Each southern hemisphere winter we are based at Falls Creek, Australia, where Zac is available on request for a private snowboard lesson to get you ready for the northern hemisphere. We also have great ski instructors on offer as well.
Our purpose is to educate and excite others through mountain exploration. We want to pass on all the skills needed to allow people to reach bigger and better terrain. We want to not only give you the skills but also an unforgettable mountain experience where you immerse yourself in the local culture, food and a community of passionate people.
Our goal is to develop a community of passionate people who are actively enjoying and appreciating what mountains have to offer. We want to be responsible for improving your outdoor abilities to allow you to explore more of the mountains, go steeper, deeper and higher.
