MSST is facing the same climbing expenses experienced by every organization in California. MSST was founded as a community ski education and racing organization, relying on the support of member families to keep the costs associated with the programs down. We are looking for a new board member (or two) to coordinate volunteer efforts in all of our programs. If you are interested please inquire at!

Parents/guardians registering their kids for MSST programs this year will be given the choice of signing up for volunteer hours (based on a point system), or donating an additional amount to the program to cover a paid employee covering those hours. This is to encourage participation by families in our programs and grow our programs without substantial increases in program fees. If you choose to volunteer you will be sent an email link to sign up for activities on a first come first served basis

Volunteer options will include, but are not limited to:

  • Gatekeeping or course maintenance at community races

  • Working with Holly at the base during Saturday mornings

  • Assisting starters coaches with loading and unloading lifts and skiing/boarding sweep

  • Assisting with day-of registration for community races (yes, that's back)

  • Course maintenance at High School races/States

  • Monitoring the top of practice courses on Saturdays (MSSP requirement)
