Volunteer Opportunities

Get to know the four peaks of Gore Mountain with our mountain ambassadors who are the living embodiment of Gore’s brand and lifestyle! In addition to free orientation tours, they offer information on terrain, facilities, lessons, and rentals. The goal of the ambassador team is to provide enhanced guest experiences with an increased focus on safety both on and off the mountain.

While a certain level of skiing/riding skill is encouraged, it is not required to be a great ambassador. The best ambassadors are those who love the sport of skiing/riding, enjoy sharing it with others, and want to help our guests have a safe, memorable, and enjoyable experience at Gore Mountain.

Get Involved!

We are looking for snow sports enthusiasts who want to interact with guests both on and off the hill promoting safety and providing enhanced guest experiences. In exchange for 20 volunteer days, ambassadors receive awesome mountain perks like a season pass for the 2021/22 season and free tickets to share with friends and family.
