Do you love to ski and want to do it for free? Eagle Mount is looking for winter sports buffs to volunteer for its Nordic and alpine ski programs.
Eagle Mount provides therapeutic recreation to people with developmental or physical disabilities and children with cancer. Last year, more than 380 participants skied with Eagle Mount Bozeman thanks to almost 500 volunteers.
The Bridger Bowl and Bohart Ranch programs need volunteers to help for eight weeks beginning mid-January and ending mid-March. The Big Sky program needs volunteers all season, and starts on Thanksgiving.
Potential volunteers must at least be intermediate level skiers/snowboarders and above. Those who do not ski or snowboard but still want to volunteer can help with the cross country and snowshoeing program at Bohart. The lesson length for all snow programs is approximately 2.5 hours. New volunteers are asked to attend an orientation and one of the on hill weekend trainings.
Volunteers will be taught about disability awareness and given instruction on how to work with people with varying disabilities. Volunteers will be provided a ski pass for the days they volunteer.
Eagle Mount also offers swimming and equine programs year round and is always looking for volunteers in those programs.
