Welch Village is the only licensed PMTS Direct Parallel®ski school in the country.  PMTS Direct Parallel® is unique -it's a complete modern teaching system that does not use the wedge or "snow plow."  All movements taught in our system utilize modern ski design and create and maintain balance.   The system teaches expert skiing movements to all ability levels using Student Centered Ski Instruction™ which uses a student's needs and motivations to design a learning environment.  All of our ski instruction programs use PMTS Direct Parallel®.
