Mountain Goats Programme
The Mountain Goats Programme is for children who will have ski or board lessons once or twice a day for more than 2 days. They will get to know their instructors well and vice versa and will progress their skills with regular, fun lessons.
By registering in the Mountain Goats Programme, initial Registration is $50 then all lessons are at the discounted price of $25. Register with the snow school at the ticket office.
They can have multiple lessons a day for as many days as you stay at Ōhau. The group size can be expected to be up to 8-10 skiers or boarders depending on the similarity of ability level.
We do expect children to be at an age such that they are able to ski or ride in a group with others. It is possible to start your children on the programme and they then find it a little hard then the registration can be refunded after the first lesson. Rest assured that the children are extremely well looked after but it is in a skiing sense not as an organized creche.
If you have children who have not skied or boarded before and you are only intending to stay a couple of days you may be best to start on the learners lifts with the Never Ever Package to see how your children like skiing or snowboarding and progress to the Development Package which includes all lifts, hire and group lesson.
Child / Youth rates apply to school children or 17 years and under. Lift passes are free for children 5 years and under. The Child / Youth rates apply for all other products. A school ID or birth certificate may be required.
