Volunteer

MWAC utilizes volunteers in a wide variety of manners. If you have an interest in helping us out, please contact the appropriate person as listed below. Please understand that we are unlikely to accept individual volunteers to assist with our work in avalanche terrain. Uncertain and changing weather, variable schedules, other work obligations, and overall risk management concerns all play a role in limiting our use of volunteers in our field work. However, we encourage you to contact the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol (MWVSP) or another volunteer SAR group if you would like to explore this type of opportunity.

  • Mount Washington Avalanche Center

    MWAC has project work not involving travel in avalanche terrain on Mount Washington. If you’d like to learn more about these opportunities,

    Contact: Snow Rangers – mwactucks@gmail.com

  • Androscoggin District Trails Program

    Summer/Fall opportunities exist for helping maintain the trail network, including the Sherburne and Gulf of Slides Ski Trails. Opportunities for trail maintenance events with groups may be possible with advance planning.
