Not interested in skiing the race, but still want to be a part of the Nordic Spirit event? Have we got the job for you – VOLUNTEER! As you know, a race of this size wouldn’t be possible without the many volunteers who graciously donate their time and energy. We have many INDOOR and OUTDOOR volunteer opportunities as well as PRE-RACE and POST-RACE jobs.
