Buddy Werner needs volunteers

The Buddy Werner Youth Ski League hosts between 200 and 250 local skiers and snowboarders, ages 7 to 14, for 14 weekends in the winter time. Some of the skiers ski on Saturday and the remainder on Sunday. The skiers are grouped according to ability into teams of approximately eight to 12 skiers. The teams compete, two at a time, skiing on a timed slalom course. The rest of the day they ski and ride all over the Sierra-at-Tahoe resort.

Three registration sessions have been scheduled at the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Complex, 1180 Rufus Allen Blvd. The final registration will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Nov. 13.

Registration cost is $75 per skier or snowboarder, $140 for two skiers or riders and $195 for three skiers or riders all in the same family. Lift tickets are an additional cost at a deeply discounted price.

The Buddy Werner Youth Ski League is staffed strictly by volunteers. In fact, in order to be able to continue coaching these young skiers, it is critical that additional adult volunteers are recruited for the current season. Typically, volunteers are parents of the participants, but this is not a requirement. Volunteering to help with this youth program is tremendously gratifying and volunteers don’t even have to know how to ski in order to help.
