What you need to know

Mighty Mites is back for 2022 offering half day morning lessons, and the Afternoon Care add-on, that is perfect kids learning to ski.

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 8.30am and 9.30am, including if you have pre-purchased your pass online. Once registration has closed we cannot guarantee your child a spot in the program on that day.

Children are required to be toilet trained and in underwear for this program.

Please pack some indoor shoes for your child for their afternoon activities.

For more information please read our Parents Information Sheet.
