Volunteer Opportunities

How can you get involved at Minocqua Winter Park?

It’s easy, and you don’t even have to be a skier to find where you fit in. Opportunities exist at all times of the year and, quite simply, Winter Park could not survive without the help of our wonderful volunteers.

“I am one of the many volunteers that assist skiers with trail passes, map instructions, conversation, and other activities that make skier visits to MWP more enjoyable. One thing I like about volunteering is being able to ski when I am there. That way, I really get to know what condition the trails are in. Hope to see you participating in our volunteer program this season.”

Volunteer Projects

We have a variety of tasks that we can always use extra assistance with. Most require little experience or can be learned with minimal training.  MWP volunteer opportunities can be personalized around your strengths and interests. You can become part of the MWP action and meet some wonderful people along the way.

*More specific information about each project coming soon*

Adopt-A-Trail

Self-paced trail maintenance program where individuals/groups choose a trail to work on for the entire off season.

Trail Work Days

Trail maintenance for un-adopted trails, specific problem areas, and other large projects. These are usually held on Saturdays in the late summer/early fall.

Year-round bike, ski, and running races. We are hosting two races this summer and will need volunteers for all aspects.

Trail Ambassadors

This is a self-governed group that provides guests with information, tips, directions, and help while on the trails. This summer, they will also have the chance to help with park operations.
