Events Volunteer

Base Area Operations
(Part Time / Winter Seasonal)


Events Volunteer is a new volunteer position at Sugarbush Resort as of the 2017-2018 season. Volunteers facilitate the guests’ experience at events by providing assistance and information before, during and post event occurrences so that Sugarbush may exceed our visitors’ expectations and enhance events in the future.

Events Volunteers will perform a variety of tasks that are event-dependant. Duties could range from preparing, distributing, and running Smores events during the day, to early morning, on-mountain preparation for ski/ride events to activity supervision, and everything in between.

In appreciation, Sugarbush will provide an all-mountain Season Pass, plus other benefits. Meals in the food court are discounted 50% when you show your staff/volunteer pass – even when at the mountain for a play day. Benefits grow with consecutive seasons of volunteering.


Event Volunteers perform a wide range of duties that will result in an enhanced guest experience. Duties will depend upon the specifics of the event.


  • Prepare, transport and distribute Smores at the Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen base areas
  • Stage equipment and materials before event starts
  • Direct and assist crowds during large events

  • Enjoyment in relating with people and comfort in representing Sugarbush Resort
