The Fine Print

  • Lessons will only be run if there will be 6 or more participants. In some case we can offer lessons for less than 6 people for a shorter duration, but with a better teacher:student ratio.
    Bookings should be made by 5pm on the Wednesday before the lesson if possible, however they will still be accepted after Wednesdays (this helps with planning instructors etc).
  • There might be times when, because of a lack of snow you will need to catch the ski tube to Blue Cow to attend a lesson. You will have to pay for the ski tube, so make sure you carry the fare with you.  For more information and ski tube prices go to http://www.perisher.com.au/resort-information/getting-to-perisher/skitube.html.
  • Lesson locations are subject to change depending on conditions.
