The English-speaking instructors at Evergreen Ski School will make sure you are safe and have a great time.
Private lessons offer focused instruction suitable for everyone from total beginners through to advanced skiers and boarders.
Lessons can be tailored based on your choice of terrain and technique you want to cover - skiing, snowboard, telemark, racing, terrain park, half pipe, carving or freestyle.
Powder Clinic Lessons
In this powder skills specific clinic we meet early in the morning, catch the first gondola and are rewarded with fresh tracks while the rest of the masses are just rising. With a professional instructor who knows the best powder stashes for the Hakuba Japan area, we will work on powder skiing techniques, tree skiing, and cover some safety concerns while skiing in powder.
The Powder Clinic lesson is ideal for those with little powder experience who want to go on a backcountry tour in due course or just enjoy Hakuba's world-class powder. Once you ride the untouched light powder runs you will know where the addiction comes from. A desire for fresh tracks and a minimum intermediate skill level are all that is needed to get that one of a kind feeling.
Ability Level: You should be at least intermediate level on groomed runs before participating in our First Tracks.
Lesson Type: Powder Clinic is available in Jump Start or First Tracks time slots.
On Mountain Orientation
Just by looking at the respective ski resort maps, you will notice months of possible ski and snowboarding options. Our mountain guiding service finds the best ski and snowboard runs based on your ability.
We can guide your group to some of Hakuba’s best ski resorts and and show you how to better understand the Hakuba mountains: where to find continuous north facing slopes, where to find nicely spaced trees with powder stashes, terrain parks, tasty restaurants/bars, and our staff are always good about giving advice for your time in Japan.
Private On-Mountain Guiding is available with all of our Private Lesson Products. Just let us know that you would like guiding when making a booking and we will help you choose the best possible product and location to help you get exactly what you’d like out of your ski/snowboard holiday.
