Here’s some general information about volunteering with our program. ASA is primarily volunteer-based and is always looking for more on-snow instructors. We don’t require any previous experience with instruction or with working with people with disabilities. We only require volunteers to be intermediate skiers/snowboarders.
We also provide in-house training that all volunteers are required to complete each season. All new volunteers are required to complete an A and B training. You can find the schedule of all our trainings and upcoming participant lessons on our Google calendar: http://goo.gl/JxDIXt. To sign-up for trainings, please contact us at 970-259-0374 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you absolutely cannot make any of these trainings, please let us know.
Lessons run seven days per week throughout the season. Lessons run typically from 10 AM to 3 PM although some groups arrive or depart at different times. A volunteer’s time commitment varies from person to person. We have instructors who volunteer three to four days per season and others who volunteer three to four days per week. It’s completely up to you. If you’re able to commit to 10 days during the winter season, you’re eligible to purchase a discounted season pass. Otherwise, we provide lift tickets the day that you’re volunteering as well as an opportunity to earn discounted skiing/riding during the season.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 970-259-0374 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
