Reasons to take a lesson

You've had your first time lesson, maybe you feel a bit rusty or you just want to get to the next level. The good news is that all group lessons have now been boosted.

  • Lessons have increased to two and a half hours
  • Learn from the best and skip lift lines 
  • Receive more personalised tuition and progress faster as your instructor will have extra time to give individual feedback with lessons capped at a maximum of seven participants

Ways to save on group lessons

  • Buy your group lesson online and in advance for discounts.
  • Buy multi-day lesson packs to save time and enjoy the flexibility of a rest day. Valid for when you buy four or more lessons.
  • Epic Australia Pass holders receive up to 25% savings on any group lessons. Bookings must be over the counter and are valid up to seven lessons.

A valid lift pass is required for all group lessons and is not included within the lesson price. If a group lesson contains two or less participants it will only run for one and a half hours due to its intimate and private nature.

2020 Updates to Private Lessons

Fast track your on-snow skills with a personalised lesson

Whether it's your first time on the snow or you're a seasoned professional, you will always improve with a private lesson. Our Ski and Ride School instructors are passionate, experienced and offer supportive instructions in a safe learning environment to suit all levels of skiing, snowboarding, telemark and cross country.
Lessons can be taken solo or with friends and family, however all participants must be the same ability. Skiers and snowboarders cannot be in the same lesson and a valid lift pass is required for all lessons. 

What you need to know 

  • Private lessons are very popular and must be booked online in advance.
  • Helmets for all skiers and snowboarders are highly recommended
