Ogden Nordic operations depend on enthusiastic, committed volunteers!   A commitment of 12 hours of volunteering gets you a season pass.  Occasional shifts at the yurt or at Winter Trails Day gets you a free day trail pass.  Volunteering at Ogden Nordic is a great way to meet people who love the outdoors and the winter, and it makes you feel good to help make this fantastic organization work!


Groomers are trained to drive the grooming equipment and they go out on the trails in the evenings.  They commit to a shift every other week that usually takes 2 hours.  When you contact Dave Jenkins, our grooming chief will contact you about our involvement. 

Nordic Center Volunteers

We need greeters and helpers in the yurt.  Nordic Center volunteers commit to work 3 hour shifts on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, and holidays that the Yurt is open. Volunteers greet and welcome visitors to the trails, sell trail passes, and help with rental equipment. Anyone who can commit to a regular 3 hour shift every week or every other week certainly helps make our operations run smoothly! Occasional shift volunteers are also welcome.

WINTER TRAILS DAY (WTD): Saturday January 20, 2018 from 9am until 1pm.    A Great Day to Volunteer!

-  Please contact to volunteer to help with Winter Trails Day.  Feel free to “volunteer” all of your friends and loved ones as well if you can convince them to come and help.   You may also call the Nordic Center and leave us a message with your phone number so we can contact you.  This is also a great way for season pass holders to complete their volunteer hours to get the off-hours keycode for the Nordic Center.  THANKS!!!

The following volunteer tasks are needed for Winter Trails day:
Greeters (mostly outside)
In addition to Nordic Center staff to help specifically with equipment, we’ve become accustomed to having several greeters outside throughout the day.  We will have our several tents that we will use as home base for our greeting team.  Our main job here is to provide smiling faces as people arrive.  Greeters also provide information about equipment availability and other organizations on site at the expo.  Mostly these people will be helping to direct traffic and flow to the various activities upon arrival.  Greeters can also help out inside the Nordic Center if we get rushed.

Parking Attendants

We need some volunteers to direct traffic into the lot and organize the parking rows so that we can maximize the space in the lots.

Ski Lesson Assistants:

The Ogden Nordic PSIA certified Ski School will provide coaches for ski lessons (skate and classic). 

Wax Clinics Assistant:

Wax clinics will be provided by our friends at Wild Rose Sports.  Thanks to Wild Rose for being a regular attendee at our WTD event!

Junior Games Volunteer

We need someone to organize our junior games at WTD.  If you want to volunteer to work with the kids then let us know.

Snow shoe and ski tour GUIDES

Once again we will need a couple of “Experienced O’Nordic Volunteer Guides” to lead cross country ski and snow tours in the park.  The director of the tour will need to quickly assess the skill of the group and decide where to go.  If you’re interested in showing off the trails and getting away from the buzz of the Nordic Center for a while, this is the activity for you!  You can also point out the beauty and pristine nature of North Fork Park…always a treat!

Snow Bikes GUIDES

North Fork Park now allows snow bikes on designated trails.  We have invited several bike shops in Ogden to come to Winter Trails Day with snow bike demos.  This will be a chance for our beloved ski community to try a snow bike.  There will not be a lot of bike traffic (just the demo bikes) and we have a layout that will allow skiers, snowshoers, and bikers to all exit the expo area on different trails to keep congestion down. 

MOONLIGHT GLIDES:  Saturdays:  December 2; December 30; January 27; February 24;   6:00 pm
Full-moon nights are special at Ogden Nordic. We need assistance in setting up tiki-torches, starting a campfire, serving hot chocolate, and snacks and just making it so people enjoy a nice evening in the snow.  V
