Junior Reporter / Writer

The club is looking for a young person with an interest in writing about activities of the club from their own point of view. Stories could include winter or summer activities, a report on a recent ski race or participation in a local event. Your short stories will be published on the website or in the club monthly newsletter. The reporter is free to choose a topic. To volunteer, please contact us through this website.

Trail Maintenance and Work Party Volunteers
work party

In the Fall and Spring, volunteers are needed to support the Director of Trails in preparing and maintaining trails at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. Work parties are organized in advance and announced on Facebook and through the website mailing lists. Volunteers are asked to respond when available and assist in tasks identified by the Director of Trails. Typically we have two outings per season.

Signage Artiste

One volunteer to oversee the design and production of signage along the trails, on the kiosks and at the warming hut. Directional signs and other useful signage are updated and/or replaced when needed under the direction of one board member.

Saturday Morning Helper – Den Parent

This is a non-coaching task. The role of a Den Parent is to be available during JackRabbits lessons to ensure that young skiers are monitored and kept safe. At least two Den Parents must be present at each Saturday lesson.
Time commitment: Saturdays during winter for 1 hour (not including a short training session prior to season)

Gear Distribution Helper

This volunteer helps with allocating ski equipment to jackrabbit skiers. This usually involves one or two sessions in November. The serial numbers of the equipment are recorded on individual cards for each lessons participant. Total time commitment: 2-3 hours.

Inventory Helper

All boots, skis and poles are listed on a spreadsheet. The list is updated at the beginning of the season, at the end of the season and also whenever new equipment is added. This volunteer is also involved in assigning the gear to young skiers during the gear fitting session. This task is for someone familiar with simple spreadsheets. Total time commitment: 2-3 hours.

Event Helpers

Several volunteers will be needed to support the Events Coordinator before or during each event. This could be lending a hand in organizing and fundraising events, or assisting with event details like set up and day-of tasks. Total time commitment: a few hours per event.
