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 or skiers age 13 and older.  The First Run package includes a small group 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.  If you can already make turns and control your speed on mostly green runs, this is also a good lesson program for you. 

This lesson takes place on flat ground and around our magic carpet conveyor lift and beginner area which uses a very easy slope with plenty of space.  If time allows, some students will use the beginner chairlift and beginner slope during the lesson.  There is a 6 student maximum per instructor in this lesson program. However, we do our best to keep lesson groups closer to a max of 4 if staffing allows. 

Online registration is the only option for this lesson program. Space is limited.

Carving Clinics

Do you feel stuck skiing only green runs?  Would you like more confidence & enjoyment on intermediate slopes?  This is the program for you! 

Our Carving Clinics are aimed directly at showing you how to make confident and balanced parallel ski turns.  Our expert coaches will use the student-directed, PMTS teaching system to unlock new movements in your skiing and put you on the path to enjoy more difficult terrain with confidence. This is a great lesson program for season pass holders who would like to ski more advanced terrain at Welch Village or get mountain-ready for a ski trip out west. 

This lesson program is intended for intermediate to more advanced level skiers ages 13 and older. This is also the best lesson option for skiers who learned how to ski using the traditional "wedge" or "slow plow" and would like to learn how to ski with their skis parallel. There is a 6 student maximum per instructor in this lesson program. However, we do our best to keep lesson groups closer to a max of 4 if staffing allows.
