Lesson Options 2012

Group Lessons

This is the easiest and most affordable way to take a lesson.  Adult lessons (16 and over) run 2 times a day (9:30am and 1:30pm) and go for 2 hours. Child lessons (7 to 15 years) run 2 times a day (9am and 1pm) and go for 3 hours. Under 7s can participate in our Snow World Programs. Lessons cater for all levels of ability in both skiing or snowboarding disciplines.

For adults, the most economical and convenient way to purchase a Group Lesson is by buying a Lift & Lesson Package.  These packages combine your lift ticket with your group lesson and if you are buying a mulit-day package then you get 1 group lesson per day.  You can however purchase group lessons individually. Visit Lift & Lesson Packages under Rates and Prices to view individual group lesson prices.

Children can purchase group lesson in half day or full day programs which also include lift tickets. Multi-day half day packages includes a morning or afternoon lesson each day, whilst full day packages include a morning and afternoon lesson everyday. That's 6 hours of tuition every day! Visit Lift & Lesson Packages under Rates and Prices for more information on pricing.

Before you enrol in a group lesson it is handy for you to know what level you are and what time you can take your lesson.

Give It A Go

This package is designed for adults (16 years and over) who have never skied or snowboarded before and really aren’t sure if they are going to like it or not, but would like to give it a try without it costing the earth.  Give It A Go includes a  2 hour first timer group lesson with an afternoon lift ticket.  Lessons run at 1:30pm and after your lesson you are free to continue to use the lifts until the end of the day.
