Q: When can I pick up my athlete’s Team Jacket?
A: An announcement will be sent in late November providing dates and times for Team Jacket pickup.

Q: Is it Ok if my athlete cannot make all program sessions?
A: Our programs are like a season pass, come as often as you can, but it is OK if you cannot make every session.  We encourage consistent attendance so athletes do not fall behind and need to be moved to another team.

Q: What Team will my athlete be on?
A: All athletes are assessed on the first day of the program and placed in the most appropriate group based on skiing ability and age. At times team placement may only be possible based on skiing ability.

Q: Do you make Team changes?
A: Sometimes it will be necessary to move athletes to a different Team to enhance their experience.

Q: When and where will my athlete eat lunch?
A: All athletes will eat lunch starting at 10:30 am to avoid the lunch rush.  Coaches and their Teams are assigned a lodge to eat lunch. Check with your coach to see which lodge your athlete is assigned to eat.

Q: What can my athlete eat for lunch?
A: We offer a very wide variety of lunch choices at any of our lodges, which should meet every athlete’s taste and need. Lunch also includes a fountain drink of choice, hot chocolate or water.

Q: Are home lunches Ok?
A: No. At this time home lunches are not allowed.

Q: My athlete is new to skiing; can they join one of the Ski Teams?
A: No. Each program has a minimum ability requirement. Please read the program descriptions for details. Devo+ is by recommendation only.

Q: My athlete is new to the team and has experience, but does not have a recommendation.  How can I get a recommendation?
A: Contact rocky@snowbasinskiteam.org to arrange an evaluation.

Q: What if I still have questions?
A: Prior to the season, please contact Rocky at rocky@snowbasinskiteam.org. During the season, you will be assigned a Team Coach, who can answer your questions.
