Frequently Asked Questions

Perisher Snowsports School

What Snowsports School lesson offerings will you provide this year

We are pleased to offer a variety of snow sports lessons this season. Please explore our lesson pages for more information.

Are lift tickets included with your lessons?

No, lift tickets are not included in lesson purchases. All lesson participants require a valid lift ticket regardless of their ability level.

Lift access for use in your lesson can be purchased in the form of a single or multi day lift ticket or Epic Australia Pass and must be purchased online and in advance. Please note that single and multi day lift ticket prices are based on daily rates, regardless of the number or type of lifts used during the lesson.

Do I need to book lessons in advance?

Yes, lessons must be booked online and in advance to avoid disappointment and to ensure availability for your preferred dates and times.

If you are trying to book lessons and the lesson appears as Sold Out or Lesson Full, it means that at this stage we are at maximum capacity for that lesson.

Any additional capacity will be released directly to the online shop. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a waiting list for these products.

I'm an adaptive rider, how do I book a lesson?

We offer discounts on single and multi day lift tickets and 50% off private lessons for guests who are Epic Australia Adaptive Pass holders, full members of Disabled Winter Sport Australia (DWA) or Companion Card holders.

To book an adaptative private lesson please contact us in advance so that we can discuss your specific requirements and capabilities with the Perisher Snowsports School.

Preparing for your lesson

When should I arrive for my lesson?

We recommend arriving 10 minutes before your lesson start time. Please allow extra time to travel into and around the resort in peak times (weekends and school holidays) to avoid being late to your lesson.

Do I need to collect my rentals before I go to my lesson?

Yes, make sure you have all your rental gear, waterproof clothing, gloves and other necessary items before you head off on your lesson.

What happens if I'm late for my lesson?

Please allow extra time to travel into and around the resort in peak times (weekends and school holidays) to avoid being late to your lesson and to ensure that lessons can start on time.

If you’re running late for a lesson, please head straight to your lesson meeting to find a Snowsports School supervisor. If you cannot find a Snowsports School supervisor head to a ticket office where one of our staff will help you.

Please note that if you miss your lesson due to lateness the lesson cost is non-refundable. We will do our best to accommodate you, however once lessons have left the meeting area late arrivals may not be able to join.

How do I change or cancel my lesson?

If your plans change you have the option to either cancel or change your lesson booking.

Changes or cancellations that result in money being payable back to the purchaser will be issued in the form of a Snow Credit. No cash refunds will be issued.
