Ski Quechee is one of the best ski areas to learn at! Perfect for little ones or for adults looking to try out a new sport. The Quechee Ski School is a privately-operated business contracted by Quechee Lakes Landowner’s Association with exclusive rights to teach skiing at the Quechee Ski Hill. Located in the Base Lodge, the Ski School offers group and private lessons for all skills and ages 3 and up.

The Ski School is excited to provide lessons for the upcoming 2022/23 ski season. We are taking multiple precautions to provide a safe and enjoyable lesson experience, and will continue with some modified safety protocols. Priority access to the Ski School will be given to Members of The Quechee Club, then to Family Guests of club Members, then season pass holders. Additional capacity may be released based on availability.


This season we expect to see a larger volume of lesson requests and lessons will be limited. The Ski School reserves the right to cancel lessons for any reason, including but not limited to changes in the State of Vermont's operation guidance, instructor availability or extreme weather.

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.
