Snowcountry Learn to Ski & Snowboard Packages Overview

With annual snowfalls in excess of 10 metres at most of its ski resorts and over a dozen ski areas in close proximity, Echigo-Yuzawa (aka Snow Country) is an ideal place to base yourself for a Japan ski holiday.

Snow Country Instructors is an international ski & snowboard school offering lessons with qualified instructors at all resorts in the Yuzawa region.

Ability Level & TerrainThis package is specifically aimed at beginner to intermediate skiers and boarders wanting to take their skiing & riding to the next level. You will have your own instructor (max group 4 guests per instructor) who will help you to take your skiing and boarding to the next level and beyond.

All terrain is on-piste on gentle to moderate slopes that are ideally suited to learning.

Tour DurationThese packages are for a minimum of 2 nights & 2 days. It should be noted that because of the proximity of these resorts to Tokyo, they can get quite busy on weekends and the cost of accommodation increases substantially due to the high demand. It is therefore recommended that these packages take place from Sunday night through to Thursday night (however weekends can also be added as part of the package if required; subject to rooms being available).

Solos and GroupsThis package is specifically for families. If you are a solo traveler or group of adults looking for a beginner package see the Snowcountry Beginner Package.

PricingThe "from price" is a guide based on family-share occupancy (2 adults & 2 children) on a 2-day / 2-night package. Please enquire for a quote for your group size and duration.
