Featured volunteer opportunity

  • Advocates of Routt County is hosting a Volunteer Open House/Orientation from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 23. The orientation will be held at Crawford Room at Centennial Hall. Advocates are looking for volunteers of all types, including crisis line, office and social change volunteers. Contact if interested in volunteering or for more information.

Time-sensitive volunteer opportunities

  • The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club needs help at an upcoming snowboard event at Steamboat Resort and Howelsen Hill. The club is hosting some of the top parallel snowboard racers in the country in the Race to the Cup. Events include Parallel GS on All Out at Steamboat Resort on Jan. 23, Parallel SL on the face at Howelsen on Jan. 24, FIS parallel GS at Howelsen and USASA GS/SL for all ages on Jan. 25. Two start hand timers are needed each day. Use a stopwatch and a clipboard to record times that the athletes leave the start. This is back-up timing in case the electronic system fails. Six gate judges are needed every day. Monitor a section of gates on the course to make sure the athletes go around the gates correctly. Record mistakes on a card for the race officials. Volunteers receive a day ticket to get on the mountain or Howelsen for the event, a sack lunch, a voucher good for one day at Steamboat Resort with no restrictions.
