Diamond X Pro


Only our very finest, most experienced instructors and guides are selected to lead our premium, tailor-made DIAMOND X PRO snowsports lesson and guiding programme.

A wealth of knowledge of Niseko allows your Diamond X Pro to thoughtfully curate further elements of your stay; local cuisine recommendations and an opportunity to explore the surrounding area.

An elegant service for all our valued guests, Hanazono Niseko is the leader in luxury snow experiences.

First Track Service

Unforgettable Powder Experience

Formerly only available with Hanazono Powder Guides, we now offer First Track Service to Diamond Pro guests. This will be an unforgettable moment of early morning, available only for a limited number of guests before the lifts are open to the public.

Attentive Service

Made-to-order Lessons

Diamond X Pro private lessons begin by listening to the guests' wishes and needs. Please feel free to contact us for skills you'd like to improve, where you'd like to ride, or things you are worried about.

Help You Create Unforgettable Travel Memories

In addition to the high-quality ski and snowboard lessons unique to NISS, we also help you enjoy Niseko outside the ski resort. Diamond X Pro provides services like introducing delicious restaurants as a concierge and recommending local spots.

Solid Experience and Achievements

NISS is the snowsports school directly managed by the ski resort founded in 2004. The highest quality service of Diamond Pro can only be achieved thanks to the know-how cultivated here for many years.
