School Snowsports introduces students to skiing and snowboarding in an adventurous and encouraging environment with experienced staff that make their first time on snow one to remember. The class is non-structured with Snowplanet Instructors merely supervising, encouraging students and offering tips as students engage in experiential learning.
School Freeride offers students the opportunity to challenge themselves on the slopes. Students may be experienced at Snowsports, or want to participate and contribute at their own pace with the help of their peers during this non-supervised session of skiing and snowboarding
Snow PE can be taken as a one-off visit or as part of a tailored program over a number of sessions. We customise each Snow PE session for skiers and snowboarders from beginner through to advanced.

Our 1hr Snow PE class streams skiers and snowboarders into small classes based on their level and ability. Classes offer structured learning and progression with the sole aim of taking students to the next level. Our instructors can customise content to the NZ curriculum.

Our 4hr Snow PE class combines the benefits of our 1hr Snow PE lesson with an additional 3 hours freeride allowing students to participate and contribute at their own pace with the help of their peers during the non-supervised part of this session.
