All ski instruction and race coaching at Welch Village uses the Primary Movements Teaching System(PMTS)®. Welch Village is the Midwest Center for PMTS and the only licensed PMTS Direct Parallel® ski resort in the country.
For beginners, this means learning expert ski movements on their first day. Our PMTS trained instructors will never teach you something that you will have to unlearn later like the wedge or snowplow. Instead you will receive a logical system of coaching which promotes balance and confidence.
In our race programs, PMTS enables our race coaches to teach the same movements that world cup racers use. Our PMTS certified Skier Alignment Center offers alignment services including custom footbeds, boot canting and plating, and indoor as well as on-snow assessments.
We also offer All-Mountain Ski Camps, similar to those offered by Harb Ski Systems in both Colorado and Austria. The 2016/17 Ski Camps are listed below, space is limited.

2016/2017 PMTS Ski Camps
Green Camp This 3-day camp is designed for novice to low-intermediate skiers who are looking to improve their technique, gain better control, and work towards more difficult terrain. The camp will include 3 hours of on-snow lessons per day and will also include plenty of feedback, time to practice, and video analysis.
Short Turn Camp A good, short-radius turn is required to ski the entire mountain. Whether you aspire to ski steeps, moguls, powder, or ice, we will help you develop a short turn to ski all conditions with more confidence and control.
Women's Only Camp (*NEW* ) A 2-day camp designed for women skiers who are looking to improve their technique, gain better control, and ski more of the mountain. This camp is divided into two groups based on ability. The green camp is for more of the novice to low-intermediate skiers. Blue Camp is designed for women who are already comfortable on green terrain and would like to learn carving and/or better speed control and confidence on more difficult terrain and variable snow conditions. A great deal of personal feedback and video analysis is included.
Blue/Dark Blue Camp This 3-day weekend ski camp is designed for intermediate to advanced level skiers who would like to develop better control and balance in their skiing. Most of the camp is spent on groomed terrain. However, some of the camp can be spent on moguls and steeps depending on your motivations. If you would like to ski mountain terrain with more confidence, this is the camp for you.
