Ride Tribe (13-17 Years)

Safety remains our highest priority and we plan to remain open with limited operations for the remainder of the 2021 season, under the guidance of our local health and government officials. This means that our Snowsports School will no longer offer Ride Tribe this season

 


 

This is for the teens! Our Ride Tribe program is for teens aged 13 – 17 years who are already comfortable on blue terrain and above, and who want to continue to progress their skiing and snowboarding skills all over the mountain and in our Terrain Parks. Run by our expert Instructors, Ride Tribe creates a fun environment for your teens to enjoy ripping it up with others of similar age and ability.

Does your teen need equipment? Handy tip: book rental clothing & equipment online, in advance. If you're hiring rental equipment on the day of your lesson, we recommend allowing 1.5 hours before your lesson to collect your gear. During peak times, we also recommend arriving in Slalom Plaza to ride Halley's Comet 30 minutes before your lesson grading time commences.

Guests aged 13 – 14 years who are yellow and green levels can book into Junior Workshop and guests aged 15 – 17 years who are yellow and green level can book in Adult Lessons

Meeting Area:

Ride Tribe 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 Ride Tribe by skiing or riding from Eagle Express to Cloud 9.

If you and/or your teen 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 teen.

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 Snow Pass 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.
