    I wouldn't mind trying to Jump into park this season. Heading to Perisher in 2 weeks.

    Do they offer park lessons? Or what's the best way to go about learning. I imaging most of the courtesy is common sense but I thought one lesson first to cement that type of knowledge might be wise.

    No worries!

    Ask for Andy Atkins, he is a Park instructor, trained in Canada!.

    He is mainly out of Smigs (which is good cause the Piper Park is where you will want to start!)

    Is there any information on the website about signing up to specific types of lessons? Or should I just ask when I'm there?

    Thanks :)

    I would go to Smigs lessons and tell the supervisor what you want to do.

    Or request a private. You can get good deals for early or late in the day.

    What about for skiers? Are there any instructors that you would recommend there?

    Interestingly there is no certification process for specific Park instructors for skiing.

    Snowboard instructors actually have a Certification process specifically (and separately) for park - well in Canada they do anyway...

    Have a chat to the ski school supervisor - they will find a suitable instructor for your needs.
