Summary

We have several non-skiing roles for any volunteer (Age 16+)
Loading & unloading sit skis on the drag lift.
(See text below for definition)

Detailed description

We use what is called a button or drag lift, to raise sit skis up the dry ski slope.

This is done by using a series of straps connected to the pilot and skier sitting in a skit ski, which has a quick-release loop of webbing, that the loader has to hook a web loop around the seat of the drag lift.

We need volunteers to hook the webbing loop onto the drag lift, (Whilst we use the terms `loading' and `unloading' there is no physical lifting involved).


The position does not require any lifting, only a reasonable level of fitness and dexterity.


All our opportunities can be covered by skiers, at any time during the day, if you so wish, depending on volunteer availability.


You will receive training in all areas.


For the one day each month we operate at the dry ski slope, we separate our day into three sessions, to allow our skiers an hour and a half each:

1) 10:45 am until 12:15

2) 12:30 pm until 2pm

Lunch - 2 pm until 2:30 (You can buy food and drink at the ski centre)

3) 2:30 until 4pm
