Ten days that will blow your mind and 10 nights that you won’t
Boiled down to numbers and synapses, that’s what the 11
annual Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival is all about.
Fusing music, arts and sports, the festival is unlike any other
celebration of mountain culture. And organizers are looking for volunteers who
will get behind the scenes access during the festival. April 14-23.
W1 Inc., the sports and entertainment marketing company that
produces the Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival, is holding a volunteer
recruitment night at Merlin’s Monday, April 3 at 7 p.m.
The recruitment night provides volunteers with the opportunity
to get a better idea of what positions are available, have first pick at
scheduling shifts, as well as to meet some of the festival staff. Positions
include the alpine operations crew, VIP/media hosts, event photographers,
film/photo/fashion production helpers, the Big Air Bear publicity team,
marketing representatives for the "Street Team", and dog wranglers at
the Whistler Dog Fest, just to name a few.
The festival also has a few paid positions available to fill in
a "Lead Hand" capacity, as well as some limited promotions work.
Those interested in the paid positions are also asked to bring a copy of their
resume along, as staff will be conducting interviews throughout the night.
An online volunteer registration form, as well as more
information on the positions is available at www.whistler2006.com/volunteers.
