Getting your kids comfortable with snow in their early years is the key to building confident skiers and snowboarders down the track.
The Snowclub Program* is dedicated to laying the solid foundations of snow fitness and introducing kids to their first skiing experience. It is a great platform to progress their skills and love of skiing. Snowclub caters for children from 3 years of age with professional caring staff and a fun filled atmosphere.
Located in the special children’s terrain park, your kids will enjoy a day of tuition, fun, games, surprise visits from Pete the Snow Dragon as well as a fully catered lunch (for full day & half day programs) and snacks.
*The Snowclub Program only offers skiing, snowboarding is offered for ages 6 and up in the Junior Workshop Program.
WHAT DO I NEED?
For the first day of your lesson you will need a completed Registration form to check in. It is best to pre-fill this to avoid delays.
You don't need to buy your child a Lift Pass (as this is included in the Snowclub program) but your child will need a Snow Pass ($5) with a Snowclub 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, boots and helmet (if you are renting it is best to organise this at least the night before).
*Helmets are compulsory for all children's programs at Falls Creek
WHERE DO I GO?
The Snowclub building is at the far end of Cloud 9 - head left when you disembark 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.
Full Day and Morning Programs (These include lunch) commence at 10:00am with registration from 9:15am. Single lessons commence at 10:00am and 1:30pm (but these don't include lunch). 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 - 30 minutes if it is your child's first day. Joining the Halleys Comet line in Slalom Plaza 30 minutes before the lesson start should give you enough time.

We have never skied before and trying it for the first time.
SUPER STOPPERS - Snowplow Stop
We can stop strongly using a triangle. We will learn to control our speed and make turns.
WOMBAT RAMBLERS - Snowplow Turns
We can link turns all the way down Wombats Ramble. We will learn to refine turns and use a smaller triangle.
HIGHWAY PATROLLERS - Basic Christie
We can ski easy blue runs like Highway 83 with refined snowplow turns. We will learn to match our skis at the end of the turn.
MOUNTAIN EXPLORERS - Basic Parallel
We can ski all the easy blue runs and are matching our skis between turns. We will learn to ski parallel as we explore the whole mountain
Please note - All children need to be at least 3 years of age and completely toilet trained to attend any of our snow sport programs. If your child is 2 years old and would like to give skiing a try, this can be arranged via a private lesson. Children aged 6 are permitted to participate in the Snowclub and group lessons.
