For the health and safety of our Members, guests, staff and community, and in accordance with the State of Vermont Stay Safe policies, we have made some adjustments in how the Ski School will operate during Covid-19 in order to provide you with a safe and enjoyable experience.

Priority access to the Ski School will be given to Members of The Quechee Club, family guests of club Members, and season pass holders. Additional capacity will be announced based on availability.

The Ski School reserves the right to cancel lessons for any reason, including but not limited to changes in the State of Vermont's operating guidance, instructor availability, or extreme weather.





Please call (802) 295-3929 to sign up. If you reach voicemail, please leave a message with your name and a phone number where we can return your call late afternoon or early evening. 

For the safety of everyone, we ask that you review the State of Vermont quarantine requirements carefully and are prepared to honor those requirements before calling for a lesson. Prior to each weekend visit or before each vacation period, you must submit the Pre-Visit Vermont Covid Certification. This attestation must be on file in order to participate in Ski School.

In addition, each participant must have a liability waiver on file for the season, which needs to be submitted prior to the first lesson. Participant's date of birth is a required field. Misrepresenting the child’s age will result in termination of the lesson which will be charged in full. 


SEASON PASS HOLDERS - A credit card will be used to hold your reservation, and will be charged the day of the lesson.

MEMBERS - Please provide your Member ID# for lesson reservation and payment. 

Cancellation is required by noon the day before a lesson.

If the participant is sick or has symptoms, the Ski School will not charge for the lesson as long as we are notified by 7:15am the day of the lesson. Cancellations should be called in to (802) 295-3929.

No-shows will be charged in full. Anyone who cancels due to symptoms should not be on the hill the day of the canceled the lesson.
Those choosing to ski on a day where symptoms have been reported will be charged in full for the lesson that day and will be unable to make further reservations for the remainder of the season.


Masks are required during all group lessons, and any time social distancing of 6 feet cannot be observed.

We recognize that parents may need to take on a greater role with the instruction of their children this year. We could provide a semi-private lesson to a child and adult where the adult would like to be involved in the instruction of the child. This choice should be made carefully since younger children often have difficulty taking direction from the instructor when the parent is present.
