Junior Workshop (6-14 Years)

With a full day of adventure on skis or snowboard, including professional tuition, lunch and a lift pass, your child will be on their way to mastering the slopes in no time

Here at Falls Creek, we are all about progression and our Junior Workshop is the best place to be.

Whether your child is just starting out or experienced, the Junior Workshops are designed to work with all abilities and group children together based on their ability and age*.

Falls Creek's Junior Programs have an emphasis on fun and safety whilst teaching essential skills for young skiers and boarders. Leave the children with us and be assured they are in a safe environment with qualified instructors having an absolute blast.

*During peak season, children are grouped by ability and age whilst in the later months (September onwards) children are grouped by just ability.

What Do I Need?

In most cases you don't need to buy your child a Lift Pass as this is included in the Junior Workshop program (see pricing below) but your child will need a Snow Pass ($5) with a Junior Workshop product pre-loaded. You can do this at the Slalom Plaza Ticket Box or via the estore.

On the day of the lesson you need your child suited up with appropriate snow gear, gloves, goggles, skis/snowboard, boots and helmet (if you are renting it is best you organise this at least the night before).

*Helmets are compulsory for all children's programs at Falls Creek

Where Do I Go?

Check-in is at the Junior Workshop grading flags in front of Cloud 9 at the top of the Halleys Comet Chairlift. You can ride Halleys Comet without skis on and our attendants are on hand to ensure safe loading of you and your child. Parents or guardians are able to accompany their child onto the lift for pickup and dropoff regardless if they are skiing or not.

Lesson Times

Full Day Programs  check-in at 9:45am. We recommend you arrive at Falls Creek an hour and a half early on the first day of your lesson to ensure enough time to collect passes, organise rentals, load the lift  and register.

Please make sure you check in at least 15 minutes before the start of your child's program/lesson. Joining the Halleys Comet line in Slalom Plaza 30 minutes before the lesson start should give you enough time.
