Hotham Ski & Snowboard School divide participants into coloured zones based on skiing or snowboarding abilities. Choose the zone that best reflects your ability to identify which lesson category you will be placed in.


  • Yellow Zone is for first time skiers
  • Green Zone is for if you are able to snowplough and stop and you are learning to turn and ride a lift
  • Blue Zone is for if you are starting to ski on blue terrain and learning to parallel ski. You are learning to use your poles and to balance more on your outside ski 
  • Black Zone is for if you are able to ski on black terrain and you are refining your skills so that you have upper and lower body separation with pole planting and timing


  • Yellow Zone is for first time snowboarders
  • Green Zone for if you have balance and speed control alternating between your heel and toe edge and you are comfortable with learning to ride a lift and learning to turn and link your turns 
  • Blue Zone is for consolidating your linked turns on green terrain and working towards linking your turns on blue terrain 
  • Black Zone is for if you are confident on linking turns on blue terrain and building skills to increase control. Black Zone is an introduction to freestyle riding and Terrain Parks
