Applications are now being accepted for more than 600 volunteer positions as Utah prepares to host the 2019 FIS Freestyle, Snowboarding and Freeski World Championships, Feb. 1-10, 2019.
Volunteers for the 2019 World Championships will enjoy a front row seat to all the action and have the pleasure of welcoming more than 1,300 athletes and teams from 36 countries. In addition, volunteers will be rewarded with lift ticket vouchers from the host venues - Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain and Solitude Mountain Resort. They will also receive official event uniforms and meals during volunteer shifts. A variety of volunteer positions are available, including on-mountain and off-mountain opportunities.
“A strong, dedicated group of volunteers are key to successfully executing this world class event, and showcasing Utah’s Olympic and winter action sports legacy,” said Calum Clark, Chief of Systems and Operations for U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
Volunteers are asked for a minimum commitment of four, eight-hour shifts from January 12 – February 11, 2019 and are primarily based at the three host venues. A minimal number of positions are also available at the Salt Lake City International Airport, Park City Welcome Center and in the town of Park City.
The 2019 FIS World Championships will feature more than 25 different medal events across eight sports, making it the largest winter sports event Utah has hosted since the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain’s history of hosting World Cup events combined with Utah’s rich Olympic legacy and support of sport played a large role in securing the bid for Worlds back in 2014. Solitude Mountain Resort was added to the venue line up in August 2016. All three resorts have successfully hosted test events, including snowboardcross and skicross events at Solitude as part of the 2017 Toyota U.S. Grand Prix.
For the 2019 World Championships, moguls and aerials events are scheduled to take place at Deer Valley Resort. Park City Mountain will host halfpipe, slopestyle and big air competitions and Solitude Mountain Resort will host snowboardcross and skicross.
