Learn to Ski with SCWDC

SCWDC has its own Ski School, with 100% professionally certified ski and board instructors.  Our Ski Performance Enhancement (SPE) trips offer expert instruction for beginners through experts. ages 13 and up.


The SCWDC Ski School is a National Member of the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) with 100% of its instructors certified by either PSIA or the American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI). This percentage is much higher than you would find at ski resort ski schools. Several of our instructors have also graduated from the PSIA National Academy,  PSIA-East Trainers Academy, and/or completed completed the requirements for Master Teacher certification.  Our instructors continue their education and training through PSIA/AASI events.

Currently the SCWDC Ski School is fully staffed, but openings may become available if instructors leave the school.  The criteria for becoming a member of the SCWDC Ski School is a minimum of a PSIA/AASI Level I certification.  Further information on the requirements for attaining the certification can be found at www.psia-e.org.   Due to the few number of SPE trips the SCWDC Ski School is not in a position to satisfy the requirements for attaining the certification.  Contact local ski areas if interested in pursuing certification.
