School Groups Snowsports Lessons

All Day Lesson Bundles

All Day lesson bundles offer the convenience of starting your lesson where and when you want! With 6 hours of tuition your students can explore the entire mountain each day and get the best out of their snow experience while being supervised all day.

2 Hour Lesson Bundles

Our 2 Hour lessons start your day off right with tuition and pointers to ensure students are educated about safety and learn to master their turns to enjoy their day on the mountain.    

School Groups Snowsports Lesson Locations

Perisher's Snowsports School offers 2 hour lessons at Blue Cow and Smiggin Holes with lessons tailored to suit each location's unique environment and terrain. All Day Group lessons may choose to begin their lesson in Perisher Valley as well as Blue Cow or Smiggin Holes.

School Groups Lesson Times

School group lessons are offered at 8.30am and 10.30am at Smiggin Holes and 9am and 11am daily in Blue Cow.  Early timeslots are reserved for beginners who have never skied or snowboarded before to ensure they can safely make the most of their time on the mountain. 

Access to the early lesson time may be restricted from the second day onwards as preference will be given to school groups with first time skiers and snowboarders who are on the first day of their visit.

School Groups Class Sizes & Composition

To get the best value you will need a minimum of 20 students of similar age. Instructors are generally assigned to groups on a ratio of approximately 1 instructor for every 10-12 students (this does not include teachers or chaperones).  Perisher's Snowsports School representative and instructors will determine the grouping when you arrive at the meeting place to start your lesson.

Perisher requires a minimum of eight students of the same ability and discipline per instructor. If your group has smaller numbers of students at different ability levels, students from multiple schools may be merged together or students may need to be placed in a public lesson.

As a group, you also have the ability to conveniently store your equipment at Bullocks Flat Skitube terminal overnight and save loading it on to the bus.

Skitube - Alpine Railway

Skitube is the easy way to get your group to Perisher. No need to worry about snowy roads and delays with having to put snow chains on the bus, also potentially save money on coach costs by not having to travel into the National Park, and there is plenty of parking available at Bullocks Flat. Also if you purchase a Snow Experience bundle you get free Skitube, which means even more experiences for less!

The Station Accommodation

The Station is the perfect base for your group, school or club's next winter adventure. With versatile accommodation options and 3 great food and beverage outlets, it's a great base for skiing, snowboarding and snow play for every budget.

Risk Assessment Resources

We understand that you'll need to complete a Risk Assessment for your School Group, something that we can help you with.

Perisher's 400 strong team of qualified Snowsports School staff all have verified competency from the independent, Nationally Recognised Training – SIS10 Sport, Fitness and Recreation program. All instructors must undergo a Working with Children Check as a prerequisite condition of their employment.

Perisher can help you keep track of your group while they are on the slopes with our sophisticated ticket system – we recommend you record the ticket number for each student so our Guest Services team can help you identify the last lift a student has ridden. Keeping track of the ticket numbers also allows us to easily replace lost tickets.
