What you need to know

Mighty Mites is back for 2024, offering both half day morning lessons and full day programs.

Our Mighty Mites ski program is available for youngsters aged between three and six years old. The program involves small class sizes and utilises extra indoor staff to assist and help maximise your child’s Mighty Mites experience.

If you require rental equipment, we advise you get fitted the evening before your lesson. Hotham Sports Kids is conveniently located within the Big D building and can cover all your child’s equipment hire needs. 

You must arrive at the Big D and have your child ready to hit the snow by registering your child between 9.00am and 9.45am. Once registration has closed, we cannot guarantee your child a spot in the program on that day.

Children are required to be at least 3 years of age, toilet trained and in underwear for this program.

If your child is staying for a full day program, please pack some indoor shoes for your child for afternoon activities.
