Skier Improvement Days

Get an early start this season on refreshing your skills, or learning new ones, at one or more of our ski club’s FREE lesson days; conducted by certified professional ski instructors.

This season’s schedule of opportunities to enhance your skills will be on both weekdays and weekends (Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays). The dates will coincide with Potter Bros Discount Flex Tickets program.

Monday, January 2 at Jiminy Peak will be our first Ski Improvement Day of the New Year. Lift tickets should be purchased in advance from a local Potter Bros. Ski Shop for 43.95… great deal! (Lift tickets CANNOT be purchased the day of the event at the Potter Bros shop at Jiminy Peak)

We will meet at 9 am in Jiminy’s JJ’s Lodge (cafeteria floor), the bldg on the left as you climb the stairs going towards the lifts.

If you plan to participate in the Ski Improvement Day, contact Herb Eschbach at or (845) 242-6699, and indicate your approximate level of skiing. We will provide a list of participants a day ahead in case you would like to contact others to carpool.

Ski Education

On most ski trips HVSC offers FREE instruction for beginners and intermediate skiers.  Lessons are also available at other times, based on instructor availability, by contacting the Alpine Ski Education Committee Chairman listed above.

The Alpine Ski Education Committee will try for at least one instructor to be on all Club trips. Exceptions are any Western or European trips.

For all new skiers, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to ski and to meet other skiers at your level
