Hey I was just wondering if anyone here worked at grouse and could give me a little advice. I really want to volunteer at grouse to help teach ski wee. I think it would be an awesome way for me to get on the mountain more and give back to the mountain I've been skiing since I was like 5. I don't have any ski training certification which is why I want to start as a volunteer and hopefully take the course after the volunteering so I can start teaching. I had a friend who did it last year and she had a great time, albeit miserable due to the rain and conditions.
I believe I have the right credentials as I've been skiing and snowboarding for the last 10 years or so and I have work and volunteer experience. I volunteer at a day camp over the summer for little ones so I'm very used to working with 3-6 year olds. The only problem is, is that I don't have a reference number for my volunteer job. The number I had is for their "clubhouse" and is closed for the summer. I'm going to work today and will try to get a reference number, but my job is in the food industry which is a littler different.
Does anybody know how important it is to have references for the volunteer application? I looked at the application online and will fill it out after I get some reference numbers.
Anyway if anybody has any tips, connections, or any knowledge they could pass on that would be much much appreciated.
