Information for Coaches

Coaches’ Lift Tickets

Complimentary coaches passes are provided on a 4:1 athlete to coach ratio.  Coaches must hold a current USSS Coaching License. Coaches must register on for the PARA U14 State Championship event in order to secure a complimentary lift pass.

COACHES & VOLUNTEERS - Epic passes are accepted at 7 Springs.  For those that do not have an Epic pass, we will be able to provide free lift tickets for those required to be on the hill.  However, the mountain requires us to provide the names of these individuals 1 week prior to our event.  COACHES MUST REGISTER ON ADMINSKIRACING AND VOLUNTEERS MUST SIGNUP IN THE VOLUNTEER SIGNUP SHEET BY 8:00 AM ON THE MONDAY PRIOR TO THE EVENT TO RECEIVE A FREE LIFT TICKET.  Anyone who signs up after this date will be responsible to purchase their own ticket.

IMPORTANT FOR ALL:  Vail is using RFID readers and scanning passes every run.  Tickets must be on the individual in order to ride the lift.  Tickets need not be visible, but if you do not have your ticket on your person, you will not be allowed to ride the lift.  Racers in speed suits claiming “it’s in my jacket at the top” will not be allowed to ride the lift.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Charles Donnellan (
