We are currently only able to book lessons for guests who have already booked accommodation with Samurai Snow.
Make the most of your time on the mountain whether you ski once a year or more often - whatever your level, private instructors will focus on what you need to improve your skill, confidence and style.
For one-on-one lessons or private groups of friends/family, private instructors are ready to give you focused training specific to your needs to help you take it to the next level on skis or a snowboard.
If you are unsure where you would like to have your private lessons take place, please check out our Snow, Lift & Terrain Guide.
Hakuba Ski Concierge's signature lessons include pick up & drop off service from your accommodation and can take place anywhere in the Hakuba Valley (except for Happo One) - Hakuba 47, Goryu, Iwatake, Tsugaike, Norikura or Cortina.
Happo-one has a wide range of terrain with slopes perfect for any levels - easy slopes to learn the basics, steeper slopes to practice carving, long thigh-burning Olympic race runs, moguls, deep powder fields after a fresh dump and a well-maintained snow-park.
Goryu and Hakuba 47 are a combined ski hill at the Southern end of the Hakuba Valley. These two ski hills are quite different and compliment each other such that combined they offer a good variety of piste runs, freestyle park features, a small amount of off piste tree runs.
Iwatake ski area offers tremendous views and is ideal for intermediate skiers and snowboarders.
Tsugaike has a good variety of beginner and intermediate piste runs, a well maintained terrain park and some backcountry terrain suitable for those less experienced in backcountry skiing and snowboarding.
Cortina is not the largest resort but does have some impressive terrain and boasts the most snowfall and the most progressive off piste policy of any ski area in the Valley – the best choice on a powder day.
The Hakuba Valley is made up of 10 separate ski areas. Each ski area has it’s own distinct character and are well connected via the extensive free shuttle bus system.
