Course Overview

All Course Inclusions

Our courses are designed to encompass everything you need to spend a winter season away in the snow.

Resort Manager and Local Team

Your local team is onsite and available through the whole season to help with everything. Starting with your airport pickup to ensuring you know where to be and when, providing assistance with anything that arises and guiding you through all of the local experiences.

The Tokyo Ryoko

Once you arrive in Japan you will embark on a 3-day / 2-night Tokyo Experience with a cultural awareness breakfast, sightseeing and plenty of seasonal preparation & support. We'll meet you at the airport and get your gear transferred to Niseko. Transportation, accommodation and group meals are included.

Training, Exams & Certifications

After settling into Niseko you will start your coaching with our top level trainers. All groups are at a 8:1 ratio making it easier for you to get tailored support. You'll be training 6 hours/day with days off to rest and practice. All training and exams are included. All certifications are through the New Zealand certifying bodies NZSIA and SBINZ which are highly regarded and accepted worldwide.

Accommodation & Season Pass

Accommodation for the program duration is included. You'll be staying in Kutchan which is a quick drive to the resort with dedicated transport. You'll be 5 minutes away from the restaurants, bars and grocery stores. Rooms are twin or four share with others on the program. There is a full kitchen, dining room, lounges and gear storage. Your season pass provides you with access to all 4 resorts in Niseko.

Video & Photo

We'll be out there getting heaps of video and photos during your training and free skiing/riding. You'll have full access to everything and we'll put some shred and progression videos together so you can see and share your development over the season. We will provide video analysis to help fine tune your technique.

Meals & Outings

Food is such an integral part of the Niseko experience. We’ll be exploring the different restaurants and hot spots Niseko has to offer as part of our Japanese Culinary Experience. Meals are self-catered and there is a full kitchen and a number of supermarkets close by. We’ll also travel to Sapporo for the Snow Festival and some karaoke (when in Japan…you sing!)

Industry Exposure & Future Seasons

We'll be inviting industry veterans to a few of our group dinners to give you insight and help answer any questions. For finding work as an instructor we will help you prepare and put a plan together. We'll review your CV, help you create a introduction video for hiring managers, walk you through visa applications and leverage our international network for job placement.


We are so confident that your skills will improve so dramatically through our program that if you attend all of our training days and you feel that you aren’t where you want to be, we’ll provide you with an additional 5 days of training that you can use to continue working on any specific skill of your choice. But we’re pretty sure your Insta feed will be so full of shred that everyone will be in awe of your new mad skills.
