Greetings Ski Volunteer!
Thank you for your interest in helping with our adaptive snow ski program.
You will find our volunteer registration form, as well as a copy of “Volunteer Guidelines and Policies”, a document approved by our Snow Ski Committee. Please read the latter for your own information. Also, complete the registration form and return it to:

In order to schedule skiers for lessons this year, it is important that we get information regarding specific dates and times from our volunteers. Even if you are not sure of all your dates at this point, please return the form anyway with dates you know and dates you are not sure of, so that I can get an idea of how many participants we will be able to accept for various dates.
If you are signing up as a volunteer at Pine Knob, assume that you will be on the list to volunteer on the dates/times you indicate, and you should not expect further communication from me. Otherwise, expect to show up on the dates/times you indicate. Our local ski clinics are held at Pine Knob Ski Resort in Clarkston. In case you are unfamiliar with Pine Knob, it is north of Pontiac off I-75. When traveling north from the Detroit area, exit at Sashabaw Rd. Turn right on to Sashabaw, and Pine Knob is on your right. If you need further directions, the number at Pine Knob is (248) 625-0800. When you arrive, come in the main entrance and continue down the ramp past the window lift ticket window. We will be in the room closest to the hill on the left side of the hall. Please come to the registration table when you arrive.
Regarding our weekend ski clinics at Crystal Mountain and Schuss, the resorts have provided us with complimentary accommodations for 10-12 people at one of their local condos or houses. Volunteers from out of the area are “chosen” to stay in these accommodations from the pool of volunteers who are needed which is determined by the participants that are coming. . For further information about the complimentary housing you can read “Volunteer Guidelines and Policies”
If, at any time, you are unsure if we will be skiing on a certain date due to weather conditions, please check the website or face book. We will make a decision before 10:00 the night before if we need to cancel for safety reason.
It’s important that I know as soon as possible about cancellations, so we don’t accept too many participants.
We appreciate your interest in helping with our ski program, and for your cooperation in completing the enclosed registration form as soon as possible. The $25 yearly membership fee helps defray our costs to maintain equipment and purchase new equipment, and adds to our membership count, which in turn, improves our position to obtain grants and other financial support for our programs. We strongly encourage you to join!
Looking forward to a great ski season!
