Group Snowboard Lessons

Falls Creek is regarded as one of Australia's top boarding spots, with highly experienced boarding instructors to match

Your experienced boarding instructor will have you cruising the best runs for your level, with no lift lines, as you take advantage of the Snowsports School express line entry. You'll meet up with other boarders of similar ability and you'll be cruising the slopes in no time.

Adult Group Lessons are available from age 15+.

Lesson Times

Programs for all standards commence at 10:00am and 1:30pm daily.

Morning programs run for 2 hrs 20 min, with Afternoon Super Sessions running for 1 hr 20 min.

You should check in at the meeting point least 15 minutes before the start of your lesson. Joining the Halleys Comet line in Slalom Plaza 30 minutes before the lesson start should give you plenty of time.

What you need to bring

The meeting point for all lessons is at the front of Cloud 9 - this is at the top of the Halleys Comet chairlift.

Morning lifts are sometimes busy - make sure you allow enough time to get to your meeting point.

You will need to be suited up and ready to ride in your outerwear, board and boots (if you are renting make sure you organise this at least the night before), with your lift pass and lesson pass loaded onto your Snow Pass.
