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.


Kids Weekend Boot Camp 

Your kids will learn to ski parallel in just one weekend - guaranteed!  This weekend lesson program includes an all day lesson each day 10:30 - 3pm as well as a lunch voucher.  When enrolling kids in this program, you will have two options.  The Green Camp is designed for kids who are brand new to skiing or have skied just a couple of times before.  The Blue Camp is designed for more intermediate skiers who would like to remove the snow plow from their skiing and/or gain more confidence on steeper terrain. Space is limited in this program.  Available for kids age 6-12 ONLY.
