SSCV Clubhouse Drop off and Pick up Procedures-2015-2016

In order to make the drop off and pick up process as safe, efficient and convenient as possible, SSCV has adopted the following procedures for drop off and pick up of athletes. Also note that the Town of Vail and Vail Resorts Base Operations expect SSCV to manage congestion and delays on Vail Valley Drive so we also ask for your cooperation in minimizing our impact on the traffic flow.

We ask that you take note of procedures for drop off and pick up on
HIGH IMPACT DAYS compared to NON HIGH IMPACT DAYS. HIGH IMPACT DAYS are weekends and holidays.


·SSCV Clubhouse driveway to be used only for drop off and pick up, with a maximum stay of 5 minutes. Parking during high impact days is not available.Unauthorized vehicles left unattended may be booted, relocated and/or a fine imposed.

·On high impact days program start and ending times will be staggered to allow a consistent flow of traffic through the Clubhouse driveway.

·SSCV staff will be on site directing the traffic flow and assisting you with loading or unloading your vehicle on high impact days.

·Entering Vail Valley Drive from the West. Note that on high impact days traffic approaching from the West on Vail Valley Drive can be quite congested. If possible, we strongly encourage members to approach the SSCV Clubhouse from the East. Using the East Entrance can result in a more efficient drop off or pick up.

· Entering Vail Valley Drive from the East. Please drive to the golf course bridge, turn south and proceed to the club via Vail Valley Drive going west. We will have traffic directors that will make sure you have no issue turning left into the clubhouse parking lot.  We also ask that you exit the parking lot and follow Vail Valley Drive back east after you have dropped off or picked up your children. Please be sure to obey the speed limits through the neighborhood.

1. Enter Vail Valley Dr. from the West or East (Golf Course).
2. Enter the Clubhouse using the West entrance.
3. Follow the direction of the staff wearing orange vests.
4. Pull as far forward as possible.
5. Staff will be available to help unload athletes and gear quickly.
6. Once athletes are unloaded use the East exit back onto Vail Valley Dr.
7. Turn right, East, onto Vail Valley Drive (if possible). Otherwise exit to the West.
8. Drive safely.

1. Enter Vail Valley Dr. from the West or East (Golf Course).
2. Enter the Clubhouse using the West entrance.
3. Follow the direction of the staff wearing orange vests.
4. Pull as far forward as possible.
5. Remain with your vehicle.
6. Staff/coaches will be present with athletes and assist in loading vehicle.
7. Once athletes are loaded use the East exit back onto Vail Valley Dr.
8. Turn right, East, onto Vail Valley Drive (if possible). Otherwise exit to the West.
9. Drive safely.

Your assistance with these last few details will help speed your drop off and pick up at the clubhouse every day. Following the procedures also places fewer cars in the traffic jam west of the clubhouse and will allow SSCV to contribute significantly to solving the congestion issues along Vail Valley Drive.

NON- HIGH IMPACT DAYS: weekdays (and non-holidays)

We ask that you follow the same general procedures for drop off and pick up on NON-HIGH IMPACT days, but we will have limited parking space to conduct club business (tune shop, coaches meeting, etc.). Please pull your vehicle as far forward as possible and park either on the left or right side. Also in every case, please leave the keys to your vehicle in the ignition so that SSCV personnel may move the vehicle as needed based on traffic demand.


· Dropping off at the Gold Peak Lodge or Children’s Center is NEVER an option. Using those areas for pick up and drop off is not allowed by Vail Resorts, and your vehicle could be subject to a traffic ticket or being towed.

· One exception is too many. Daily many cars are left in the drop off/ pick up zone while parent’s “run inside real quick”. Please note the following suggestions to make necessary trips inside.

· Are you aware that parking at the Town of Vail structures is free for the first two hours? Drop off the kids, park in a Town of Vail parking area and return to the clubhouse on foot.

· SSCV encourages you to conduct other business between 9:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Please be mindful that the SSCV lot remains a loading and unloading zone all day long through the winter and keep your visits as short as possible.

·To manage drop off and pick up more effectively, or if you need to conduct business on high impact mornings/afternoons.  You may consider the two adult method where one parent hops out while the other exits the parking lot and then returns a few minutes later to pick the first adult up.

SSCV’s “Expect More” Partnership with Vail Resorts

At SSCV we strive to be a consistently positive partner with Vail Resorts, which provides unparalleled support for our programs.  With the kick-off of the season we wanted to share with new SSCV families and staff and recap for returning families and staff SSCV’s “Expect More” initiative, an evolution made possible via the support of SSCV parents, athletes and staff.  We ask for your support in continuing to strengthen SSCV’s partnership with Vail Resorts by making sure SSCV athletes and staff are the very best they can be each and every day in the coming season.

By way of background, although our staff and athletes generally conduct themselves in a respectful and appropriate manner on the mountain, we continue to seek out opportunities to make sure everyone is at their very best every day whether they are on Vail Mountain or visiting another mountain, taking an increasingly proactive approach to prevent issues from arising.

SSCV’s “Expect More” initiative is a call to action for everyone at the club, staff and athletes alike, to strive towards exemplary, rather than simply acceptable, behavior and conduct on the mountain.  As part of the “Expect More” initiative, SSCV leaders including SSCV Executive Director Aldo Radamus, Human Performance Director John Cole, Operations Director CB Bechtel and General Manager Mike Trueblood spend time communicating with SSCV staff and athletes both off and on the hill.  SSCV has also established a consistent presence at Golden Peak and other venues on Vail Mountain to encourage exemplary behavior in slow zones, lift lines, key areas such as Mid Vail and on the chairlifts.

SSCV leaders spend time observing SSCV training groups, working to recognize outstanding performances and providing friendly reminders, when, for example an athlete might forget to place the comfort bar down on the chairlift.  We want to make sure to set the expectations at the start of this season, as was the case last season, that instances of not following the expectations could result in consequences such as lost training time.

The SSCV team has also worked hard to reach out to Vail Resorts personnel at the corporate level as well as from Ski Patrol and Mountain Safety as a part of this initiative. In keeping these communication lines open, a Vail Resorts representative presented to SSCV staff during full-time and part-time staff education sessions during the past month. This enabled SSCV to learn more about the challenges faced by Vail Resorts in general and Ski Patrol and Mountain Safety in particular, when the “Expect More” expectations are not met by our staff and athletes.

As we look to the start of the new season we are excited to continue partnering with SSCV parents, athletes, staff and the Vail Resorts team to assure that the “Expect More” initiative inspires everyone to be the very best they can be at all times.  We want everyone to achieve all of their goals for the season and avoid the need for SSCV to impose consequences on staff or athletes for non-compliance.

We ask that you please take a few minutes to remind your children in their role as ambassadors of Ski & Snowboard Club Vail of the importance of the following, not only at Vail Mountain, but at each and every mountain they visit:

  • Adhere to attentiveness and controlled speed, with the flow of traffic, in slow zones.
  • Respect lines and ropes in all areas of the mountain, including closures and boundaries, and in lift lines.
  • Place the comfort bar down on every lift ride.
  • Store skis, poles and boards in designated areas while in a lodge.

Thank you for your continued support!  Here’s to another great season at SSCV!

Press Release-Ski & Snowboard Club Vail Hosts First Event of USSA National Performance Series-November 21, 2015

Top U19 US Men Train and Compete Head-to-Head In Slalom at Golden Peak

Vail – Only a very few U19 men (ages 16-18) have been able to post results and improve FIS point rankings in the Alpine Nor-Am circuit, a vital stepping stone in the national pipeline for rising juniors aspiring to Europa Cup and World Cup competition. While there is an expectation that top U21 alpine racers (ages 18-20) will compete for Nor-Am titles and earn World Cup starts, it has become apparent that even top U19 men need more time along with more opportunities each season to develop both mentally and physically in order to successfully meet this impending expectation. Hence the United States Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA) U19 National Project Series (NPS) was born to provide an opportunity for U19 men to better prepare for what lies ahead.

Ski & Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV) hosted the first of the NPS three-part project on November 18-21 at Golden Peak with slalom training the first two days, a slalom National Junior Race and a slalom FIS race on November 20 and a second slalom National Junior Race on November 21. The NPS is intended to bring the nation’s best sixteen through eighteen-year-old men together on a more regular basis throughout the season in an educational environment for training and head-to-head competition working with USSA as well as club and academy coaches.

The National Performance Series gathers up to twenty qualified U19 men from each of the Eastern, Rocky/ Central and Western regions, as well as ten additional Juniors ranked by FIS points. Considering the twenty-competitor cap for the Rocky/Central Region with up to 10 additional spots nationwide, Ski & Snowboard Club Vail had an impressive total of 12 athletes qualify for the NPS project at Golden Peak:   River Radamus (1998-SSCV and US Ski Team D Team), Jack Keane (1998-SSCV and National Training Group), Tagert Mueller (1997), Logan Martin (1997), Kaison Lavicka (1998), Matthew Macaluso (1999), Bridger Gile (1999), Colby Lange (1999), Jacob Dilling (1999), Kyle Negomir (1998), Brendan Keane (1999) and Patrick Ottley (1999).

A number of additional young FIS racers from around the globe along with an additional group of invited U21 and Senior United States alpine racers participated in the races, making for a very exciting field for all involved. Unofficial results below. For a complete list of official results visit

SSCV Alpine Program Director Karen Ghent shared, “It was truly an honor to host USSA’s first ever National Performance Series project. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the four days at Golden Peak was the project’s intended mission and watching these young men race with intensity. It has further seasoned dozens of U19 racers across the country by providing a learning environment in addition to a race opportunity.”

The NPS will not only serve as a vehicle to season the country’s young racers. It will also provide FIS point scoring opportunities along with the possibility for the most elite of performers to qualify for either the US Ski Team D Team or the National Training Group. The Giant Slalom portion of the series will take place in Stowe, Vermont from January 4-7 and the Super G portion will take place in Mt. Bachelor, Oregon from April 10-12.

Ski & Snowboard Club Vail Alpine Program-November 24, 2015 Vail Daily weekly column by Aldo Radamus

When the “World comes to Vail” for early season training and racing someone needs to have the house in order daily for our alpine guests and Ski & Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV) athletes. Alpine Program Director and longtime SSCV staff member Karen Ghent and her committed coaches, together with Vail Resorts snow makers, groomers, patrol and lift crews, are among those out there day and night making this happen.

“Day in the Life”

It never ceases to amaze me, particularly during early season training, how our Alpine staff are up by 4:15 am each morning, commute to Golden Peak before sunrise and load the lifts before dawn to assure training venues are living up to Golden Peak’s world class reputation. What is even more inspirational is observing these same coaches’ excitement and professionalism. After several hours of demanding physical work they greet their athletes with excitement for the start of training. Post-training even more tasks await to prepare for the next day.

Working in collaboration with the alpine staff to assure continued excellence on the hill, are SSCV Director of Operations CB Bechtel, and on race days, SSCV Alpine Race Coordinator PJ Jenick, providing experienced leadership and support throughout the season.

Just as our early season training venues come to a close the SSCV Alpine staff and older athletes play a critical role at the Birds of Prey World Cup in Beaver Creek from late November through early December. There they log more early morning hours of venue preparation followed by race day course work while being exposed to the sport’s highest level of competition.

Rich History and National Accolades

Ski racing was critical to developing the international reputation enjoyed by Vail and the reason that Ski Club Vail, now Ski & Snowboard Club Vail was conceived 53 years ago. The club carries with it a rich history of producing US Ski Team members and NCAA collegiate athletes. More importantly, it has helped produce generations of successful adults who are applying the life lessons learned through the vehicle of competitive snowsports daily.

At a national level, the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) has recognized SSCV’s Alpine Program as the leader among more than 400 USSA clubs around the country, naming SSCV four times as the USSA Alpine Club of the Year since the award’s inception in 1999. Most recently SSCV was the first ever back to back winner in 2014 and 2015.

What Lies Ahead

SSCV will host many exciting alpine competitions this season, including the U16 Rocky/Central Region Championships for the top 14 and 15 year olds in the region, the NorAm Cup finals in slalom and giant slalom for the top US and Canadian racers competing just below the World Cup level, numerous age class and YSL races and the complimentary Steadman Clinic Vail Cup series for the youngest of local and visiting athletes. It is great to provide our athletes a home town venue and the opportunity to watch top level athletes from around the world.

Alpine Athletes Inspire

Alexandra Gonzalez is a first year full-time U14 athlete from Mexico in 7th grade at SSCV Academic Partner Vail Mountain School. Her commitment to improving the past off-season was impressive, putting in 21 days of training on snow with SSCV in April, May and June. After spending the rest of the summer in Mexico, Alexandra arrived back in Vail where she dove into her SSCV conditioning sessions with passion and a strong work ethic. SSCV runs a battery of fitness assessments at the start of fall conditioning and a second time just before athletes get back on snow. Alexandra’s 39% improvement in a test measuring aerobic fitness was by far the largest jump seen among her peer group, reflecting her commitment and hard work. Alexandra leads the culture SSCV promotes, skiing until last chair, putting in the extra effort and always being eager, attentive and hard working.

Tucker Thomas, a first year U16 alpine racer, is an 8th grader at SSCV Academic Partner Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy. New to the team, having moved here from Aspen this past summer, Tucker dove head first into all that being an SSCV athlete entails. Although being the “new kid” is not always easy, Tucker approached becoming part of this team with courage and humility. He attended nearly every dryland session this summer and fall even doing double strength training sessions on his own, being extremely committed to getting physically stronger in order to be the best skier he can be. Tucker has a positive impact on everyone he encounters, coaches and fellow athletes alike. Tucker appreciates and takes full advantage of all the resources available to him at SSCV, showing a level of maturity, commitment and individualism beyond his years.

It is a privilege to watch our alpine athletes grow as athletes and young men and women while exhibiting our core values of Character, Courage and Commitment.

Erin Beskid-Early Season Peak Performance Post

Dear SSCV Families,

As we begin the competitive season there is a sense of excitement and opportunity for SSCV athletes. Some may have trained all summer and are ready to hit the ground running. Others may be beginning their journey as an athlete, learning to train and also deepening their love for their sport. Many are somewhere in between and hungry to begin. What a wonderful place to pursue your passion at all levels. However as a parent this excitement is sometimes followed by worry for the physical, mental and emotional well being of your athlete/s. This is normal and comes out a place of care, concern and love. It might happen after the first competition, the first challenging training day or at the first sign that one is not meeting their goals or expectations. Below are some tips to handle the first big road block of the season:

1) Kids regulate off of us as adults: Keep your cool and be that consistent force demonstrating belief in them, their coaches and their season plans/goals.

2) Use it as an opportunity to start preparing for the big events now. Acknowledge how your athlete has handled big competitions in the past, and use that information to help them understand that with practice and preparation they can feel confident and ready for competitions of all levels. Acknowledging pressure or fear now can help athletes be prepared for those emotions when they may come later.

3) See the season and their progress as long term. There will be ups and downs but daily consistent effort toward improvement is the only proven way to success. A big factor here is enjoyment. When they enjoy a basic aspect of the sport like, speed, being in the air, or competing, then a daily present focus can come more naturally.

4) Building Skills- Help your athlete understand that skills take time to develop and old habits take time to change. If frustration comes out of not immediately feeling successful at a new level or when learning a new skill, help them focus on the improvement process and the small wins for that day.

Here’s to another great season!

Change of Plans – November 18, 2015

Bonjour Les Parents,

News Flash! We just made a HUGE swing in our plans. We are flying back to the States tomorrow, November 19th.   We arrive in Denver at 7pm-ish tomorrow night.  Coach Justin Holder is picking us up at DIA with a van and a trailer.   We will drive to VSSA and unload there. I am guessing we will arrive at 9.30pm at night.  We are ALL on the same overseas flight.  This new flight departs Geneva (GVA) and arrives in Newark, NJ (EWR). From there we take a flight to Denver… we are in two groups heading to Denver.  See below.

The main reason for our early departure from France is due to a huge snowstorm that is coming. It is going to be over all of the alps: France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria. Two meters of snow!  The resorts will be closed and we will not be able to train for several days. Also, it would be very hard to drive our cars in this snowstorm.  Therefore, we decided to leave instead of sit in our apartments and get #CabinFever

We accomplished some goals while here in France and we have our ski legs back. With snow finally arriving in Colorado and jumps just built at Breckenridge, it is a perfect time to come back and train on our home turf.   See you all soon!

United Airline


9.15a (GVA)—> 12.25p (EWR)




Milli, Sammy, E, Alli, John



Felix, Paula, Lennon, Broby


Connor —>going back to Cali!

We are packing now, cleaning our apartments, packing the vans. We will drive to Geneva airport early early morning

Make Lemonade – November 16, 2015


All is well here in France-land.  Since my last post, we have had a few days of high winds. Yesterday, we couldn’t go up to the glaciers. Instead, we motivated as a group and drove over to Val D’Isere.  This proved to be a worthwhile. The boys scoped out a spot before. So we loaded up the crew, the ski gear, my little avalanche shovel, a big shovel Sammy borrowed from a ski shop and off to jump town we went.  We drove through the switchbacks of a mountain road to the top of a scenic view with a church and lots of SNOW. There we all built a jump!   It was a cross between a road gap and a back country booted (with convenient roadside access, warm cars, and an audience of rubberneckers). Thanks to Paula and Allie for helping Spriggs and I build the jump.  The rest of the crew stepped the in-run and warmed-up on some fun natural features. Felix was our delivery service, transporting the crew back uphill.   Everyone had their roll and the mini booter session popped off!
Today, we were back on the glacier with yet another sunny day! However, we did meet some challenges with the havoc the wind wreaked overnight. Both venues were wind blown and hard.  However, much of the halfpipe crew and slope crew got work done.  Both Felix and Sammy were hammering down on their unnatural spins, which can be a very frustrating project. Kudos to both of them for pushing through!  The French team and I asked the Tignes mountain crew for more grooming work on the venues tonight. I hope to have an even better day tomorrow.

French Pizza Soirée – November 14, 2015


Things haven’t changed for us here in l’montages. We are still in a comfortable place away from Paris. We are lucky that everything is continuing on with our ski camp without a hitch.  Well, we had one hitch today. Tignes was closed due to high winds. This may have been a blessing. No one was ready on time to ski today. The bodies were sore and tired after 4 days on snow.  With our day off, we took both cars and went on adventures. The small car headed toward a private ski resort called Saint Foy Tarentaise.  There was no skiing available. Instead, there were some gorgeous views, touring, and picture taking.  The big car hit the road towards Val D’Isere and then ended up on a long dirt packed road through the mountains.
As for the pizza, We went out to dinner as a team.  And we all got PIZZA.  Except Allie.  C’est dommage!  Pizza doesn’t seem very French, until it is served to you on a personal plate, with delicate thin crust, a fork and knife, and these famous words are spoken to you, “Bon Appetite”.
Although we took today off snow, we have been accomplishing goals during our on snow time.

We are here in France – November 11, 2015

Bonjour Parents,
It was a long two days of travel before we arrived in the mountain village of Tignes, France.  We had a van full of rambunctious boys and a coach driving. Thankfully the van was an automatic to make for a smoother ride.  Since we had quite the luggage cluster, I went ahead and rented a “gear car” to haul it all.  I drove this car with Alli as my co-pilot. Sorry to Paula who got stuck in the van full of over amped Garçons.  We stopped at the famous town of Annecy on our way to the alps.
We arrived in Tignes several hours later, just before dark. Being able to see the tall mountains that surrounded the tiny village when we drove in was (and always is), a special moment.  It is the calm before the storm.
Once we deciphered the puzzle of unloading the car, door codes, building codes and French check in information (phew), we dropped our stuff and headed to dinner. We ate at a local restaurant called TexMex.  As you can tell from the name, it is not authentic French cuisine. Ha!  It is a pink and neon American style dinner with Mexican food.  Go figure.   It was good enough for our tired bodies and off to bed we went.
The next morning we headed to the mountain (via the ski train) to make our first turns. We did not get an early start as originally planned. Jet lag got ahold of a few of us and getting out of bed was a challenge.  Regardless, we ate our baguettes and chocolate croissants, then we skied for about 4 hours.  The view from the top of the Tram was epic and sunny. I think this was another moment of calm among the storm of emotions.
On the slopes, we headed straight for Zi Jump!  From the tram we could see some French athletes already hitting the jump so our crew was able to start seasoning the jump right away.  Sure, it would have been good to take a few more warm up laps, but the crew (led by Sammy) was too amped up with anticipation. They needed to hit the jump immediately!   Everything went smooth…yes they started with a straight air. And then it was game on!
Most everyone hiked the jump for hours in the gorgeous Euro sun and beautiful Alps backdrop.  There were no snowmobiles on our first day… but that’s okay. A little hiking does the jet lagged body good. Some athletes, Paula, Alli, Felix and Lennon did take ski laps on the Tram to warm up and check out the neighborhood. It was their first day skiing for the year.  Not a bad place to be – the French Alpes – for your first day of a new ski season.
The crew then took a break to eat their ham, poulet and fromage sandwiches. Next it was back down to our cozy Euro style apartments to sort out our food plan.  I decided for dinners that I needed to share the cooking responsibilities. I came up with a fun idea and everyone agreed it would work, plus add a little excitement to our nights.  Team Cooking!  With 10 people there are 5 teams of 2 and each team cooks every 5th night. Each team has a budget of $75Euro to shop for their ingredients and cook.  It has been two nights and everything has been all good so far.   Alli and Paula  made a delicious stew and pasta for night one. Night two: Broby and Milli made tacos. Tomorrow? Hmmm…. let’s see who steps up next.
Today, day 2 of skiing, the French Team arrived and we had a skidoo available to make quick laps back to the top of the jump.  Aaron Milligan really appreciated this. He felt the skidoo really helped him “stay in the zone”. He had never trained with a snowmobile and saw how it can be beneficial.  The halfpipe feature was completed during the night, but the airbag was just being set up. Therefore, the athletes sessioned the side of the quarter pipe for a fun warm-up day.
Tomorrow will be our third day on snow and the weather is forecasted to be perfect again!   We will have both venues open for slopestyle and halfpipe athletes.  And skidoos!  It should be a great day.
So far, we only have two downsides to this trip. One is the weak internet Wifi. However, some athletes are managing better than others and trying to get their homework completed. Some athletes aren’t making the same effort, yet.., Maybe they are still jet lagged.  Item two is a  #WorkInProgress
As mentioned, the Wifi (pronounced WEE FEE) is slow at times from all the traffic. I will try to post more video soon of all the athletes.  In the meantime, all the athletes have been posting Instagrams and Facebook videos or pictures. Check those out.
Bon nuit!
