    Hi All,

    It has been a while since we have gone skiing, and taking my two youngest to Perisher in 5 weeks (2nd week of August). They are 12 and 14 and have skied when they were much younger, so really will be like first time for them again.

    My question, which area at Perisher will be best for their 2hr/3hr lessons? One boy will Ski the other Snowboard.

    We are only on the snow for 4 days, and the website booking doesn't seem to cater for a 4 day ticket with a mix of Blue Cow and Perisher (ie.. have to do two x 2 days, which is more expensive).

    Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Cheers, Justin and Jenny

    Where are you staying? It will affect logistics.

    Blue Cow - it should be relatively quieter and there's some easily accessible green runs and areas that move nicely into Blues. Perisher Front valley can be absolute mayhem!

    I'd recommend having a good play with the Perisher website for your holiday dates before deciding.

    As far as I can tell, in August Perisher are only offering adult group lessons from Front Valley, with kids' lessons being available at either Smiggin Holes or Blue Cow.

    Next, decide if you need gear hire or not. Without gear hire, the cost is the same for a ticket for Smiggin Holes and Blue Cow. With hire, Blue Cow is $22 dearer, but this includes daily skitube use.

    Yep I just noticed that there are no kid lessons in August, so Blue Cow it is. Thanks for comments, appreciate it.
