Get your Golden Ticket! 

With winter now in full swing and such a fantastic start to the snow season, there has never been a better time to learn to ski and snowboard in Australia! 

Little Shredders is the brand new initiative from Ski and Snowboard Australia which is providing children all over Australia the opportunity to learn basic snowsports skills within the school grounds. 

The unique program which has never been seen before in Australia allows children of all ages to learn about balance, snow safety, spatial awareness, teamwork and communication; all while they are in the school yard or gym. 

In addition to the Little Shredders program, Australian alpine resorts have been instrumental in establishing a world’s first transition opportunity for all children who complete this unique program – the Golden Ticket! 

The Golden Ticket initiative provides every child that completes a Little Shredders program with a complimentary on-snow experience at an Australian resort of their choice!  

The free Golden Ticket offer is valued at up to $300 and includes:  

·       2-day lift pass

·       2-day ski or snowboard equipment hire pack

·       Lessons from a qualified instructor  

Mount Buller, Thredbo, Mount Hotham, Falls Creek, Perisher, Selwyn Snow Resort and Charlotte Pass are all part of the Golden Ticket initiative that provides an opportunity for children to transition from the Little Shredders program to an on-snow resort based activity.  

“It’s an amazingly generous investment from the Australian resorts and outlines the dedication that Australian alpine resorts have to help grow snowsports across the country. 

“We encourage parents to take up this offer and get their children involved in their first snow experience, which no doubt will be the first of many”, said Nick Frayne, National Participation and Sport Development Manager, Ski & Snowboard Australia.  

The Little Shredders program, aimed at providing Australia’s first off-snow experience, is available to every child and every single primary school across the country.  

Don’t let your school miss out on giving students a Golden Ticket to a free snow experience!
