Work parties

Work Parties are an integral part of our club culture, an ideal way to contribute, a chance to meet like-minded people/families, and are a lot of fun in their own right. Senior members should complete two full Work Party days per year. For those unable or unwilling to do so there is an annual levy (in addition to membership subs) of $400 — or $200 if you manage to complete one Work Party day. This levy helps cover the running costs of the Club. One work party day comprises of at least six hours work. You must be a paid up, active member to do summer Work Party days or winter Volunteer (Volly) days.

Rewards system

Mt Olympus has implemented a tiered reward system for keen, handy and hardworking members: the more summer work party or winter volly days you complete the steeper your discount on skiing, accommodation and canteen purchases. These discounts only apply in the year following your Work Party days (unless by prior arrangement with the committee).

Winter volunteering

The club needs lots of help during winter either as volunteer patrol, emergency rope splicing, or bringing the food trailer up from the flatlands. Winter volunteers can stay in the lodge for $30 per night if they complete two work days either side of their night’s stay. This rate includes skiing on your breaks, accommodation and food. Not your bar tab, unfortunately.
