Niseko Snowboard Lessons Information

Skills and Drills!


Our Niseko ski school only offers private lessons.   Why only private?  That way, the instructor can personalize each lesson to your exact needs.

In other group lessons you are herded together in large group lessons and the instructor can’t always offer individual advice to improve your specific needs.

Our private group lessons allow 1-4 people in the group. Lessons start at ¥18,000 for a 2 hour lesson; ¥27,000 for a 3 hour lesson and ¥47,000 for a full day of 6 hours.  The cost is the same whether your group is one or four people. (Extra charge per person for 2 hours: ¥ 2 000 / 3 hours: ¥ 3 000 / 6 hours: ¥ 6 000)



Our private lessons are generally available in 3 hour or 6 hour blocks.

3 hour lessons can be scheduled to start in either the morning (9am) or afternoon (1pm) or night skiing starting at 5pm.

6 hour lessons start at 9am and go until 4pm or can start at 1pm and finish at 8pm, allowing an hour for a meal break.

Custom start time and lesson times are available on request. Please contact us to arrange.
