Why Ski & Snowboard Lessons Aren't Just For Beginners And Kids

Group snowboard lesson at Perisher

2 June 2023

Ski and snowboard lessons are a great way to improve both your skills and confidence on the mountain. Unfortunately, there is a common misconception that lessons are just for beginners and children. However, we're here to assure you this is far from the case!

Whether it’s your first time on the snow, or your fifth-consecutive season, there is always room for improvement when it comes to snow sports.

Learning, or refamiliarising yourself with the correct technique and mountain safety can really transform your experience while you’re visiting the snow.

Benefit from small group sizes, priority lift access, highly qualified instructors, and the opportunity to explore Perisher’s four resort areas in a safe and fun environment with Perisher Snowsports School.


Benefits of Adult Group Lessons

There are many reasons why Adult Group Ski and Snowboard Lessons should be a part of your itinerary while at Perisher. We’ve put our heads together and come up with some of our favourite. 

Get to know the mountain

No one knows Perisher quite as well as one of our ski or snowboard instructors! Whether it’s your first time at Perisher or you’re still learning your way around, a group lesson is an excellent way to familiarise yourself with the terrain in a safe and fun environment.

Skip the lift line

Perisher’s Snowsports School also has priority lift line access, meaning that you’ll spend less time lining up and more time discovering the resort! Learn the best areas to nail your pole plant, master linking your turns, or to practise your snowploughs!

A full crew of awesome ski and snowboard instructors

With over 400 ski and snowboard instructors on the job, Perisher Snowsports School is fully crewed-up and ready to rock and roll for 2023. Perisher Snowsport instructors are professionally trained and avid ski and snowboarders themselves, ensuring that your lesson is fun, safe, and informative.

Pick up where you left off

We all know that practise makes perfect, and being a seasonal sport, it can be hard to retain the ski or snowboard skills you’ve learnt over the Winter. That’s where Perisher Snowsports School comes in! Booking an adult ski or snowboard lesson for your first few hours back on the mountain is a great way to refresh both your technique and confidence. It’s easy to get back into the flow of things when you have a professional showing you (or reminding you of) the ropes!

Early morning lessons to make the most of the conditions

Perisher Snowsports School offers 9AM Adult Group Lessons, 7 days a week meaning you can make the most of those premium, early morning conditions: fresh snow, groomed runs, and smaller class sizes. Plus, our instructors know the best spots on the mountain for some early morning turns!

Suited to guests of all abilities

Not only do our Snowsports lessons cater to guests of all skill levels, we also accommodate guests with varying abilities. Perisher Snowsports School offers private adaptive lessons with internationally recognised adaptive instructors, meaning we provide guests lessons tailored to their ability. Perisher offers 50% off private lessons for guests who are Epic Australia Adaptive Pass holders, Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA) members or Companion Card holders. Please contact us ahead of your trip to Perisher to secure an adaptive private lesson.

Make new friends!

Have your well-seasoned friends left you in their dust? Fear not – Group Adult Lessons at Perisher are a great way to meet people of the same skill level as you. Make the most of your time on the mountain with people who are also learning the art of the T-Bar or who also love to try a jump! Group lessons are a great way to find a mate who can match your energy on the slopes. And plus, you’ll have more friends to Apres with!
