Are you ready to be part of the high-speed action of world-class alpine ski racing? Join the team who puts together the only Audi FIS Ski World Cup stop in Canada and take pride in knowing the best downhill and super-G racers in the world are in your hands.
Planning is underway to host the first speed events of the 2021-22 World Cup circuit at Lake Louise – and we can’t do it without the Sled Dogs!
In anticipation of what the events will look like in November/December, we are committed to being prepared. We are working with various levels of government and public health officials on specific safety measures to support the best and safest Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup possible as we continue to navigate COVID-19.
Everyone’s safety is our top priority. With the incredible support of our partners, we are carefully preparing and planning for the unexpected. There is no doubt the event will take a different shape this year, but with your enthusiasm, skill and commitment we will be well on our way to being ready, willing and able to stage the Lake Louise World Cup. We are monitoring government and public health restrictions and developing strategies to operationally manage expectations and mitigate the risk of COVID-19. We will continue to pivot as needed so volunteers and athletes can return safely to Lake Louise.
We are sensitive to everyone’s personal situations and recognize that by making this decision today there is a possibility that your decision may change – but, in the spirit of forward-thinking we ask that you register if it is your intention to join us. Having enough Sled Dogs to put Lake Louise on the map this year is critical in our planning. And we need know by July 2 if we will have enough volunteers to go on with the show.
You’ll get accommodation, meals, a lot of laughs and a volunteer gift if you commit to at least five days. We are looking for enthusiastic, reliable and happy-go-lucky people with a can-do attitude. You’ll be assigned to a crew and we’ll make sure we teach you everything you need to know to be able to contribute in a meaningful way. And if you already know it, we’ll make sure you have all the tools you need to make it a great day!
Many of the positions are filled with returning volunteers, but there are a few opportunities to get in on the Course Crew. We match you up with seasoned veterans in this, the largest working group of the event. Track preparation, spectator fence installation, safety system installation, course control, gate judging, side-slipping and course maintenance is all part of the gig.
Positions including Medical, Net Crew, Race Administration, Team Finance, Volunteer Services, Media Operations, Marketing + Events and the Executive Committee are currently full.
Volunteer opportunities are separated by block and dates. You can choose to volunteer for more than one block. You have to be available for all the dates within the block and be ready and willing to work from start to finish.
