Private Lessons

Ski or Snowboard

For the ultimate experience in personalised Snowsports development, you can’t go past a private lesson. Your instructor will boost your confidence, build on your strengths, address your weaknesses and raise your overall ability to the next level.

Learning through the Snowsports School also gives you lift priority via the Snowsports School Express Lanes.

For the day of your lesson you will need a Snow Pass with a valid Lift Pass and Snowsports School Lesson pre-loaded onto your card. Lift tickets and certain lesson programs can be processed online via the online store.

You will also need to be suited up with your snow gear, helmet*, skis and boots or snowboard and boots. If you require rentals it is highly recommended that you organise this at least the night before the lesson to ensure a speedy experience, especially during the weekend.

The meeting point for private lessons is at the top of Halley's Comet, immediately in front of you as you unload the chair lift. You will immediately see a large sign marked "Private Meeting Place". We recommend joining the Halley’s Comet lift line at Slalom Plaza 30 minutes before your private lesson start time to ensure a promt arrival. For the ultimate Valet experience, book a "Premium All Day" private and have the insuctor meet you at your hotel *conditions apply.

*Falls Creek Snowsports Helment Policy requires that all participants in children's or teen snowsport program, plus any programs that access Terrain Parks, Race Courses or similar wear an approved snowsports hemet. For more information click here to view Falls Creek’s Helmet Policy.
