First things first,  it is best to pre-book your lesson in advance to make sure get a place - you can do this by calling 03 5758 1070. 

On the day of the lesson you don't need to buy your child a Lift Pass (as this is included in the Junior Workshop program price) but your child will need a Snow Pass ($5).

On the morning of the lesson you need your child suited up with appropriate snow gear, skis, boots and helmet (again, if you are renting make sure you organise this at least the night before).

Please check in at the Junior Workshop grading flags around 15 minutes before the start of your child's lesson. This is located at the top of the Falls Express Chairlift so make sure you factor in time to ride the chair to the top. Arriving at the bottom of the chair (Slalom Plaza) 30 minutes before the check-in time should provide you with adequate time in the case of a busy lift line. 

You can ride Falls Express without skis on and our attendants are on hand to ensure safe loading of you and your child.
