    School Groups Snowsports Lesson Locations

    Perisher’s Snowsport School offers group lessons at Blue Cow and Smiggin Holes with lessons tailored to suit each location’s unique environment and terrain.

    It is advised all School Groups arrive 10 minutes prior to their designated start time.

    School Group Lesson Times

    School group lessons are offered at 8.30am at Smiggin Holes (excluding NSW July School Holidays and weekends in July & August) and 9am and 11am in Blue Cow.

    Beginners who have never skied or snowboarded before will have priority access to the first lesson time each day 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 Group Class Sizes & Composition

    We require a minimum of 20 students for a school group. Perisher Snowsports group lessons are assigned at a ratio of approximately 1 instructor for every 10 students. Perisher requires a minimum of 8 students of the same ability and discipline per instructor.

    Lessons will be allocated based on student’s ability and discipline. Class groupings will be determined during your first lesson. As instructors are allocated based on student numbers, ability levels and discipline, if your group does not meet our minimum requirement your smaller groups may be merged with another school or public lessons. Class groupings will be determined during your first lesson.
