Volunteers help us continue to offer some of the best cross-country ski trails in southern Ontario.
When you volunteer with the Bruce Ski Club, you make it possible for us to keep our cross-country ski and snowshoe trails affordable and accessible.
Volunteers play many roles in the Bruce Ski Club — from grooming the ski trails, to helping out with cross-country ski races, to keeping our facilities looking great.
Even our Board of Directors and Executive Committee are staffed by volunteers.
Here are some of our current volunteer opportunities. If you have another idea for how you can use your skills to help the club, please contact us.
- Work parties in the fall to clear the cross-country ski and snowshoe trails of bushes, trees and debris
- Grooming the ski trails at each of our locations in the winter
- Cleaning the ski hut at the Sawmill Nordic Centre throughout the ski season
- Volunteering at ski races and other events
- Feeding the birds at the Sawmill Nordic Centre
- Teaching children to ski as part of the Jackrabbit cross-country ski program for children
It is the responsibility of any Cross-Country Ski Ontario (XCSO) registered club to ensure appropriate volunteer screening is in place to help ensure the safety and security of Vulnerable Sector Persons.
Volunteer Canada defines Vulnerable Sector Persons as individuals who have difficulty protecting themselves and are therefore at greater risk of harm. This may include but is not limited to children, youth, senior citizens, people with physical, developmental, social, emotional, or other disabilities
Ensuring the safety and security of all members of our ski community is an upmost priority for the Bruce Ski Club. To this end the Bruce Ski Club has formalized a Volunteer Screening Policy.
