Niseko Black Private Lessons


Half Day - 3hrs Lesson

Starting time options - 08:30 / 09:00 / 09:30 (more options in Off Peak)

Full Day - 7hrs Lesson

Starting time options - 08:30 / 09:00 / 09:30 / 10:00 (more options upon request)

A full day gives us time to better assess your strengths and weaknesses in order to improve your technique and your understanding of terrain, conditions and mountain safety.

Whether you are just starting out for the first time, or looking to gain confidence through deep powder and tight trees, a full day gives you the time to work closely with your personal coach and explore more of the resort.

With a flexible start time and 6 hours teaching plus 1 hour break, this lesson type will allow you to reach your goals efficiently with expert instructors.

Premium Private - 4hrs Lesson

Starting time options - 08:30 / 13:00 / 13:30 (more options in Off Peak)
