‘It’s All About Me’ Private Lesson

For the real little snow goers who may not be ready for a long lesson or just want to give skiing or snowboarding a try we recommend this one hour, one-on-one session. We pair your child with a specialised instructor with dedicated 100% attention. 

Priority for Online Bookings
We recommend securing your preferred dates by booking your private lesson online. During checkout you have the option to make a special request for your preferred instructor or tell us more about your child. When allocating instructors we will prioritise special requests from online bookings first.

Lift Pass is required. Some peak season dates including school holidays may sell out. We highly recommend booking your lesson and lift pass at the same time to avoid disappointment.
