Ski & Snowboard Peer Partner Application

Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.

This application must be completed by the Peer Partner Applicant themselves! 

Please complete this additional application to become a Peer Partner in the Ski & Snowboard Program. Volunteers accepted into the program will receive notification via email.
*Due to the popularity of this program and the limited number of students - we cannot guarantee placement to all volunteers that apply.

Peer Partners are youth between the ages of 12 and 16. Peers must be intermediate to advanced skiers or snowboarders. If accepted into the program, Peer Volunteers are paired with a youth participant with a cognitive disability for each of their weekly session lessons.
Peer Partner roles and responsibilities include: modeling good behavior and safe skiing, getting to know the participant, encouraging independence in the participant, and having fun!

Peer Volunteers must commit to accompanying participants on their weekly lessons for the duration of a Session (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday for the morning or afternoon only): 
Lesson Times: AM Lessons - 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM. PM Lessons - 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM 
Session 1: December 9th-18th (2-Week Commitment)
Session 2: January 6th - February 6th (5-Week Commitment)
Session 3: March 3rd - April 3rd (5-Week Commitment)

If accepted into the program, new peers must attend a training.
Session 1 Training: December 3rd - 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM 
Session 2 Training: December 31st - 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Session 3 Training: February 25th - 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The Ski & Snowboard Volunteer Coordinator will schedule peer volunteers on a training and send them notification via email. Peers will be assigned to the training for the session they are signed up for. Training takes place at the NAC Mountain Center at Park City Mountain Resort both on snow and indoors. Peers should arrive ready to ski in the appropriate clothing and with their gear ready. A day pass to Park City Mountain Resort is provided to any volunteers who do not already have a pass.
Please note that NAC does not provide ski or snowboard rentals.
