Chairlift Safety Presented by Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows



This season all athletes ages nine and under will be supervised at lunch by their coach. Given the growth of the team and  the space restrictions the entire Mezzanine will be needed for athletes and coaches only from 11:00am-1:00pm. If you have made plans to have lunch with your athlete please let the coach know so you can take them down to main lodge or onto the Sundeck. We appreciate your understanding.

Skiing and snowboarding are sports that people of all ages can enjoy. In order to participate, skiers and riders, including children, commonly ride chairlifts to access the slopes. Sometimes children ride chairlifts
with adults, instructors and coaches. In certain circumstances, children may ride lifts without adults, instructors or coaches. Furthermore, while there may be restraining bars on chairlifts, lowering the bars does not guarantee the safety of the passengers.

“Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.” 
We train our lift operators and instructors, as necessary to verbally remind children to
We encourage parents to re-enforce this message with their children.
“Please be advised that your child may be riding lifts alone, with other children, or with adults while enrolled in group lessons, private lessons, or Teams. Please advise a Supervisor or Head Coach if you do not wish for your child to ride a chair lift.”
