    How to make the most of your kid's lesson

    Want to get the most out of your child's lesson? Follow our tips below: 

    • Book online and in advance. Advanced bookings for consecutive multi-day lessons also allow our team to secure the same instructor for your child's group lesson.

    • We aim to maximise time on snow for all kids. If you are staying off mountain, please think about morning travel time and potential delays. If you need to collect rental gear on the mountain, we recommend arriving at least 1 hour before lesson time to get set up with equipment.

    • When arriving at the lesson meeting place, let us know about your child's previous on-snow experience, terrain they are comfortable on and current ability level - this information will help assist with suitable class allocation.

    Why not set your child up for success and start the day with a 1 hour Ripper Roo private lesson in the lead up to the 3 hour group lesson! Find out more.
