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 Permitees (Ski Resorts).
Providing positive guest/participant relations while informing visitors/participants is key to the success of the Tour With a Ranger & Snowshoe With a Naturalist Programs. It is essential that volunteers keep a happy, positive, politically neutral and professional attitude on the job.
SWN volunteers must be comfortable snowshoeing in uneven but flat terrain in varying depths of snow.
You must also possess a positive attitude toward the Forest Service, ski areas, and the general public.
