Downhill Ski Lessons Series B - 2024

Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding Course

Downhill Ski Lessons Series B

Downhill ski lesson series for all ages and all abilities, from folks who have never been on skis to intermediate and advanced skiers wanting to hone their off-piste skills.

Downhill Ski Series

Improve your downhill ski skills without long lift lines in a very small and friendly group setting.  

Our instructors can coach you from the basics of downhill skiing through challenging slopes and snow conditions.   Meany specializes in helping people of all ages with their first time on skis, and in introducing confident groomer-cruisers to the joys of steeps, trees and powder.

Our two multi-week lesson series consist of four two-hour lessons, meeting on alternate Saturdays during the season that the lodge is open, except 2/17 (President's Day weekend) and 3/9 (Carnival).  

The four Series B dates are 1/13, 1/27, 2/10, and 2/24. 

If you can't make one of these dates, a make-up lesson can be arranged from the other series.

These lessons are add-ons that require you to also register for day-use or an overnight at Meany Lodge for the same days as your lessons.  Please see the Meany Lodge Calendar to register for day-use or an overnight.

Course Requirements

This course has no scheduled activities.

Required Equipment

Downhill skis, ski boots, poles.   Please bring your own or rent equipment in town - the Snow Sports Director ( can help answer your questions.  The Mountaineers does not provide you with equipment, and we do not have equipment to rent at the Lodge.  

Helmets are strongly recommended.

Clothing and Gloves:  Be prepared to spend the day outside.  The rope tow can be hard on clothing, so leave the good ski coat at home and wear an old jacket.  It also wears out gloves and mitts quickly, so we recommend wearing leather work gloves over glove liners.  Welding gloves also work well.  Meany also has several styles of leather over-mitt protectors available for sale.   Most people stay plenty warm while skiing.  We recommend bringing a separate pair of warm mitts to wear while you are not skiing.
