General Party Information
What To Wear

It is a very chilly -5 degrees in the snow dome, so wrap the kids up nice and warm by following our friendly advice:

Clothing

We recommend that the children wear a waterproof outer layer of clothing, preferably a ski jacket and pants. Underneath the waterproof layer, wear at least two layers of warm clothing, thermals are recommended. We highly recommend kids wear a beanie to help keep them warm. Rental Clothing (Jacket & Pants) is available to hire at a cost of $11 for one item or $19 for both the jacket and pants. Alternatively you can purchase basic retail items from Snowplanet on your arrival. For further details click here.

Gloves

A good pair of warm and waterproof snow gloves are essential to ensure enjoyment on the snow. Gloves are available to hire at a price of $9 per pair. Alternatively we have gloves available for purchase from $32.99 per pair.

Socks

It is important that each person brings their own socks. They are essential when wearing our ski and snowboard boots for comfort and hygiene reasons. If you require socks on the day, we have a limited selection available for purchase at a cost of $29.99 per pair.

Footwear

Footwear (ski or snowboard boots) is included for all of the Parties, so this is something to cross off your ‘worry’ list. However if parents or other adults are wanting to go in the snow there will be an extra charge for Boot hire.

Helmets

Helmets are compulsory for all children skiing or snowboarding at Snowplanet. Helmets are included within the ‘Freeride’ party, the ‘Winter Wonderland Tubing’ party, and the ‘Snow Sports’ party. If children do have their own helmets they are most welcome to bring them along instead.

Goggles

Goggles are not required during your visit to Snowplanet.

Child Supervision

For a fun, rewarding and safe experience at Snowplanet, all children must be supervised whilst in the Snow Dome. Further information can be found here. If you would like Snowplanet to do this we offer a ‘Birthday Supervisioin Service’ for $25 per 10 children per hour. Please ask for this when you book.

RFID Cards

All parties EXCLUDE RFID access cards. RFID access cards are not required for the Winter Wonderland Snow Fun or Snow Tubing birthday packages. However they will be required for Freeride and Snow Sports birthday packages. RFID cards allow access to the ski mat and platter lift. RFID cards cost $6 per person and are refundable upon return.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a private space we can hire?

Yes, we have built a dedicated birthday party space so that we can offer several Party Room options for our birthday parties.

Can we have a birthday party with less than six children?

Unfortunately, the minimum number of children required for a Snowplanet Party is six children. If there are less than six children on the day, this is no problem, however a minimum of six children will be charged for. The maximum number of children we can accommodate per party is 20.

Can adults go on the snow with the children?

One adult receives a free Snow Pass with each of the Parties (excluding Rental Equipment). Rental Equipment (skis or snowboard and boots) can be purchased at a price of $32. Additional adults are required to purchase their Snow Pass and Rental Equipment at the standard prices.

Adults are responsible for ensuring their children are supervised on the snow at all times.  One adult per booking of 6 children gains free entry to the snow.  Extra adults are permitted free entry to supervise and assist children, however if adults wish to participate in the activity our normal charges will apply. If you would like Snowplanet to do this we offer a ‘Birthday Supervision Service’ for $25 per 10 children per hour. Please ask for this when you book.

Is there somewhere to store our gear while we are on the snow?

We reserve an appropriate number of tables for the birthday celebration meal and then for 1hr hour during the party meal itself. We are happy for you to keep your bags and other gear at your table during that time, but we will need you to remove everything from the party area after the time allotted due to other birthday party bookings requiring that space. If you have extra gear to be stored we have lockers available for hire at a cost of $4 for 12 hours in the Rental Department.

Can we bring our own cake?

Yes, you certainly can! The ‘Kids Party’ team here at Snowplanet love to see the effort, creativity and hard-work that goes into the creation of the amazing birthday cakes that we see, so please feel free to bake up a storm and bring your marvelous creation with you. Alternatively, delicious Snowplanet Chocolate Birthday Cakes are available for purchase at a cost of $40 each. These need to be ordered at least 7 days in advance of the booking.

Can we bring our own food?

We offer 3 different menus that you may add to your snow party package. should you choose one of these we will provide a free party room. If you wish to bring your own food, you must hire a party room. You may choose to visit our restaurant as a casual diner without a booking after your snow party. No additional food can be brought into the 7Summits Restaurant for consumption. The only food item that is allowed to be brought in is a birthday cake, which can be stored by the Restaurant until ready. The restaurant reserves the right to request any additional food brought in to be consumed outside.

Can the kids swap between skiing and snowboarding?

The ‘Snow Sports’ Party provides kids with an instructor who will help them on their way to developing new skills quickly and efficiently within the 2 hours. It is not recommended for kids taking part in this party to switch between skiing and snowboarding. Children who have a ‘Freeride’ Party CAN swap between skiing and snowboarding. We completely support the notion that kids should try out both disciplines to ensure they have the best time possible!

Can we bring glitter or confetti to decorate the tables?

No. We do not allow glitter or confetti at Snowplanet due to the process of completely removing it again. Glitter and confetti generally cannot be vacuumed up completely with our standard cleaning procedures and requires additional commercial cleaners. Should you bring any sort of glitter or confetti you will be charged a $150 commercial cleaning fee. This will need to be paid before you leave.
