Become an Ambassador or Champion – Share the Passion
Ambassadors and Champions come from all walks of life. Peers respect them. They are passionate about skiing and/or snowboarding!
Ambassadors and Champions go beyond helping newcomers sign up for ski or snowboard lessons from instructors.They serve as role models by sharing information about why they love snow sports, how they got involved and why it is important to learn from trained professionals. In short, they are leaders.
They use their own unique ways to communicate why snow sports are fun, a chance to try something new, involve vigorous exercise, and provide an opportunity to spend time with friends or family members.
