International cross country ski event needs Okanagan volunteers

Volunteers are sought for an international cross country ski event taking place in Vernon.

From March 25 to April 2, some of the best cross-country skiers in North America will compete at the Sovereign Lake Nordic Club in the high profile event.

“For a race of this calibre we have volunteer needs that are not usually required,” explains Volunteer Coordinator, Marylin Breneman.

“Things such as parking lot attendants, organization of athlete and volunteer banquets, food and refreshment stations, security, awards and more.”

It’s estimated that roughly 250 volunteers will be required for the event, which will have 800 athletes plus coaches, support staff and family in attendance over the course of nine-days.

“All volunteers will receive a branded toque, an invitation to a volunteer appreciation event and meals during shifts,” says Breneman.

“It will also be an opportunity to see top-level ski competition up close.”

Volunteers will also have a chance to win draw prizes including a stay for two at Nipika Mountain Resort near Radium Hot Springs.

Anyone interested can submit their availability and preferred tasks on the Canadian National Ski Championships website.
