Whether you're new to the slopes, a veteran of your sport, or just want to take your skiing or riding to the next level, group lessons are a great way to learn, improve or refine your skills.
A valid lift pass is required for all group lessons and is not included within the lesson price.
Adult Group Lessons run daily for two hours from 10am for all ability levels.
All Adult Group Lesson participants meet outside the middle entrance of Hotham Central 10 minutes before your lesson.
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.

What ski and ride school offerings will you provide this year
We are pleased to offer a variety of snow sports lessons this season. Please explore our lesson pages for more information.
Are lift tickets included with your lessons?
No, lift tickets are not included in lesson purchases. All lesson participants require a valid lift ticket regardless of their ability level.
Lift access for use in your lesson can be purchased in the form of a single or multi day lift ticket or Epic Australia Pass and must be purchased online and in advance. Please note that single and multi day lift ticket prices are based on daily rates, regardless of the number or type of lifts used during the lesson.
Do I need to book lessons in advance?
Yes, lessons must be booked online and in advance to avoid disappointment and to ensure availability for your preferred dates and times.
If you are trying to book lessons and the lesson appears as Sold Out or Lesson Full, it means that at this stage we are at maximum capacity for that lesson.
Any additional capacity will be released directly to the online shop. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a waiting list for these products.
I or a family member are a disabled rider, how do we book a lesson?
We offer discounts on single and multi day lift tickets and 50% off private lessons for guests who are Epic Australia Adaptive Pass holders, full members of Disabled Winter Sport Australia (DWA) or Companion Card holders.
To book an adaptative private lesson please contact us in advance so that we can discuss your specific requirements and capabilities with the Hotham Ski & Ride School.

Do I need to be fully vaccinated to ski and ride this season?
The safety of our guests, staff and community is our number one priority. While we currently do not require resort visitors to be vaccinated for Covid-19, any future COVID-19 vaccination or related requirements for this season (and future seasons) will be determined in accordance with Government health advice, and applicable public health orders and directions. You should check these FAQs regularly to understand the latest resort requirements.
When should I arrive for my lesson?
We recommend arriving 10 minutes before your lesson start time. Please allow extra time to travel around the resort in peak times (weekends and school holidays) to avoid being late to your lesson.
Do I need to collect my rentals before I go to my lesson?
Yes, make sure you have all your rental gear, waterproof clothing, gloves and other necessary items before you head off on your lesson.
Please allow extra time to travel around the resort in peak times (weekends and school holidays) to avoid being late to your lesson.
If you’re running late for a lesson please head straight to your lesson meeting area and look for a staff member. If you cannot find a staff member or your correct lesson group, please head to our Snowsports school office where one of our staff will help you. Please note that if you miss your lesson due to lateness the lesson cost is non-refundable.
We will do our best to accommodate you if you are running late. However, if your lesson group has already left the lesson area, they will not be able to return to collect late students.
