Whether it's your first time on the snow or you're a seasoned professional, you will always improve faster with a private lesson, either solo or with friends and family.
Private lessons will be available for purchase, with the following options available:
New for 2021, you can create your own private lesson group where extra guests come without any extra cost.
Whether it's your first time on the snow or you're a seasoned professional, you will always improve with a private lesson. Our Ski and Ride School instructors are passionate, experienced and offer supportive instructions in a safe learning environment to suit all levels of skiing, snowboarding, telemark and cross country.
Lessons can be taken solo or with friends and family, however all participants must be the same ability. Skiers and snowboarders cannot be in the same lesson and a valid lift pass is required for all lessons.
A wide variety of private lesson times and durations are available to best suit your group's needs. Private lessons are available daily from 8.30am with the last lesson commencing at 3.30pm.
Private lessons can be taken from Hotham Central or the Big D at your request. Cross country meets at Jack Frost after 1.00pm only.
2021 Prices Coming Soon
Are lift passes & rental gear included in the private lesson price?
No, the price of a private lesson includes the cost of the lesson only. Lift passes & rental gear can be purchased via the Online Shop.
Can adults and children go into a private lesson together?
We do not recommend that adults take lessons with young children. The instructor will be focused on the youngest child for the majority of the lesson. From experience, we find that the adults do not get much tuition from the instructor.
Can we ski and snowboard in the same private lesson?
No, you will need to book an instructor for either skiing or snowboarding.
How many people can you book into a private lesson?
Will there be other members of the public in my private lesson?
No, the private lesson is booked for you only; if you have friends or family who wish to join your lesson we can do this provided you contact us and let us know.
I want to book a full-day private lesson (6 or 7 hours), is there a lunch break included?
All instructors must have a 30-minute break during a full-day private lesson; this is not included in the lesson duration if the instructor has a break in our lunchroom. If you would like the instructor to have lunch with you during their break time, this is included in the lesson duration.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations or changes to the date/time of your private lessons are subject to our Terms and Conditions (see items 32 and 33).
