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 2017/18 Ski Camps are listed below, space is limited. Registration for these camps will be available sometime in August. If you would like to reserve your place in one of these camps, please email peter@welchvillage.com.
