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.


Welch Carvers 

Carvers has become our signature ski instruction program for kids at Welch Village.  This 7-week progressive program is designed to offer the highest level of ski instruction for kids of all ability levels. Whether your child has recently started skiing or would like to ski more challenging terrain with more confidence.  Carver coaches will fulfill your family's goals and motivations with the PMTS Direct Parallel teaching system.  Coaches will also provide weekly feedback to parents on the skiing progress of their son/daughter. There is a low instructor to student ratio in this program to ensure a high level of personal feedback and coaching .

Students must be able to ride the chairlift unassisted and already be able to ski green runs in order to register for this program.   Never-ever beginner skiers should consider the weekend boot camp program. Students will be grouped by age & experience during the first two weeks of the program and then remain with the same group & coaches throughout the season.
