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

Our instructors can coach you from your first time on skis through the basics of downhill skiing up through skiing challenging slopes and snow conditions.  We do not have a snowboard instructor in 2022.

This lesson is an add-on that requires you are already registered for day-use or an overnight at Meany Lodge for the same day as your lesson.  Please see the Meany Lodge Calendar to register for day-use or an overnight.

Be ready to spend the day outside, with appropriate layers of clothing.

Ski Lessons notes

We will meet at 10 am and 2 pm at the tow hut. We may ask you to do a practice bit of skiing down the lower part of the hill, so that we can assign you to the appropriate class and instructor.

Meany specializes in helping people of all ages with their first time on skis!  Please note that due to COVID vaccination requirements, guests under 5 cannot stay in the Lodge.

No drop-in classes available this year.

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Downhill skis, ski boots, poles.   Please bring your own or rent equipment in town - the Snow Sports Director (jen@simerson.net) 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.

Handwear: The rope tow 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.
