You don't have to ski well (we're on the bunny slope). Dependability, enthusiasm and rapport with the kids count for more. And there are lots of other volunteers around for support and guidance.
We meet at 12:30-12:45, and officially ski from 1:00 to 3:00. Unofficially, we ski from when the kids are ready until they're "pooped" (usually 2:00 to 2:30).
