The PowerLearn Program
An Elite Program For Big Improvement!
Windham Mountain hosts Mermer Blakeslee’s PowerLearn Program. Mermer and the team of PowerLearn instructors instill the physical and mental components necessary to master the art of skiing.
PowerLearn is designed for men and women who are intent on dramatically improving their skills. The program requires a high level of dedication, but it offers a generous list of added amenities and features – including well-tuned skis and custom-fitted boots, video analysis and intensive, customized, ski-oriented coaching.

Develop the versatility and technical finesse to ski the mountain anywhere in any condition with athleticism and grace. PowerLearn’s power starts with its teachers. All are certified with the Professional Ski Instructors of America, hand-picked by Mermer and trained in her PowerLearn curriculum.
The PowerLearn Essentials:
Appropriate Equipment: We’ll align or “set up” your boots to enable you to ski with a correct stance. We’ll also make sure your skis fit your ability, size, and strength, and that they are tuned regularly so they can work as designed.
Technical Curriculum: We’ll offer coherent, consistent instruction using an experiential, ski-oriented approach to develop fundamental skills. With the intensity of a race camp or instructor training program, you’ll practice and refine essential drills and integrate what is learned into your mountain skiing.
Psychological Awareness: Whether negotiating bumps, steeps, ice, or speed, we will challenge you to expand your comfort zone, incorporating ideas and strategies found in Mermer Blakeslee’s book, A Conversation with Fear.
Customized Learning: We’ll cast a wide net, using as many learning modes as possible: video analysis, indoor movement and Q&A sessions, personal cue words, customized practice, etc. But most importantly, we’ll teach you, not a system, so no matter what your learning needs are, we will meet them.
