  • Indoor staff to assist with any of your child's needs
  • Skip lift lines with our priority loading

*Groups are always based on ability, however groups based on age and ability will only be available during peak season (July-August).

Meeting Area:

Junior Workshop is located next to Cloud 9 restaurant, at the top of Halley’s Comet Chairlift. Access Halley's Comet chairlift from Slalom Plaza or if you're staying closer to the Village Bowl, you can ride Eagle Express Chairlift and catch the free Eagle Shuttle over to Cloud 9^.

If you can ski or snowboard down advanced green runs, you can also access Junior Workshop by skiing or riding from Eagle Express to Cloud 9.

If you and/or your child have never skied before, we highly recommend that you carry your skis on the lift to allow for easier and safer loading and unloading. You can ride both Halley's Comet and Eagle Express without skis or a snowboard on. Our friendly Lift Operators are on hand to ensure safe loading of you and your child.

When accompanying children on the lift, a valid lift pass is required. For non-skiing parents/guardians, you will be required to purchase a $5 Mountain Access Card to get on the lift. 

^Eagle Shuttle runs during peak times only. Download the Falls Creek App from the App Store to confirm whether the Eagle Shuttle is operational during your stay.

Here is a list of essentials to pack for your child’s Junior Workshop lesson:

  • A valid Mountain Access Card, with Junior Workshop loaded onto it
