2015/2016 NORDIC AMBASSADOR PROGRAM 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:

We are currently looking for friendly, outgoing volunteers to educate Nordic trail users about appropriate use of the facility. All volunteer hours count towards a 2015/2016 Howelsen Hill Nordic Pass. 

Volunteers work a series of 1 hour shifts (no more than 2 shifts per week) at their convenience and as their schedules allow. ADULTS are required to work a total of 12 hours and SENIORS are required to work a total of 8 hours to receive a free pass.

Nordic Ambassadors can either purchase a 2015/2016 Howelsen Hill Nordic Pass at the beginning of the season and be reimbursed for the pass upon completion of the required hours, or they can wait until completion to receive their pass.  

If you are interested in becoming a Nordic Ambassador, our would like additional information regarding the program, please contact Emily Hines at 970-871-7031 or
