A New Way to Learn How to Ski?

Learn to ski at Jiminy Peak
Terrain Based Instruction
Terrain-based instruction recruits the slope itself as a teacher.

There never has been a truly easy way to learn how to ski—there just are too many moving parts, both gear and human. And that’s part of the sweet satisfaction of becoming an expert rider: It takes a bunch of time and hard work. But there’s an innovative new terrain-focused instruction method catching on at resorts nationwide that strives to shorten the skiing learning curve.

Happy Campers

Camp Keystone aims to introduce the youngest skiers to the sport sans tears and tantrums.

Parents often worry about the ski school drop-off. Will there be pouting, crying, clinging? Puhleeeze. Send them to Camp Keystone. They won’t be able to get away from you fast enough.

Maybe it’s the mini snowmobile in the registration area, or the grooming machine a few feet away that acts as a defacto playground, with a half-dozen snowbooted groms scampering around the cockpit. Maybe the instructors stash Skittles and Gummi Bears in their pockets and apply liberally. Either way, drop-off worries will be a thing of the past.
