Snow Country Instructors aim to have one of the best teams of ski and snowboard coaches in Japan to look after you during your lesson in Yuzawa. We have a diverse team from all over the world who tend to have many years of experience and high level qualifications. The majority of our instructors are in Japan on ski instructor visas which means they need to prove about 10 seasons of experience to be eligible. This is one of the reasons taking a lesson with our team is so beneficial.
We are also trying to keep our prices in line with local Japanese ski schools. This combination of high quality and good value is something that we are proud of, and added to that, all our instructors offer exceptional customer service.
You can book with us in either English or Chinese. One of our booking staff will aim to get back to you as soon as possible, but please be aware that all our booking staff are also instructors, so during the season you might have to wait until we get off snow in the late afternoon. We can be reached via email (different addresses for each language), phone, or a variety of messaging apps.
If you are not sure where you would like your snowboard lesson, or what kind of ski lesson you would like, please let us know and we are happy to advise. There are lots of different snow resort options in and around Yuzawa. With the details set to your satisfaction we will book you into our system and assign you an instructor. You can expect to hear from your instructor via WhatsApp/Line/WeChat/etc the evening before the lesson. They will introduce themselves and reconfirm your booking details. Please feel free to deal with them directly if you need to make any last minute adjustments to meeting times/points/etc, or have questions on anything.
We will have arranged a meeting point with you. Should you be running behind schedule please let the instructor know. They may be able to help you. You should be changed with all your equipment and ready to go at the lesson start time, and also have arranged your lift ticket. The lesson fee covers the lesson only. If you need help with rental we are happy to advise
For payment you can settle up for the lessons in advance by bank transfer, credit card, or Paypal, or if you prefer to pay when you are in Japan you can pay for your lesson by cash, card, Paypal, or WeChatPay.
