Boys & Girls Club Learn to Ski Series @ Hilltop, Alaska

The Mountain View Boys and Girls Club Ski Instruction series kicks off with our first night 2/23 at Hilltop! We are inviting you to volunteer with us to instruct the Mtn View B&G club how to ski! We will have 4 sessions 2/23, 3/2, 3/23, and 3/30.

All ages and skill levels welcome (preferred at least confident skiing capability). If you are interested see the details below and email meg@shejumps.com
Ski Instruction Series Details:

Arrive between 4:30 and 4:45 PM in order to coordinate with me, grab a lift ticket (provided by Hilltop/SheJumps) and prepare for the arrival of the Boys and Girls Club.

There will be between 25 and 30 kids of various elementary ages. Most will have limited skiing experience, while a few may have come to our previous ski instruction series. Your role will be to be to help the kids put on ski gear, provide instruction on the bunny hill (how to stop, pizza/french fry, turns), aid in the use of the rope tow, and accompany the more confident kids up the chairlift and down the main runs. There may be a few older kids who are confident / skilled enough to take a few runs by themselves. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a certified ski instructor; there will be plenty of roles for people of all levels – like helping kids onto the rope tow!
