SKI LESSONS BOOK AHEAD:
Group ski lessons at Mt Hotham this winter will be smaller and longer than ever before. Classes for 15 yrs+ will be limited to seven people while their duration will now be 2½ hrs up from 2hrs previously. This change will vastly improve the lesson experience for learner skiers and snowboarders providing more time with instructors like Nathalie Ouderaogo (pictured), to hone your skills and familiarise yourself with the resort. Extended lessons with Max 7 will be offered at the same price as 2016, from $63 if you buy online. Hotham also has great savings on lessons, lift passes and rentals if you purchase in advance. Purchase your lift pass online more than 14 days before the date and save up to 15 per cent while you can also save 10 per cent and 25 per cent on lessons and rentals all season long.
