WVA Updates
Covid-19 Protocols Updates
Mask Wearing

All of the students and staff over the first 2 weeks have been wearing masks when on campus and in classes. After evaluating we have decided to continue mask wearing as much as possible. This preventative measure will help mitigate the risk of Covid-19, but will also help slow the spread of common colds and flus.
Outside Travel on Weekends

Travel outside of Waterville Valley will continue to be limited. We are still comfortable with parents coming to get their kids for the weekend as long as the plan is for the family to remain in the area – the “greater Waterville Valley area,” which includes Lincoln, Plymouth, Campton, Thornton, Holderness, and of course WV itself. However, when your child is off campus, please abide by the same restrictions and guidance as your child would have on campus: this means no parties, no big gatherings or events, and limited travel/time in public. 

This weekend's activity will be Apple Picking at Windy Ridge Orchard!
Daily Health Screening

As a part of our ongoing commitment to keeping everyone in our community safe we have implemented a daily health screening process. This week we released a digital version to streamline the process that form can be found here in the button below. All students, staff, and guest are expected to fill this out before coming to campus.
Cut Proof Layers

Alpine skiing has seen an increase in cut injuries in recent years and as a result WVA is now recommending that all alpine academy athletes have cut proof layers/clothing for the 20-21 season. Please reach out to your coaches for specific requirements. We are also committed to continuing to educate athletes and coaches on "Stop the Bleed" procedures.
USSS/ NHARA/ FIS Licences

Please have all of your licenses up to date! In order for athletes to participate in athletics they need to be registered with USSS. This will become particularly important when travel and competition starts. If you have not done your licenses renewal by next week we may have to pull you from training.

Athletes 18+ are required to have Avalanche Training, Safe Sport, and a background check completed as well. If you have questions please reach out.
The folder above will be updates through out the year with updated photos from events, competing, trips, and more! Check back often to see the latest!
