SQUAW VALLEY & ALPINE MEADOWS TEAM AGREEMENT
This Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows (“SVAM”) Ski Team Agreement (“Agreement”) contains, among other things, the Travel Policies and Release, Team Code of Conduct, Financial Policies, Team Parent Code of Conduct, Chairlift Code of Conduct, Permission to Treat Minors, Supervision of Minors Ages 5 and Under, and the SVAM Shuttle Bus Policy. Each athlete, coach and other SVAM staff with the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Ski Team (the “SVAM Team”) and her/his parents, recognizes, understands, supports, and by signing this Agreement agrees to all of the terms, conditions, policies and procedures as set forth herein on behalf of themselves and their children participating in the SVAM Team program.
It is the SVAM Team’s priority to reduce injury and accident rates by enforcing sound safety measures and educating coaches, athletes, and parents on various practices designed to improve the safety and wellbeing of all participants. Skiing/Snowboarding is an inherently dangerous sport and we will always experience accidents, but we hope that our focus on safety – with both parents and staff demanding safe practices of our athletes and setting the best example – will reduce accidents while skiing/snowboarding, whether on the lifts, while training and competing, when traveling and in and around the other facilities of our resorts and the resorts and locations we visit.
Safety violations by Staff or SVAM Team members may result in appropriate consequences ranging from reprimands, suspensions and up to and including dismissal from the program.
Mountain Safety Policies: All SVAM Team members, parents, and coaches should familiarize themselves with and are responsible for knowing and following SVAM’s Mountain Safety Polices, available at: https://squawalpine.com/skiing-riding/mountains/mountain-safety-policies/
Injury and Concussion Policy
SVAM considers concussions or suspected concussions a type of potentially traumatic brain injury and treats them seriously. It is recommended that every two years, athletes 14 and older should take the ImPACT test to establish a baseline for the year. SVAM will follow the legal requirements of the State of California and U.S. Ski and Snowboard regarding return to training. In the event of a suspected concussion or injury, SVAM may require a Doctor’s release for return to training or competition.
It is of critical importance that the SVAM Team be fully authorized in its sole discretion to provide and obtain pre hospital medical treatment to Team members who are injured, within the scope of their training, and to arrange for transfer of injured SVAM Team members to hospital or other care whether while at the SVAM resort or traveling. A form providing for such authorization is attached hereto as Attachment A and must also be fully filled out and signed by a parent(s) unless the athlete is over 18 years in order for the child(ren) to be allowed to participate in the SVAM Team program. Please note: A separate form is required to be completed for each minor child participating in the program.
Riding Lifts Code of Conduct
In order to provide the safest possible experience, we will rely on the joint efforts of Team staff, SVAM employees, and parents, as well as individual athlete’s knowledge and responsibility. Every SVAM Team member must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride, and unload the chairlift safely. The Team will always adhere to SVAM chairlift safety policies, including the Ride With Me and Kid’s On Lifts – U51” Programs. SVAM chairlift safety policies may change periodically and can be found here: https://squawalpine.com/skiing-riding/mountains/mountain-safety-policies/
Ride with Me - Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Ski Teams and Ski School athletes under 51” will be outfitted with a Kinderlift vest and required to ride with an appropriate companion, when practicable.
Best Practices - Communicating Kids on Lifts – U51” Program:
- Behave, be aware, and be respectful of others when you are in line, loading the chair, riding the chair, and unloading the chair.
- When you are loading the chair, move promptly from the WAIT HERE board to the LOAD HERE board when the chair in front of you passes. Keep your skis or board straight.
- Ask the Lift Operator for instructions or to SLOW the lift if you need help
- Skis/Board Straight – When loading, a child’s skis/board must be straight-ahead in-line with the direction of the chair. When skis/board are at an angle the edge of the ski/board can catch the snow and pull the child off the seat.
- Seat Positioning – Load small children next to the armrest or next to an appropriate companion.
- Sit Back - Child’s back must be on the back of the chair. No arching of the back. Children must not lean on the bar. Remind children to scoot back until their back is against the seatback.
- Lower Bar – Signs may be posted a few towers from the lower terminal, encouraging passengers to lower the bar.
- “Hold on tight” – The child should either hold the armrest if seated on the outside or hold the back of the seat if seated in a middle position.
- “Look Forward” - The child must always face forward.
- “Don’t Fool Around” – Children on the lift must behave. Zero tolerance for horseplay on the chairlifts
- “Do Not Lean on Bar” - The child must keep their back on the back of the seat.
- “Keep Bar Down” – The restraint bar should be down and should remain down after leaving the loading area.
- “Raise Bar” – It is imperative that the safety bar is not raised until the chair is even with the Green “Raise Bar” sign or last tower directly before the unloading area. After the safety bar has been raised, and directly before the “unloading ramp”, ask the children to move forward on the chair and prepare to unload.
Collision Safety – Defensive Skiing and Riding
Collision safety education and preventative measures are critical to the well-being of everyone on the mountain. The SVAM Team will always adhere to SVAM collision safety policies, including the Share the Mountain and the NSAA's #RideAnotherDay Collision Mitigation Campaign. Additional information may be found at: https://squawalpine.com/skiing-riding/mountains/mountain-safety-policies/
SVAM Team members participating in a supervised SVAM program who violate the Chairlift Safety Code of Conduct, collision safety violations, or other safety measures, will be appropriately reprimanded up to and including termination from our program.
SUPERVISION OF MINORS AND AGES 5 AND UNDER

Team Travel is a privilege. Each athlete recognizes that he/she represents the SVAM Team while engaged in Team Travel or otherwise traveling with the SVAM Team. As a consequence, each athlete commits to conduct themselves with a courteous attitude and behavior at all times. If any athlete believes any other individual treats him/her in an unfair or inappropriate manner, such athlete is to immediately remove himself/herself from the situation without confrontation and, immediately, bring the situation to the attention of the attending SVAM Team coaches and/or chaperones. Each athlete is expected and required to pick up after herself/himself, maintain his/her equipment in an orderly fashion, and be timely, prompt, and prepared for any SVAM Team activity. Each parent adopts, supports, and agrees with these expectations of athletes engaged in Team Travel or otherwise traveling with the SVAM Team.
The traveling privilege is revocable at the discretion of the Program Director or senior attending SVAM Team coach. The expenses and arrangements (including the normal costs of the remainder of the trip) of any departing athlete from a Team Travel event whose privilege has been revoked shall be the sole and exclusive responsibility of the departing athlete’s parents. Reinstatement of the privilege will be at the sole discretion of the SVAM Team's Program Director.
Travel Supervision Responsibilities
Certain trips may be designated as “Team Travel”
- Athletes will be supervised by Team employees while on Team Travel projects, except when explicit permission is granted by SVAM Team staff to participate in unsupervised activities. This includes travel time to and from the event and, at all times, during the event.
- It is acknowledged that supervision does not extend to all activities, including but not limited to lunch breaks and other daily activities outside of the reasonable scope of SVAM Team staff’s normal job responsibilities.
Other trips will be designated as “Individual Travel”

Team Travel Administration and Athlete Payment
For Team Travel events with a published fixed fee, such as a Projects, Competitions, and/or Camps, upon request, parents must remit full payment or deposits prior to the event.
For Team Travel events without a published fixed fee, the following rules and policies apply:
- The travel costs for our coaching staff will be billed to all participating athletes; covering their equal share of the coaches’ expenses (food, lodging, and other expense) plus those expenses specific to their travel.
- The SVAM Team will attempt to provide a reasonable cost estimate before the event. Parents of attending athletes recognize this is only an estimate and the final cost may vary considerably. A deposit and/or credit card on file may be required prior to departure.
- Parents agree to pay in full any invoice within 14 days of receipt. Failure to timely pay any invoices for previous Team Travel events may result in revocation of the athlete’s privilege to participate in future Team Travel events at the discretion of the SVAM Team’s Program Director.

The SVAM Team’s fixed expenses typically include but are not limited to: transporting equipment to the event, lane space expenses, lift tickets, vehicle rentals or per mile vehicle fee if personal vehicles are used, and athlete lodging reserved by the SVAM Team.
- The total expense of athlete lodging reserved by the SVAM Team will be divided equally among the participating athletes, regardless of the number of athletes to a room. The only time an individual athlete’s lodging expense can be reduced is if an athlete’s non-attendance reduces athletes’ lodging expenses.
- Athletes who commit to a Team Travel event without a published fixed fee and who fail to attend the event without pre-event cancellation or only partially attend the event (regardless of reason) will be invoiced for their share of SVAM Team’s fixed expenses, subject only to reduction by the savings in lodging resulting from non-attendance.
- Athletes who commit to a Team Travel event without a published fixed fee who travel separately at their own expense to the event will participate equally in the SVAM Team’s fixed expenses, with a reduction for the athlete’s own travel expenses. If the athlete stays separately at his/her own expense and not with the SVAM Team, the athlete will not be invoiced for the SVAM Team’s athlete lodging expense. The athlete must communicate in writing (which may be via email) at least 14 days prior to Team Travel if they will not be staying with the SVAM Team and have made individual arrangements.
