Volunteers

We are always on the lookout for volunteers as we try to keep up with the demands of the growing festival. The festival wouldn't be what it is today without the support of our amazing volunteers - and we are immensely grateful!

TRANSPORT

If you live in Wanaka we may be able to provide transport to and from The Remarkables each day. Please contact us for more information and availability. 

It is essential that you carry chains (and know how to fit them) if you are driving to The Remarkables. This includes 4WD/ AWD vehicles as the weather can be unpredictable.

COMMUNICATION

We will mainly use email for important, general updates in the lead up to the festival but WhatsApp will be primarily used during the festival. Please join the community WhatsApp chat here.

AVAILABILITY & CANCELLATIONS

If your availability changes or you can no longer volunteer at the festival, please let us know. We put a great deal of time into organising the festival and finding volunteers and we need to ensure we have enough help on the day to support our participants so they can enjoy their time on snow. 

LIFT PASSES

The Remarkables will provide FOC lift passes for each day that you volunteer. If you already have a season pass, you can let us know on the registration form. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

The festival is a really fun, rewarding and friendly environment. We are all there for our love of snow sports, to meet new people and enjoy the mountains together. 

We understand you are very generously giving up your time to volunteer at the festival and we want to get out and enjoy the snow

POLICE VETTING

All volunteers will be required to complete a police vetting form. Please let us know if you have already completed this as part of the vetting for a New Zealand Adaptive Volunteer Program.

If you have any other questions, please visit our FAQ page or contact us directly.
