Whaleback Mountain Club is a volunteer-based club. In order to keep registration costs down for all participants, we choose to host several events at Whaleback mountain. In order to make those events successful, we need everyone's help. This year we have introduced a new Volunteer Credit System for the 2019 season.
If your child is a member of the Core Freestyle, Core Snowboard or All Mountain, we are asking a minimum of (3) parent volunteer credits per athlete.
If your child is a member of the Core Devo Teams, we are asking a minimum of (2) parent volunteer credits per athlete.
If your child is a member of the Minicore or Minicore Plus Teams, we are asking a minimum of (1) parent volunteer credit per athlete.
There are many different opportunities available - from support on the hill, support in the lodge, to preparing meals for volunteers. Opportunities vary from .5 credits to 1 credit. They are described in the Job Description portion of the Volunteering page.
We are counting on everyone to step up and pitch in. Other ski clubs require a deposit upfront as part of each athlete's registration. Within our Whaleback Mountain Club community we know that we will get the help we need to make the events successful for the athletes.
If you cannot fulfill your volunteer credits we recommend a $50 per credit donation in lieu of your time. We have yet to implement a formal monetary penalization but rely on the honor system of all members.

Various other opportunites may be available on an as needed basis, and will be included in each athletes credit total.

Please be sure to note the date and time of the spots you sign up for on the volunteering list. The system only allows us to maintain one list for the entire season.
