Snowclub (3-5 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 Snow Club this season

 


 

Let your kids fall in love with the snow!

For children aged 3 to 5 years old, our friendly Instructors will introduce your young ones to their first skiing experience. This program will progress their skills in a safe environment, with fun, professional Snowsports Instructors.

Your kids will enjoy a fun lesson filled with games, surprise visits from Pete the Snow Dragon, and on-snow activities.

Our Snowclub offers:

  • A safe and supportive environment with our friendliest instructors
  • A progressive learning experience with children arranged into groups based on ability
  • A purpose-built area, fitted with its own private kitchen and toilet facilities
  • Indoor staff to assist with any of your child's needs
  • Skip lift lines with our priority loading
  • Your child will explore the mountain in ways they've never seen before!

Please note, Snowclub is a skiing program. For children that would like to learn to snowboard, consider a private lesson.

*Snowclub requires all children to be toilet-trained.

If your child is unwell, even if symptoms are very mild, they should stay home. They should not attend Snowclub until they have recovered.

Meeting Area:

Snowclub 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 Snowclub 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 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.

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

  • A valid Snow Pass card, with Snowclub loaded onto it
  • Skis (poles if requested by your child’s Instructor)
  • Ski boots – these should be on your child’s feet when they arrive at Snowclub
  • Helmet (compulsory for all children & teens in Falls Creek Snowsports Programs)
