OUR INSTRUCTORS KNOW ALL THE TRICKS FOR MAKING LEARNING HOW TO SKI AND SNOWBOARD FUN!
The Mt Baw Baw Snow Sports Team is there to help you learn and improve! To make the most of your snow holiday, it’s a good idea to take a lesson (Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced Programs).
There’s something for every level and liking – whether you are a skier, a rider, child, teen or an adult, we have highly qualified instructors from all over the globe who will ensure you have a safe and fun learning experience to suit your skills, ability and goals.
