In addition the Lead Groomer is responsible for caring for the equipment, including making arrangements for maintenance and repairs.If you are someone you know is interested, please view the full Job description below and contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to everyone who showed up for our season kick off event. We had a blast and are so grateful for our incredible Sandpoint community.
Sandpoint Nordic Club needs your help to complete the building of the new ski trails at Pine Street Woods and with the maintenance of the Lakeshore trails. We are hoping for November snow and want the trails to be ready in case we get it. All are welcome to help with the trail work - the more the merrier! We'll have some coco on hand so bring your reusable mug along with your work gloves and warm clothes. Volunteers will mostly be pulling roots, cleaning up after the excavator and clearing away fallen tree limbs. This is our last big push to get the new trails ready before the ski season begins. We need you!
