Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Ski Team and the SAF are very proud to be recognized by USSA as one of the top teams in the country with this distinction.   Thank you to all our members for your continued support of our athletes, teams, and community.

A prolific club over the years with record participation, the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Ski Team wrapped up the USSA certification process in the fall of 2014. This involved a continued effort with leadership from both the corporation, Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, Inc. and the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Foundation (SAF). The SAF and the partnership between the Foundation and the resorts’ programs were determined to be vital to the continued success of the teams and the communities they represent.

The USSA certification process not only recognizes club excellence, but also gives a clear roadmap for all clubs to become stronger organizations. The process to achieve podium level certification, especially Gold, is not easy. Clubs and their supporting Foundations that reach this goal set a great example for other Clubs and are leading the charge for club improvement nationally.
