ORCA Adaptive Ski & Snowboard Program
If you're someone who love alpine skiing, snowboarding, or Nordic skiing and would like to share your passion, meet new people, and ski/snowboard for free, become an ORCA Volunteer Adaptive Instructor! ORCA offers flexible volunteer schedules to meet your needs. Adaptive Lessons are offered to every Saturday and Sunday, from the beginning of January to mid-April with morning sessions running from 10am-noon, afternoon sessions from 1pm-3pm.
We highly appreciate a full-day commitment from volunteers (9:30am-3pm); however, are pleased to accommodate 1/2 day commitments as well. For each 3 sessions (or 1.5 day equivalent) of volunteering on the slopes, ORCA and Eaglecrest award you with a complimentary voucher for a free lift ticket or lesson that is good for any day of the 2017 season. Volunteers also recieve discounted rental prices, and have the opportunity to join a fun and unique community at Eaglecrest!
