that have kept a history of what is needed! This makes it very easy to fulfill your ‘mandatory volunteering’ that comes with various programs. For the curious, you can read about our volunteer policy here.
Check out the list below so you can start to plan your volunteer hour contributions! Thanks in advance.
