Last time I volunteer?

For the past several years, I've been a volunteer at one of the kids race that opens up the season of ski competition in Park City. For four day, we handle between 200 and 250 young skiers each day. I kind of like doing this because it provides me with a stash of free lift tickets that I can use when my children or friends want to ski with at Park City Mountain Resort.

Yet, it's a tough job; the weather is cold and for the first two days this year, I'm a hand timer at the finish which forces me to be standing for hours on end and this breaks my back. Between you and me, and just because of my now delicate back, this might be my very last season volunteering on behalf of our young racers. Just mark my words!
