Choosing the best lesson for you

Morning Group Lesson
Start fresh in the morning with a lesson to elevate your skiing for the rest of the day. Our morning group lessons will see you learning alongside others of your same ability level in a larger group environment. Our morning group lessons start at 10:00am and run for two hours and twenty minutes to ensure you get the most out of your lesson!*

Afternoon Super Session
Progress your skills to set you up for the rest of your holiday. Our afternoon super sessions cater for an intimate group experience, where you will learn alongside others of your same ability level in a smaller group environment. Our afternoon super sessions start at 1:30pm and run for an hour and twenty minutes, giving you the afternoon to practice those skills!

*If there are less than 3 people in a morning group lesson, the lesson will start at 10:00am and run for one and a half hours. 

What to bring along

You will need to have a valid Snow Pass card, with a lift pass and your lesson loaded onto it. You will also need to be suited up with your snow gear, helmet, skis and boots or snowboard and boots. Pre-purchase online to save yourself time and money by clicking here

Are lift tickets and a Snow Pass card included in the price of my adult group lesson?
Lift tickets and a Snow Pass card are not included in the price of our standard adult group lessons. The exception to this is our Learn to Ski and Learn to Board packages, which are designed specifically for people who have never skied or snowboarded before. Find out more about these packages here

I have booked lessons for both myself and my children. Will I have enough time to drop them off at their lessons and make it to my morning group lesson on time?
Yes, you will. It is only a short walk between the childrens meeting area and the adults meeting area, which are both located in Cloud 9. You can check your children into Snowclub from 9:15am and into Junior Workshop or Ride Tribe from 9:30am, leaving plenty of time to drop them off before making your way to your lesson by 9:45am.

Will my lesson run in all weather?
Yes, our lessons run in all weather! The exceptions to this are if the lifts are on a declared wind hold or lightning hold. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information. 

Do you offer lessons in languages other than English?
Our group lessons are taught in English. If you do have any special requests or would like your lesson to be taught in another language, we recommend contacting our Sales and Reservations team to enquire about booking private lessons. 

I'm late to my lesson. Can I still join in?
Once our lessons have started, latecomers are generally unable to join in. This is because the instructor will have assessed everybody's ability level and left the meeting area to access terrain most appropriate for the group level. Once groups have left the meeting area, it can be difficult to find them again and, even if you are able to find them, latecomers can disrupt the progression of the other group members. If you are late, see a member of our friendly team to discuss your options. Our team can be found at the following locations: The Home Base, Base One, Base Two, Slalom Plaza Ticket Office and the Snowsports School Office in Cloud 9, or can be contacted via phone or email. 

I've missed my lesson. What do I do?
