YOUR PARTICIPATION IN OUR CLUB MAKES US ALL AWESOME!

Work Credits – EMSC Wants YOU!

To some the “Work Credits” requirement at Eldora Mountain Ski and Snowboard Club may be somewhat of a mystery;  hopefully it won’t be after you read this page.  Without the help of parents and volunteers, we could not operate our programs at the same high level that exists today.  

Races hosted at Eldora, The Annual Sample Sale, and other events that take place throughout the year would not be possible without the dedicated efforts of our many volunteers. We also utilize Certified USSA Volunteers to help provide programs that are instructive, fun, and safe.

Simply put – Work Credits are a system of tracking volunteer days that offset a financial commitment.  The Work Credits program requires parents to provide a check or credit card at the beginning of the season that can be “worked off” by volunteering. If you volunteer to gain enough Work Credit Points then the check is shredded at the end of the season.

The club’s survival is dependent upon volunteers. In order to help assure that the club receives the required volunteer support, a work deposit check is collected annually from each family at the time of registration. LERT requires all members to support the club through a minimum number of volunteer hours or pay a fee for the hours not worked. Many families exceed the number of hours required, which is greatly appreciated! Volunteers must sign up prior to the event in order to get credit for the hours worked. It is first come, first serve for the events you want to volunteer for.  

To encourage participation by all members, a work credit deposit check, dated May 1, 2021 is required at the beginning of the season. Each credit you earn is applied against your deposit. Your deposit check is shredded (un-cashed) only if you complete ALL YOUR WORK CREDITS and meet the Fundraising requirement by April 30, 2021. Otherwise the check is cashed after May 1, 2020 and a refund for the work credits you earned is sent back to you. 

All volunteers should keep their own log of work credits earned. Volunteers will receive a receipt for each day of work.

If you have a specific question about work credits earned please email Tricia Klomhaus – trish@lertprograms.com.

A Work Credit Check (Dated May, 1, 2021) , or a Credit Card on file must be submitted to the office by Oct. 24th for Core Programs and Nov. 14th for Jr. Race and Freeride Programs.

Checks may be turned in at Orientation (recommended) or mailed to: EMSC 1750-1 30th St. #431, Boulder, CO 80301

Each family is assigned a number of work credits listed below. Credit is earned by volunteering with club activities throughout the season.

Only one deposit is needed per family based on the athlete with the highest work credit requirement.
