Birds of Prey
Volunteer Registration is LIVE! 

 

Parent volunteers are a key success to
the execution of Birds of Prey!


As Chris Ogilive shared, "Each year, the Vail Valley Foundation (VVF) hosts this event and asks the “experts” at SSCV to contribute to the smooth operation of the event. This involvement helps promote ski racing in our community, provides a lens into the very top ranks of the sport and ensures that we continue the mutually beneficial relationship of support that exists between SSCV and the VVF. Our participation in the successful execution of this event is very important for our young athletes, our club and our community."
