Tour With a Ranger Volunteers are present at Brighton, Solitude, Snowbird and Alta on Saturdays, Sundays throughout the Ski Season. Volunteers interact with members of the general public through daily-guided interpretive programs and general (roving) contacts. Volunteers discuss the concepts of watershed, public lands and the natural and cultural features of the resorts/canyons.
Volunteers are seen as good-will “ambassadors” of the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation (CCF), the United States Department of Agriculture, the Forest Service, the Salt Lake Ranger District, and its Special Use Permittee (Ski Resorts). Providing positive guest relations while informing visitors is key to the success of the Tour With a Ranger Program. It is essential that volunteers keep a happy, positive, politically neutral and professional attitude on the job.
Volunteers must be proficient skiers/riders and able to ski at least blue runs. You must also possess a positive attitude towards the Forest Service, ski areas, and the general public. Volunteers must be capable of presenting an on-hill program for the skiing public. Volunteers will be responsible for being at the ski resort from 8:30 am till 2:00 pm, in all weather conditions. The minimum required commitment is 6 days, however we are looking for a select few to fill a leadership role who can commit to 12 days. Program administrators will evaluate you. They have the responsibility to dismiss volunteers who do not meet these criteria.
