The programs of Ignite Adaptive Sports at Eldora Mountain Resort are provided by over 200 volunteers. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but they all share a love of skiing and a commitment to providing winter recreation opportunities to members of the community of persons with disabilities.
To become a volunteer for Ignite Adaptive Sports, volunteers will undergo training that is specifically oriented to providing a safe, fun, and educational experience for persons with disabilities. On-going training throughout the season is offered to maximize the instructor’s personal skiing/riding, teaching ability and technical knowledge. Sign up to learn more about volunteering with Ignite!
While some volunteers themselves have disabilities or have family members with disabilities, most of our volunteers simply want to share their skills and their love of the sport. Volunteer opportunities exist in several capacities including snowsports instruction, snowsports equipment maintenance, snowsports lesson supervision, and administration.
