Volunteering with the ESSC

We need volunteers to make this a successful program. Non-skiing volunteers are just as important to the program as those that ski or ride. Volunteer clinics are offered by the ESSC at no charge to those wishing to participate. If you are willing to volunteer, please contact your school rep for more information. Important dates are shown on our ESSC calendar. Volunteering is a fun way to meet the children of our valley, and others with an interest in our children and winter sports.

Requirements

    Attend our Volunteer Meeting on November 16th between 3:30 pm – 7:30 pm. This is an indoor session that must be attended by all volunteers. It is Junior Program 101!

  • Complete All Requirements

    You must complete all requirements in order to be a volunteer for the season.  If you are unable to attend the Volunteer Meeting on Nov. 16th, please contact your school rep (listed on this page).

  • Weekly Commitment

    Be able to make the weekly commitment – your group looks forward to seeing you and not a substitute each week. Each season 350+ volunteers are needed to successful run the program. We are looking for skiers, both nordic and alpine, snow boarders and even a few non skiers to assist this season. You do not have to be an expert skier or rider to participate and have fun with the children. Plan to attend the Volunteer Meeting and learn more about this great program that allows all valley children the opportunity to learn to slide.

ESSC Volunteer Perks:

  • Ski

    You are able to ski or ride on the morning or afternoon you teach for free.

  • Get a Volunteer Pass

    Upon completing the volunteer requirements you will receive a volunteer pass. This mid week/Sundays card allows you to ski or ride at local mountains and cross country centers twice during the season.

  • Improvement

    Your skills and understanding will increase with your attendance at the on-snow clinics. You must attend one but welcomed to participant at many.
