Rippers ‘n’ Riders Kids Ski & Snowboard Program

A weekly term program to learn the fundamental movement in skiing and snowboarding for children aged 5 to 16.

The Rippers ‘n’ Riders kids ski & snowboard program includes:

  • A 90 minute group ski or snowboard coaching session with one of our Ski and Board School Instructors.
  • Access to the snow for the 90 minute duration of their lesson.
  • Full use of our snow sports rental equipment, including skis/snowboard and boots for the duration of their 90 minute lesson (excludes rental clothing).
  • 90 minute helmet hire for the lesson (helmets are compulsory for the Rippers ‘n’ Riders Program).

This program is suitable for first timers all the way through to experienced riders and skiers. You can expect to learn to control your speed and how to turn in a fun, group environment. As you progress we will teach you to control your edges and how to execute different types of turn, including parallel (for skis) and carved turns. Other progressions will introduce you to the terrain park and how to navigate basic jumps and boxes.

In addition to the Rippers ‘n’ Riders price below, you may also need a Snowplanet RFID card to access the lifts and ski mat in the Snow Dome. A deposit of $7 is charged for this RFID card. Please keep the card for future use (the duration of the term program) or return it for a full refund.

School Holiday Programs – 2021

Unfortunately Snowplanet will not be running school holiday programs these October school holidays.

At best we will be operating under a restricted Level 2 and won’t have the capacity to be able to accommodate program participants, regular visitors and members.
We are deeply disappointed at having to make this decision, and if we are open during the school holidays we will operate 2hr scheduled visits for members and non-members alike, bookable online.
Bookings will open as soon as we know we are going to Level 2, not before. We can’t wait to see you all at Level 2, until then stay safe! We miss you!
