Perisher is the largest ski resort in Australia with 1,245 ha of skiable terrain spread over four interconnected ski resorts. The scale of the resort gives endless opportunities for your students to get active, challenge themselves physically and mentally and to build upon lessons from the classroom.
Team bonding and personal development
Snowsports tours have many benefits to student’s personal and social development. The ‘camp’ setting presents opportunities for students of all temperaments to demonstrate leadership. They work collaboratively in small teams at meal times, support each other during lessons and learn from each other throughout the week.
Activity and adventure
Whilst on tour, students will learn from an international team of high-calibre instructors at the Perisher Snowsports School. Whether it’s making turns down wide open groomed runs from the highest lift point in Australia or engaging in optional activities like the thrill of snow tubing or a quieter guided snow-shoe tour in the winter alpine environment there’s always something exciting to see and do here.
On-mountain optional activities
For groups with accommodation on the mountain, students can enjoy an alpine experience like no other with Perisher’s Neon Night Skiing and marvel at a spectacular fireworks display across a stark white alpine backdrop.
Off-mountain optional activities
Off-snow, the learning continues in the lakefront town of Jindabyne, a popular base for school groups that offers many educational opportunities. Students can learn about the Corroboree Frog Conservation Project in the Kosciusko National Park or learn about biology, aquaculture and recreation on a guided tour of the Gaden Trout Hatchery.
Throughout a fun-filled snow education program, students grow in confidence as they learn new skills, try new things and socialise with peers beyond their usual peer group.
