U.S. Ski & Snowboard and the SafeSport Code prohibits the following conduct:

  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Physical Misconduct
  • Emotional Misconduct
  • Bullying, Threats, and Harassment (including sexual harassment)
  • Hazing
  • Willfully Tolerating Misconduct

Reporting of Inappropriate Behavior

Every U.S. Ski & Snowboard member must report suspected violations of the SafeSport Code. If you suspect that an athlete is experiencing misconduct of a sexual nature, call the SafeSport hotline (and local child protection authorities if the athlete is a minor) and report it to the experts who have the skills to investigate the matter.  If you have a doubt on whether conduct is occurring, please err on the side of reporting.  Conduct which does not involve sexualized conduct but which may violate one of the six categories of prohibited conduct may be reported to
