Perisher School Groups

We are looking forward to welcoming School Groups back to Perisher!

Why bring a School Group to Perisher?

Perisher has a great range of group packages to make the most of your snow experience.

Our School Group Coordinator can provide all-inclusive ski and snowboard packages that cover everything you need from lift and lesson tickets, equipment and clothing rental, lunches and more!

What forms a School Group?

School Groups must be comprised of 20 or more students attending primary school (from 7 years of age) or secondary school (up to and including Year 12).

NOTE: School Group rates do not apply to tertiary education or any other social or community groups.

2022 Updates
  • Lesson duration extended to 3 hours in 2022.
  • In the event that Perisher needs to manage capacity to allow for physical distancing, amendments may be made to the 2022 School Group product offering. Our School Group Coordinator will advise if any such changes are made.
Lift Tickets

Lift tickets provide the School Group access to 47 lifts across Perisher’s four (4) interlinked resort areas (Smiggin Holes, Blue Cow, Perisher Valley and Guthega).

School Group lift tickets can only be purchased in combination with lessons, and can be packaged with:

  • Daily Skitube travel between Bullocks Flat to Perisher including NPWS Park Entry fees
  • Rental clothing and equipment
  • Lunch on mountain
Snowsports Lessons

Perisher Snowsports School has an experienced team of local and internationally certified ski and snowboard instructors.

NOTE: School Group lessons are not available for children aged 6 years and under.

Lesson Detail:

3 Hour Morning Lesson

  • A daily lesson program structured to give your students the confidence they need to safely enjoy their time on the mountain.
  • Our team of qualified instructors will assess the terrain and lifts suitable for each group of students and provide recommendations on where the school group can safely continue to enjoy their skiing and snowboarding once the daily lesson is complete.
  • Lesson location and time will be confirmed 14 days prior to arrival.

Additional Afternoon Lessons

  • 3-hour afternoon lesson add-on will offer the convenience and flexibility of a full day of supervised on-snow time to safely enjoy the mountain.
  • 2-hour afternoon lesson add-on will provide your group a 5-hour day to boost on-snow supervision time and maximise skiing and snowboarding skills.

Complimentary First Timer Lesson

  • A 2-hour first timer lesson including lift access is offered on Sunday afternoon as a complimentary addition to all 5-day packages which are booked to begin on Mondays.
  • This is a great introduction to learn the basics and is not offered to intermediate or advanced students.

Lesson Logistics

  • Lessons are offered for School Groups at Blue Cow and Smiggin Holes, with both locations offering morning lesson times tailored to suit each location’s unique environment and terrain.
  • First time skiers or snowboarders will have priority access to the earliest morning lesson times. Lessons may change to a later time from the second day onwards.
  • Lessons are assigned at a target ratio of approximately 1 instructor for every 10 students, with a minimum of 8 students of the same ability and discipline per instructor.
  • If your School Group has smaller numbers of students at different ability levels or disciplines, alternative solutions are listed under Booking Conditions 3.1
  • Should any member of the School Group require special assistance, contact must be made with the Groups Coordinator at the time of booking to make appropriate arrangements.
Snowsports Rental

Enjoy the convenience of hiring your equipment from Perisher Snowsports Rental and relax with the peace of mind that our extensive range of modern equipment, clothing, and accessories are available from slope side outlets that are set up to cater to large volume school groups.

Ski and snowboard rental packages include:

  • Skiers receive the latest skis, boots and poles; Snowboarders receive wrist guards, boots and a snowboard.
  • FREE helmet rental (wearing helmets is mandatory for students participating in lessons).
  • Clothing rental can be added to ski and snowboard packages.

If you intend on renting your equipment from Perisher and travelling to the resort via Skitube daily, you will have the ability to conveniently store your equipment at Bullocks Flat Skitube terminal overnight, saving you time loading it on and off the bus.

Free Teacher Packages

School Groups receive one free package for a teacher or adult supervisor for every 10 paying students. The lift, lesson and rental package inclusions will mirror whatever has been purchased for the students.

Teachers and adult supervisors are welcome to participate in group lessons but will not count towards the student number in determining class size and instructor allocations.

Lunch

Lunches are available at Blue Cow Bistro or at the Ski Rock Café in the Perisher Centre. Both locations are conveniently located on the mountain and offer a selection of healthy meals that accommodate a variety of dietary requirements.

School Groups will receive one free of charge meal for a teacher or adult supervisor for every 10 paying students.

Skitube – Alpine Railway

Skitube is the safest, quickest and most convenient way to get your group to Perisher.

Includes ample free coach parking at Bullocks Flat allowing you to avoid snowy roads, delays and coach costs that occur when driving up to the mountain.
