World Cup Volunteers Needed
November 22-December 8
It is an exciting time of year with the Men’s and Women’s World Cups at Beaver Creek just around the corner. These events require an enormous number of race volunteers to create a safe and successful training and competition venue for world class athletes from around the world. Please consider volunteering for the positions listed below. This is a great opportunity to be a part of bringing the best of alpine racing to our Valley, an event which has an amazingly positive impact on our community and serves as a huge inspiration to all of our SSCV athletes. Thank you so much for your consideration. If you have questions, please e-mail CB Bechtel at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Some key advantages to volunteering at the Beaver Creek World Cup races—
1. The more volunteers we have to fill the below positions the less it will impact SSCV athlete training schedules as we will need less coaches and athletes to help out.
2. Those volunteering 6 or more days will receive a Beaver Creek World Cup volunteer jacket.
3. Vail Valley Foundation is requiring all volunteers at the 2015 World Championships to have World Cup volunteer experience at these upcoming World Cups in Beaver Creek.
The schedule and related volunteer needs are set forth below. See the asterisks below for volunteer needs/descriptions.
