Volunteer for Skiing

We are excited that you are interested in volunteers for our adaptive alpine skiing program.

Adaptive skiing provides adults, veterans, and children with disabilities the opportunity to experience downhill skiing or snowboarding. As a volunteer, you are helping them increase their emotional and physical wellbeing, achieve a sense of independence and accomplishment, and most of all have fun!

We can also guarantee that you will have fun on the hill, as you watch lives being transformed! Whether you are looking to be a skiing or a non-skiing volunteer, this is a great way to unleash the power of giving back.


Volunteer Opportunities

There are several ways to volunteer at skiing events:

  • Register as an on snow volunteer, assisting with adaptive lessons and developing your personal skiing and teaching skills
  • Register as an off snow volunteer, assisting with registration, equipment maintenance, and other various non-skiing responsibilities

Skiing Volunteer Training

Skiers of all experience levels welcome!
No previous adaptive skiing experience necessary. All equipment provided.

All volunteers are highly encouraged to come to the training sessions listed below. These sessions will give you the tools you need to assist people with disabilities and will make you a more useful volunteer. However, if you cannot make it, we can provide on the job training on event days. Please email if you are unable to attend any training sessions. Thank you again for volunteering.
