Volunteering

We are 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 able to sign up first for equipment fittings next season.

Families are required to volunteer for 6 or 12 hours, depending on family size and gear rented. All signups will be online, and accessible from this page when ready for signups.

2022/2023 Volunteer Opportunities

Chester Creek Concert Series

The Chester Creek Concert Series consists of ten free Tuesday night concerts at Chester Bowl. The City of Duluth is the lead agency, and Chester Bowl supports the series.

Each week we need three volunteers to help the event happen. We meet at the stage one hour before show time for training and to get bright vests and radios. The first hour is spent helping direct cars to parking. During the 90 minute show volunteers are available to help as needed, but mostly just get to listen to the music. After the show, we spend up to 30 minutes picking up garbage and otherwise cleaning up the area.

Volunteers must be 18 or older. This is the first volunteer opportunity that could count towards your winter volunteer requirement for winter 2022/2023.

Please review the available slots at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d4daaae2ca4fa7-chester1 and then click on the button to sign up. The listed times are the volunteer times, with concerts starting one hour later (start times shift in August). The concert on August 23 is a rain date, and will only be used if one of the prior weeks is rained out.

Fall Fest Volunteering

We will need dozens of volunteers to help out on event day for Fall Fest. Volunteers must be available for both the event day, Saturday, September 17th, and the rain date of 9/18. A signup will be here closer to the event.

Snowmaking volunteers

In late November and early December we make snow. Once we start the process, it is a 24/7 operation as temperatures allow. We need a volunteer here around the clock to monitor the snow guns, make minor adjustments, and call us for backup if something looks wrong. A signup link will be posted here closer to the beginning of the series to get you on an email scheduling list.

  • Are you interested in helping us register participants for Freestyle Fridays? This position would require volunteers to collect waivers, hand out competition bibs, and do some light data entry.
  • A signup link will be posted here closer to the beginning of the series.
