Hi I am going down to Perisher this weekend with my 5 year old son. This is the second time this year and last time he had lessons at front valley on the magic carpet. The instructor said he was ready to learn how ride the chair lift. My question is which chair lift would be the easiest to learn on. I am talking about getting on and off the chair and the ski run because the village 8 could be a big jump for him. He is booked in more lessons at smiggins this trip. Would they take him on any chair lifts in smiggins? Also he is booked in to a 11am lesson at Smiggins on the Saturday. We are leaving from Canberra in the morning and have to hire gear at Jindabyne on the way through. What time should we leave Canberra and do you think I can still get parking at smiggins keeping in mind that the weather looks good and it could be busy.
