Sign Up for Your Member Volunteer Shifts

Remember a requirement of your Eagle Cap Ski Club Membership is you helping with Fergi operations during the season. Every member must volunteer for 4 days during the season. This is how we keep the membership dues affordable.

What is amazing is that we have over 300 members! If every member signed up, Fergi would always have enough individuals each day of operation to run smoothly. We can't open the hill unless we have all the slots filled for the day.

Volunteer Jobs for the 2023-2024 Season

  1. Ticket Booth Sales Person (9:45 am - 2:00 pm) - sell day passes and collect annual membership dues in the ticket booth. Hand out daily ski passes to individuals. Keep track of sales for the day. Remind members to sign up for their member volunteer days. One individual is needed for this duty.
  2. T-Bar Liftie (10:00 am - 4:00 pm) - help individuals and families load on the T-bar. Listen and respond to pertinent radio communication regarding T-bar operations. Communicate to the hill manager if any maintenance needs to occur (e.g. broken Ts, Ts not rebounding, etc.). Assist the hill manager in the morning in making sure bathrooms have toilet paper (restock as necessary), getting fires going in the lodge and voodoo, shoveling snow off decks, and taking out the trash from buildings. Six individuals are needed for this duty each day. This allows this group of volunteers to work together and rotate throughout the day so no one pulls Ts for more than one hour.
  3. Voodoo Watcher (2 shifts; 10:00 am - 1:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm) - ensure the safety of individuals and families exiting the T-bar. This entails watching individuals and families exiting the T-bar and stopping the T as needed. Keep a watchful eye on Ts properly retracting. Communicate with the T-bar liftie regarding stops and starts and to the hill manager if any maintenance needs to occur (e.g. broken Ts, Ts not rebounding, etc.). Listen and respond to pertinent radio communication regarding T-bar operations. One individual is needed per shift.

A total of nine member volunteers are needed each day to open Fergi.

All volunteers report to the hill manager at the beginning of their shift near the T-bar. The hill manager will provide a quick training for everyone and get you set up with radios and other equipment to do your duty for the day.

Something Came Up? Can't Honor Your Member Volunteer Days?

Go back to the sign-up form, log in, and remove your name from the duty. You must give a minimum 72 hours notice to remove your name off the sign-up form. If under 72 hours, you are responsible for finding a replacement, updating the sign-up form, and letting the hill manager know the changes.

Early Season Closures

If you sign up for days it is iffy if Fergi will even open and Fergi ends up closing due to conditions, you will need to go back and sign up for new days. Your member volunteer days only count if Fergi is open and you completed your commitment that day.
