Volunteer OpportunitiesTHANK YOU for volunteering! We NEED You!!Volunteers will be trained on the day of the event. Non-skiers can help with loading & unloading equipment, registration and base-camp support. Skiers and snowboarders may volunteer on the slopes in a variety of ways.
LocationAll of our ski dates are at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort near Pinecrest. Please meet at the Olympic Room, which is located on the lower level of the old (original) lodge–next to the ski shop between 8:30–9:00AM the day of your scheduled trip. A base-camp volunteer will check you in and provide instructions. Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from Dodge Ridge. Please check road conditions the morning of the scheduled trip to insure your safety on Highway 108 at http://www.dot.ca.gov/cgi-bin/roads.cgi or call 1-800-427-7623.
How much time is involved?We ask that every Skiing Unlimited volunteer give at least one Saturday in the ski season to help with the program. The day begins at 9AM and ends about 3PM.
What happens next?You will receive an email or a call (if no email is available) the Friday of the week before your scheduled ski date to remind you that you committed to volunteer the following Saturday. There is no need to respond to that reminder unless you cannot make the trip. Please remember the participants count on you; if you don’t show up, a participant may not be able to participate in snow skiing.
CostVolunteers receive a free lift ticket. If you have an annual ski pass at Dodge Ridge please let the office know to save costs for the organization.
What if it is very stormy or there is no snow?The office will make every effort to contact you if it is not reasonable to go forward with the trip because of adverse weather conditions. Sometimes this decision is not made until the Friday before the trip; you will receive an email letting you know if it is cancelled. If you are unsure, please call the office.
