THIS PROGRAM WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT VOLUNTEERS! The success of this program relies on lots of volunteers. Can’t ski or ride, that’s OK! There is a volunteer role for you! See below for more information.
On-Foot Helpers - For those new to skiing or riding, but want to help. We can definitely use on-hill support from those on foot!
On-Hill Group Leaders - The group leaders are confident skiers/riders who are the primary point of contact for a group of 3-8 skiers/riders, will represent Thetford Rec in a positive way, and will ensure safe, kind and responsible behavior of their group while at the Skiway.
On-Hill Assistant Group Leaders - Supports the group leaders, helps keep kids together, having fun and being safe.
On-Hill Substitutes - Those who can provide occasional on-hill support but may not be able to commit to all Ski days.
Lodge Parents - Lodge parents provide vital logistical support which ensures group leaders and assistants can spend more time out on the slopes with their groups. Some tasks include: managing attendance, setting up and clearing lodge tables, sign in sheets, lost-and-found, facilitating day-of communication with the school and parents as needed, helping students who may need a break while their group remains on the hill, etc.
