Jane, Great Britain

Professional instructor who kept the lesson fun and at a level appropriate to our abilities. Given advice that has directly helped improve my skiing.

NISS is a great school. NISS is based out of Hanazono, which has less crowded slopes that are quite good for beginners learning to snowboard. Also has a large dedicated magic carpet area that is excellent for beginners.
