River Safety

RiverSafetyGroup_490px.jpgThe Tuckerman Inferno River Safety Team is responsible for all aspects of river race course preparation, boater safety on the river and emergency response and river rescue. The Saco River is a wild river with unpredictable currents, fallen trees and boulders, and knowledge of river reading is recommended for race participants and volunteers. River safety volunteers will be stationed at various technical locations on the river to assist athletes who capsize.

The kayak-to-bike transition point is typically at the Glen Ellis Campground. Volunteers man this section of the course in boats and on land and will respond to any accidents or emergencies as needed with backup support provided by our partner agencies including the White Mountain Swiftwater Rescue Team (WMSRT). 

River Safety team members should have all their own paddling equipment and gear to participate. Please list specific skills and experience that you have when signing to volunteer. Thanks!

Trail Crew Volunteers

Trail Volunteer sawingOngoing teams of volunteers are needed to help maintain our existing trail network. FOTR's focus is on maintenance and support of the John Sherburne ski trail and the Gulf of Slides ski trail. We'd love to have a limited number of qualified members sign up to become trail crew chiefs with an ability to maintain your own team of 6-12 trail crew volunteers that you can rally and motivate to participate on scheduled trail days. Trail crew chiefs should have skills in forest/woodlot management, be trained in proper use of tools like chain saws and pruning saws, and be experienced in trail construction techniques.

The work schedule for trail maintenance activities will be posted on the FOTR website and Facebook page on an annual basis. In the meantime, please help us by volunteering and/or making a thoughtful contribution. We are creating and maintaining a directory listing of trail crew volunteers who sign up to work trail crew projects so that you can coordinate with others and to see who else is helping out.
