Becoming a volunteer coach is a wonderful opportunity to meet great people, experience exciting challenges, improve your skiing/riding skill, contribute to our community, and have fun!


By working together, we all help to create a fun learning environment that allows our athletes to excel. SUMMIT ADAPTIVE SPORTS will do its best to equip its volunteer coaches with the skills and knowledge necessary for our athletes to have a very rewarding experience. In return, we ask volunteers to take their commitment to SUMMIT ADAPTIVE SPORTS, and the athletes, very seriously.


Although volunteers do not receive monetary compensation, you do receive many benefits including season’s passes, lift tickets, and discounts (based on the number of hours you volunteer).
