Amazing ski instructors. Kids absolutely enjoyed skiing and learned a lot in just a few days.
My 3 boys and I had a group private snowboarding lesson. Our instructor, Billy, was fantastic. He was prompt, really friendly, great with the kids, and very patient!
Fantastic...Totally professional ski school teachers are awesome with the little ones. Seems to be the same teachers each year... This school is the reason we love it in Hirafu!
