Welcome to another season of snowshoeing, belly sliding, teaching, and sharing your passion for winter and the outdoors with young ones. SnowSchool planning is in full swing to ensure this upcoming season is one of the best.
We're in the makings of the largest season of SnowSchool yet! The program would not be where it's at today without your continual dedication and outstanding leadership. Thank you!
We'll have our annual Veteran Volunteer Orientation at the Bogus Basin downtown office (2600 N. Bogus Basin Rd.) on November 18th, 7-8pm. At this gathering we'll chat about the upcoming season, new additions to the program, and you can sign up for leadership dates.
I also wanted to let you know that I will be giving two presentations at REI to interested parties about becoming a SnowSchool volunteer. Not that this is something for you guys to attend, but wanted to let you know in the event that you have any family and friends that are interested in volunteering. If you do know of individuals or groups that might be interested, please invite them to the REI presentations (November 4 and December 9 at 7pm, REI on Milwaukee and Emerald).
Here are the training dates:
Activities Day (choose one): Saturdays, December 19th or January 2nd Pre-trip lesson presentations: Tuesday, December 15th, 10:30am, Bogus Basin downtown office (2600 N. Bogus Basin Rd.) Build the igloo: Sunday, January 3rd
Hydrology and ecology: Monday, January 4th
Week of January 4th: Veteran led groups with new interns and volunteers shadowing. This first week is huge in terms of numbers, 210 in the first 4 days! We'll need lots of veteran volunteers on-hand to show the new folks the ropes.
Thanks so much for making SnowSchool such an incredible program! Looking forward to seeing and catching up with you all!
