Aspen Skiing Company Employees: If you'd like to arrange a volunteer project for your department please email Matthew Hamilton. Below are some of the volunteering programs that we collaborate with.
ROARING FORK OUTDOOR VOLUNTEERS (RFOV)Custom Group Project – Aspen to Glenwood
If a group of at least 6-8 volunteers would like to volunteer together, a custom group project could be organized with 10-14 days’ advance notice. Projects can take place down-valley or in town, ranging from the Wulfsohn Trail to the Ute Trail.Contact Matthew Hamilton
if interested. Let him know how many people you would have, whether it would be a full-day or half-day, where you’d like to be, and he will coordinate a project with RFOV.Become a RFOV Ambassador today!
You don't have to swing a pulaski to bea steward of our treasured public lands. Maybe you're not up for the physical labor that goes into building new trails and rock walls, but you'd still like to help RFOV in its mission to engage the community in trail and restoration projects...
Do we have a solution for you! RFOV is looking for volunteers to work behind the scenes. You'll be the one guiding, directing, and organizing the event -- no trail tools needed. Whether you're at the trailhead on project day handing out refreshments or joining committee meetings to discuss recruitment strategies, there is a whole world outside of trail day that you can be a part of. We're looking for dedicated individuals who can help make each project successful and rewarding for everyone who steps on the trail that day.
Ambassadors do a variety of different things to help our projects run smoothly. Maybe you can be the photographer that takes the next stunning photo to land on our publications. Or perhaps you'll be the friendly face at popular trailheads recruiting new volunteers. As an Ambassador, you'll learn the ins and outs of Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and what we do.
If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador and want more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or give us a call at (970) 927-8241.
