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!

Volunteer Opportunities:

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

 Click here to go to SignUpGenius to schedule your concessions hours.

Our other big need for volunteering is on our race days. We have six key races this year (plus the parent race!), and each needs a large crew of volunteers to run.  Our races are January 3rd,  January 17th, January 31st, February 12th, February 21st, and March 6th.  The paper volunteer signup pages for the races are currently upstairs at ski fittings, but will be moved to the lower level of the chalet when the ski season opens.


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 Jooners, but the coordinators can.  This season’s coordinators are:

Patrice & Dan Menor (Dec. 13 – Jan. 15) 310-8438
Jodi Symens (Jan.16 – Feb.15) 390-7461
Joyce Cagle (Feb.16 – Mar. 22) h)724-5242, c)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!


Substitute List:

When looking for volunteer substitutes, people on this list would welcome a call.  Please email dave@chesterbowl.org if you want to be added to this list.
