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®.
First Run Package
This is the best lesson option for beginner skiers. The First Run package includes access to our station-based beginner lesson where you will learn how to control your speed and make parallel ski turns, one-step at a time, and at your own pace. The First Run package is also a good choice for skiers who have taken a long break from skiing or for those who have not used modern-shaped skis. This lesson takes place in our lesson stations around our magic carpet conveyor lift and beginner area. If time allows, some students will use the beginner chairlift and beginner slope during the lesson. Students are able to learn at their own pace in the lesson stations. However, the lesson for this program should take about 2 hours to move through all the lesson stations.
The First Run station-based lessons are available 10am-2pm on most Saturdays, Sundays, and during Holiday Hours Days.
Advanced registration is required for a specific session starting time. Session start times are available at 10:15am, 11:15am, and 12:15pm. Space is limited for each session.All lessons are intended to be a 2-hour lesson.
