Full Day Kids Club lesson programs are back in 2023!

Hotham’s popular Full Day Kids Club lesson program is back for 2023. This is a great way for children to learn, meet new friends and explore the mountain.​

Kids Club creates a unique environment that provides kids the opportunity to make new friends while gaining the maximum benefit from skiing and boarding with our qualified instructors.​

You will be given a plastic tag when purchasing your Kids Club program which acts as the registration form. Please ensure this tag is securely fitted to each child's clothing when dropping your child off for their lessons.

Older participants may leave their lesson without a parent collecting them if permission is indicated on their registration tag.

Before your child’s lesson be sure to hire or buy your on snow equipment from Hotham Sports Kids located at the Big D or Hotham Central by booking online in advance. If equipment is being hired on the same day, arrive an hour before your lesson to allow time to try on and collect your equipment. Kids will need skis or snowboards with outerwear including gloves, helmet and eyewear (sunglasses or goggles).

Lunch is included for Full Day lesson programs and will be provided at one of Hotham’s facilities. Information on special dietary requirements will need to be provided at the time of booking to discuss if we can accommodate these needs.

Kids Club participants are to meet outside the Big D building from 9.00am to 9.30am where an instructor will be allocated. For participants who still need to be registered, collect lift passes, hand in medication or arrange equipment hire within the Big D building, then we recommend arrival at least 30 minutes earlier. Once registration has closed, we cannot guarantee your child a spot in the program on that day.

Meeting place

All Kids Club participants will meet outside The Big D building which is located at Bus stop number 5.

Registration times

Kids Club participants are to meet outside the Big D building at 9am where an instructor will be allocated. For participants who still need to be registered, collect lift passes, hand in medication or arrange equipment hire within the Big D building, then we recommend arrival at least 30 minutes earlier. Once registration has closed, we cannot guarantee your child a spot in the program on that day.
