Volunteer to help out on Opening Day

Valmont Bike Park opens on June 11 and we have no idea how many people to expect - probably a ton! To keep things running smoothly, the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department has asked for your help. The Parks Department and BMA need lots of volunteers on hand for some shift work Saturday, June 11 between 7 am and 7 pm.

More Info and Sign up for Opening Day

Be a Valmont Bike Park Host this summer

Volunteers are also needed throughout the summer. We expect that all summer long, folks will be flocking to this park to enjoy the world-class new facility, but might be a little at a loss on exactly which jump lines are right for them or the best way around the Glade trails. That's where you come in. City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department has asked for your help. They want to train up some people as Park Hosts to know the park backwards and forwards, so that you can then convey that info to the general public. The Parks Department needs you to understand the layout of the park so you can tell XC and DJ riders where to go, so you can help people understand that different park features are built for different ability levels, and so you can answer people's questions about the park and keep everything running smoothly.
