Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy the winter break in a winter school? You’ll be pushing away the boredom and you’ll also enjoy having a memorable time of your life! This is possible in Japan’s top ski destination, Niseko. Several schools offer internationally certified multilingual instructors such as Niseko Kids Snow School and Niseko Winterlab.
Niseko Kids Snow School is located in Niseko Village, which sits within the Niseko United ski area. The location at the base of Mount Niseko allows easy access to interlinked ski resorts and boasts a huge terrain. The school caters to children age 1-6. Private ski lessons plus daycare facilities are available. Niseko Kids Daycare Guide provides guideline on what to bring during the day. It is strongly recommended to make a reservation especially during the peak season (December 15, 2015-February 20, 2016). It is important to arrive at the Snow School with your confirmation email of the booking 30 minutes before the start of class. Take note that parents need to pick-up their kids on time. Failing to do so will result in a penalty of 3,000 yen each 30 minutes.
Niseko Winterlab is yet another Snow School covering the entire Niseko United area with the internationally certified instructors. The school prides itself on safety, personal focus and attention. Ski lessons and snowboard lessons are very flexible. Apart from the fixed schedule, you can also start on a different time if you wish. The school offers schedule flexibility to cater to all of its guest’s needs. If you want to go around and explore the powder-snow of Niseko, you can join Backcountry Powder Tours which usually takes one day. The terrain chosen will depend on the experience level of the guest. However, avalanche safety gears are advisable outside of the resort boundaries consisting of a trans-receiver, shovel and probe. These are considered mandatory.
Winter is already almost here! Why not book now for that unforgettable winter experience full of fun and enjoyment for you and your family.
