Hermon Mountain Ski School

Group Lessons

Our Walk-In group lessons are for beginners only.  There may be both adults and children, and the group may range in size from 1 to 10.  The lesson will begin in front of the lodge at the specified "lesson time." The students will be greeted and introduced to the Instructor at this time.  The class will last up to 1 hour and 30 minutes, parents/guardians are asked to meet the students in front of the Lodge at the end of the lesson.  First, all students will be introduced to their equipment (i.e. how to put skis on and how to take them off.) The Instructor will then teach the student about skiing, using many different activities designed to familiarize the student with the activity.  The goal in a Beginner lesson is to teach the student to walk in skis, glide down the hill using a wedge shape, turn, and stop.  These are goals only; each student progresses at different rates, there is no guarantee that any or all of these skills will be attempted or mastered.  If the entire group is able to perform these skills to a level that the Instructor deems proficient, then the group will go up the lift. There is no guarantee that the class will go up the lift.

A ski ticket is required for all lessons whether the class uses the lift or not.  If the lift is used during a lesson, the student may ride with the Instructor, another student, ski patrol, a volunteer from the lift line, or by himself or herself.


Skiing is a wonderful activity that we enjoy very much.  We appreciate you giving us the opportunity to share this sport with you.
