Crowsnest Nordic VolunteersBecome a Board member – the board meets for 2 hours once a month between September and May – it consists of a president, secretary/minute taker, treasurer, trails director, youth programs organizer, social coordinator and communications chief (and past president). Each board member will need to spend additional time on club activities each month to fulfill their role.

OR  volunteer for a committee, a project or one of our annual events. The work load of our club is not overwhelming. There is the fundamental drive to keep the trails maintained and groomed and to introduce more people to cross country skiing.

Each year we need volunteers to help with:

  1. The allocation of our loaner skis to the children in our youth programs – usually in early November.
  2. The organization of our annual loppet (ski race) which we try to run on the first Saturday in February.
  3. Our wind up BBQ in early April when all the loaner skis are returned.
  4. While we do have a contractor do much of the grooming work, there are opportunities
    to help with maintenance of our equipment.
  5. During the summer and fall we organize volunteer days to brush the trails and keep them free from overhanging branches that interfere with snow cover and the grooming crew.
  6. Coach the children in our learn to ski and other youth programs. Volunteers do n
    eed to take a course which is paid for by the club. This is very suitable for parents who have their children in the programs.
  7. Host a moonlight ski/snowshoe.

Every 3 to 4 years AGLC assigns us a casino to work at.  We need 20 volunteers and an organizer (known as the casino chair) to do this. This is a very important revenue source for the club. The next one will be in the last quarter of 2025. If we cannot provide enough volunteers for the 4 casino shifts
we do not get the funds.

In addition to that we try to take advantage of new opportunities but keep mindful of the commitments that come with them. Fresh ideas and energy are always a welcome addition!
