Each summer, West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain Resort hosts a number of events including bike races, musical concerts, and festivals. To help put on these events, Snowshoe relies on volunteers of its Snowshoe Mountain Events Team. With twelve major events planned for this summer, Snowshoe is looking for additional volunteers to join its team, and is offering a number of benefits to those willing to spend some time this summer on the mountain.
Volunteers are assigned 4-hour shifts to perform various duties such as checking tickets, helping with set-up and tear down, and serving as parking attendants. For every two shifts worked (approximately 8 hours), Snowshoe provides Team members with one lift ticket, which can be used for skiing our swapped out for golf rounds. Tickets can be accumulated over the summer, and twelve tickets can be traded in for a season pass. Members can opt to receive one summer event ticket for every two shifts worked, based on availability. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to participate.
Other benefits include an Event Team ID (valid for 15% off Snowshoe food and beverage, 10% off retail merchandise, and summer lift access), discounted lodging during event weekends, an Event Team shirt, and an invitation to parties.
A NORBA National Championship series race is coming to Snowshoe June 20-23, and Snowshoe is seeking 100 Event Team Members to help out. For volunteers working 8 hours per day, Snowshoe will provide free housing during the event.
Snowshoe is also looking for volunteers for all of its major events throughout the summer, including the Snowshoe Bluegrass Festival (June 28 - July 1), Mountain Stage (July 13), the Fire on the Mountain Chili Cookoff (July 14), the Snowshoe Mountain Freedom Fest (July 19-22), the Taste of the Mountain’s Wine and Jazz Fest (July 27-29), and more.
