VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!
Can you afford a couple hours a week?
Big Bam Ski Hill is a non-profit, community volunteer driven operation. Without your support, we wouldn't be here. Thanks to so many, Big Bam is back. But, we can't do it alone. We need help to build a strong base of support.
I would love to help! I just have so much going on as it is. What if I just show up?
No commitment required. We would love a break throughout the day. Come whenever you like.
I have a day off on Saturday, but I really wanted to ski during the day.
If you knew you were coming down and we could schedule you into a shift or two. We'll waive your rates for the day on the hill.
I would love to be there every Sunday to help out!
If you are able to commit a collection of hours through the season? We'll issue you a season's pass to enjoy on the days you aren't scheduled.
I'm dependable and well organized. You can count on me to be there as your go to person this season.
Awesome. Once trained and comfortable with the responsibility of a given operation your support will help our executive team relax enough to focus on other opportunities.
You will have a STAFF pass issued to you. Your family's rates are waived and are welcome to use the facilities at no charge.
I would love to volunteer, but really, I have no idea what is involved. I have never worked at a ski hill before and I have no idea what I can offer as a volunteer.
You're not alone. Send us an email, catch one of us at the hill, or just let us know you're curious. We would love to give you a walk through the operations, introduce you to each area and provide you an overview of what is involved.
I have kids, can I volunteer while they ski on the hill?
Only if you can accept that their skill level will far surpass your own after a couple weekends.
However, we are very supportive of those parents that choke up a little with a proud tear in their eye when they see their little ones ripping and shredding it up on their own.
How old do I have to be?
Really, there is a place for everyone. All sorts of jobs from tidying up, raking the snow, sweeping/shoveling the deck, validating passes, etc.
Each operational area has a mental or physical demand of its own that really require a level of competance to the role and level of responsibility.
But, if you want a hard fast answer, let's work with 16+ for the roles of core responsibility (Tow/Patrol/Rentals/Admissions/Facilities) and go from there.
