Alpine Club of the Year

2013 Alpine Club of the Year - Squaw Valley Ski Team


The Squaw Valley Ski Team wrapped up a year marked by tremendous growth, athletic success and excellence in event production. As one of the largest youth programs in the country, if not the largest, over 33% of its USSA members were new USSA members this year, a signal of movement through its development programs. At its top levels, Squaw Valley had eight skiers qualify for the U.S. Alpine Championships, not counting its named U.S. Ski Team members. At the U18 National Championships, Squaw Valley skiers claimed 15 front page finishes, more than any other club. Eight top tens at the Western U16 Championships and an impressive 15 top fives at the Far West U14 Championships show the depth of talent in the program.

In addition, the Squaw Valley Ski Team helped host the very successful U.S. Alpine Championships. Under the leadership of Todd Kelly the program this year joined with the neighboring Alpine Meadows Race Team to combine resources and enhance opportunity for a larger group of skiers as they move through the pipeline. Veteran coaches such as last year's domestic coach of the year Konrad Rickenbach direct high level training opportunities, including more focus on year-round conditioning.
