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.
Dude it's a volunteer job, I don't think your references really matter that much.
No wonder, everyone fucking hates you because your more of a douchebag than charmander and emopoppins put together.

hey dude, you're a cunt. thats just my opinion though. i feel like you could have used your time better or more productively or some shit learning how to not be a cunt, or be less of a cunt. but um, its just my opinion.
ah fuckit, nah, you're just a cunt.
That's what I thought.... I sent them an email about it but the application form has references from work experience and volunteer experience. Plus I'm supposed to give 3 professional references I've known for more than a year.
Maybe it's not that important, but they're also only hiring 20 so I'm sure there will be competition for it.
Haha yea you that popular around there? Do you work there or? If I'm gonna name drop I should have a little bit of info haha.
I'm going to call their HR number today or tomorrow and see if I can talk with Laura or whoever is in charge of hiring. I'm not sure if they do interviews for this job, might be just based on resume which is why I want to talk with the hirer to get me an edge.
Yea... after being put on hold about 3-4 times I hit a manager who said she doesn't start until like mid october... She did give me the email for a Toby Barrett who is the head of ski school? She said I might have some luck there.
I did email the email address where we're supposed to apply but I got nothing back so I'd rather know that I could get my application to the source.
Her name is Julianna. Are you doing it again this year?
I'm getting back into skiing after skiing from like age 5-12 then snowboarding from like 12 to now so I'm thinking this would be an awesome way to get me skiing a bunch. I skiied a couple times last year and still had a pretty good grip on it all.
