Volunteer Course Officials
Course Officials Guidelines
It is very important that Volunteers understand the various Course Officials positions undertaken at Interschools events before they volunteer. We recommend that all Volunteers read the Course Official Guidelines and/or attend a Course Official Briefing.
Volunteer Check In
All Volunteers must check in before making their way to their was to the top of the course for the course inspection time. For events at Perisher, this is in the race room in the Perisher Skitube Terminal. Please check in 30 minutes prior to the course inspection time of your event.
What happens on the day if I cannot Volunteer?
In the event that you cannot fulfil your volunteer course official’s position your school must provide a replacement for you to fulfil your role. Failure to do so may result in a fine and sanctions on the school.
Volunteer Course Officials Lift Tickets
Volunteers are entitled to a free of charge lift ticket on the day they are volunteering. This lift ticket can only be used by the Course Official if they do not already have a lift pass or season pass. Course Official lift tickets can be collected at the Race Office at the Perisher skitube terminal. If you are travelling from Bullocks Flat, you can collect a train ticket and then your full day lift ticket in the Perisher skitube terminal.
How long do I Volunteer for?
Volunteers are required to be on course 10 minutes before the course inspection time until all competitors on the course have finished their race. It is difficult to estimate how long a course takes to complete as it is determined by the number of competitors on the course, snow conditions, etc but it can take anywhere between 1.5 to 3 hours.
Please be prepared for all weather conditions when you are volunteering on our courses and make sure you have clothing options for all conditions!
Gate keepers can be the most exposed to the elements and will be standing or sitting down for the duration of the course. You will be required to write notes in this position so please bring either inner gloves or similar that you can write with.
