Volunteering

We are so grateful for all of the volunteers at Chester Bowl that make our program possible. We truly could not have a ski and snowboard program without all of you generously giving your time!

Completing your volunteer hours also ensures that you are eligible for your volunteer refund and that you will be in the “first bucket” for the following year’s equipment lottery.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Families are required to volunteer for 6 or 12 hours, depending on family size and gear rented.  If you are looking to sign up for your volunteer hours, concessions are a good place to start.  We need three individuals working each shift while we are open.

Click here to go to SignUpGenius to schedule your concessions hours. [note: link is for 2017/2018 winter and will be updated for 2018/2019 winter in late Fall, 2018]

Our other big need for volunteering is on our race days. We have six key races this year, and each needs a large crew of volunteers to run.  Our races are January 7th,  January 14th,  January 21st, February 2nd, February 11th, and February 18th.  [note: race dates were for 2018; 2019 race dates still TBD] The paper volunteer signup pages for the next upcoming race is taped to the door in the main hallway of the lower level of the chalet.

If Chester Bowl closes the hill for the day because of weather conditions (cold, etc.), concessions volunteers that were scheduled for the day will still get credit for their hours as if they were present. This is the only volunteer opportunity with this option; if ski races, the fall hill cleanup, or other volunteer shifts are cancelled, volunteers will NOT get credit for those hours and will need to seek other alternative volunteer opportunities.

Changing your volunteer shift:

If you are scheduled to volunteer, and find you are unable to make a concessions volunteer shift, it is ESSENTIAL that you find a replacement volunteer and/or inform us.  If we do not have enough volunteers, we would be unable to operate our concession stand for that time.  If you need to change your commitment, the procedures are as follows:

1. First, try to find a replacement for yourself.  You can contact families you know or look at the bottom of this post for substitutes to call.

2. Contact the Concessions coordinator for the month to either report who the replacement is, or that you were unable to find one.  Volunteers are unable to make changes to SignUpGenius, but the coordinators can.  This season’s coordinators are:

Patrice & Dan Menor (December 9- January 14): (218) 310-8438

Joyce Cagle (January 15- March 18): (218) 348-4222

3. If the shift is that day, and you are unable to find a volunteer replacement AND unable to reach the coordinator, then please call Chester Bowl at 724-9832 to let us know so we can find a replacement.  Please do not cancel without finding a replacement or letting us know!
