About Madison Wells

HI! I’m Madison, (Mads for short). I was born and raised here in Tahoe City and have been skiing since I was 2. I have my PSAI level 1 certification and my goal is to make it as easy and as fun as possible to learn how to ski. In the summertime you can find me hiking and backpacking. A fun fact about me is that I am an actress and have been in TV shows and movies such as Westworld and Mary Queen of Scots.

This was my first time snowboarding! Madison was a great teacher! She gave me skills to further my snowboarding in the future. Madison was kind and patient as I learned to ride down the hill. I had a really fun time snowboarding with her! I hope to get more lessons from Madison in the future!

Madison was a great instructor for my 9 year old son and his first time skiing. She was super patient, made it fun, and was encouraging throughout the half day session. I was excited to see that by the end of the half day, my son was confident enough to ski down the hill by himself. I would highly recommend Madison and this was an all around great experience.

This is our 4th time taking our daughter here. I appreciate the fact that the instructors always teach my daughter to her comfort level. This is a great place to learn the basics of skiing. My daughter loves this place!!!

She was great with our five year old, knew how to talk to him well. I know it’s challenging working with a two year old, and I think she could use some guidance/practice with that, just keeping them engaged and having fun. Make it a game for them is always good at that age! Thanks so much Madison!

I think she could have actually tried to teach then rather than look over at us parents and shake her head and say they won’t do it. Everything she did, us as parents could have done. Last experience last year the teacher was awesome. Madison put in a small effort. She started out strong but then gave up and 2 hours into the lesson pressured us to finish rather than complete the 3 hour lesson.

Madison is great with Safeeyah, she has the right balance of giving safeeyah the confidence to go by herself and also helping her. We will definitely be working with Madison again in the future.

Madison was very patient with us and very attentive to all of us. She was able to spend time with all of us together and separately pointing to the mistakes and correcting them. I highly recommend her as instructor both for kids and adults.

Madison is an amazing instructor. My kids enjoyed their ski lesson and want to have another lesson with her! It was a half day lesson, and Madison was upbeat, full of energy and explained instructions very clearly. I liked how Madison provided a debrief after the lesson and recommended what the kids should continue to work on. Thank you and look forward to having you again!

Madison was the perfect instructor for the boys as she got to know have they learn and used this to push them and develop their confidence. In total the boys had 5 hours of lessons with them, the first block being 3 hours and she kept our 8 year old attention throughout. I couldn't believe how quickly their confidence grew and how they progressed to the bigger slope and then how high they felt they could go. My eldest was inspired and loved skiing so much he wants to continue now we are back home and wants to come back to Lake Tahoe and ski with Madison again. Thank you.

Madison took the time to listen to my kids past ski history. She was encouraging and gave great feedback to the kids as they were learning. My kids learned and accomplished more in this one session than they did in past 3 ski school sessions in the last 3 seasons. They wished Madison would continue to be their teacher in future sessions.

Madison was amazing. Our son loved spending time with her and we booked her for a second three hour lesson the next day because they got along so well. She pushed him at an appropriate pace, was super patient with him and even drew him a picture of a snake (his favorite animal) skiing (she gave it to him on the second day after drawing it at home that night). We loved the selfies she took with him. We are looking forward to more lessons with her this year. Thanks Madison!

Madison is a great instructor. She was patient and gave clear step-by-step instructions to beginners. She was also very nice and enthusiastic. She encouraged us throughout the lesson and didn’t rush us when we were not sure. I highly recommend Madison to any families who hope to learn skiing.

We had a fantastic experience! Madison was genuinely out there to show the kids a good time! She was able to work with the needs of both the ages of our kids (2 and 8) seamlessly. Ultimately she was able to bring the skill level up for the kids, while also simply showing them how to be comfortable on the ski's and in the snow. We will absolutely be coming back for more!

Mads was great, she made it fun and worked with each of the two of us to get the hang of what we each struggled with. We were total beginners and were able to ski down the hill at the end of the lesson which felt great and made us want to continue with lessons in the future. She is very encouraging, helpful and a great skier. We would love to have a lesson with her again.
