PRIVATE LESSONS

Make the most of your time on the slopes with a private lesson. For private lessons you pay for the instructor, not per participant. You can have up to eight participants in one class for the same price as one participant. This is the BEST way to improve fast with more time working on your skills. Whether you are a first timer or an experienced skier looking to improve on technique or get rid of bad habits we have an instructor that will suit your needs.

Instructors are limited so it is recommended to make a booking well in advance.

Nozawa backcountry tours

Nozawa's ONLY English backcountry guide service!

Make the most of your powder time at Nozawa by hiring a professional mountain guide to safely guide you around Nozawa's backcountry.
BC tours are the best way to learn about Nozawa and surrounding area stashes and our crew of highly experienced international guides will ensure you have an amazing day!

We keep the group sizes small to maximize the riding time and freshies! It is best if you have a group with ability levels that are relatively close so we can customize the terrain for you.

If you like exploring then make the most of your time by booking multiple days and we can show you around some of the hidden gems at other nearby resorts. (Other resort trips only available for those booking more than 1 day of tours.)
