Founded in 1971, Ski-Away is proud to be the oldest traveling alpine school in the Twin Cities area.  Not only do we offer a great way to enjoy our Minnesota winter ~ ~ our supportive teaching environment encourages women to improve their skiing and riding skills at their own pace and comfort level.

Our amazing staff of womens instructors are an integral part of the Ski-Away legacy.  All of our instructors have been certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA/ AASI).  With years of experience both locally and at national resorts, the staff at Ski-Away live up to a reputation as some of the very best ski, snowboard, and race teachers in the Twin Cities.

From our welcoming introductions for beginners... to refining All-Mountain tactics... to getting faster in the race course...there is a class for everyone.  

It's going to be a great winter ~ ~ and, we look forward to skiing and riding with YOU!

We Don't Teach Women to Turn ... We Teach Women to Ski and Ride!

"Dear #bestclassever ~...thought I should let you know that I have accomplished my goal of skiing with my son this year. I am in line for the first lift up and taking the last lift up all the way up and down the mountain here at Snowmass.

Each of you helped me achieve this goal. My older brother that lives in Snowmass for 50 years said he enjoyed skiing with me & my son is pretty impressed. My classmates, you all gave me the knowledge and encouragement I needed to push myself.

Two more blue bird days ahead for us. According to the tracker app, we skied 30 miles today."
