Thank YOU for YOUR contributions to our community!

The time and energy that you put into every practice, team event and competition is foundational to the development of world class athletes as well as a love for snow sports in the greater community.  We understand that a successful day on the mountain starts with a coach dedicated to ensuring the safety of our athletes, finding the best snow to ride and educating and supporting our athletes. At PTCF, we strive to ensure that YOU are receiving the support needed to achieve these objectives and advance your career.  But we hope your interest in PTCF doesn’t stop there!  There are countless ways both large and small for you to get involved outside of your role as a coach.

Coach Support

Navigating a day on the hill can be hard, especially when managing a group of athletes with different needs. We are here to help! In addition to the educational opportunities provided by Palisades Tahoe, we sponsor an annual speaker series to help provide supplemental education in areas such as sports psychology and health & wellness. Please explore our events calendar to learn more about upcoming speakers. Interested in learning more about something, but don’t see an event that addresses this topic? Have an idea for another type of support that you aren’t currently receiving? Send us a suggestion for future events or other areas of support.

Athlete Support

As you may already know, our athlete scholarship application includes a coach recommendation form.  Thank you to all of the coaches who spend the time preparing recommendations, often for many different athletes.  The feedback that we receive from you is critical to our evaluation of each application and the more detail you are able to provide helps us differentiate our candidates.


Let’s face it – after spending a season with the same group of athletes, it’s not easy to meet the families of your athletes or even spend time getting to know other coaches who focus on a different discipline. PTCF strives to create connection between coaches, athletes and families through our regular social events and “friendraisers.”


Coaches, we need you! As a non-profit organization comprised entirely of volunteers, we can’t do it without the support of the community.  There are plenty of opportunities to join a committee, volunteer for an event, or get involved in other meaningful ways.


We are incredibly proud of all of the Team Palisades Tahoe athletes and coaches and want to celebrate you! If you have pictures you want us to share, let us know by following and tagging us on Instagram (@palisades_tahoe_cf)  or emailing us at
