Hakuba Ski & Snowboard Lessons
It is easy to get ski or snowboard lessons in English in Hakuba. You can get either private or group lessons. If there are just 1 or 2 of you group lessons will be the cheaper option and if you are beginners then a group lesson is probably the way to go-sometimes it helps to watch other beginners either doing the right thing or completely messing it up. For advanced riders, they will probably prefer private lessons but a group lesson is worth considering as often there will only be 2 or 3 in the group. Be careful; lessons do NOT include rental equipment or lift passes. •A group lesson ranges from ¥6,000 for a 2 hr lesson up to ¥9,000 or so for a 2 1/2 hour lesson. Normally a group size will be 3-8, but this will depend on the skill level. Lower skill levels usually have more students and advanced riders may find there are only 2 or 3 students in the group making this a viable alternative to paying for a private lesson. •Private lessons start from ¥18,000 for a 2 hr lesson and is generally about ¥50,000 yen for a whole day. No point in doing a private lesson if the members of your group are all different skill levels-do group lessons instead. Kids are taught in separate groups to the adults and the way to go is to get the full day lessons which have supervised lunch periods, so that you can dump them at the school and run off to do your own thing. They will enjoy hanging out with the other kids. Kids lessons normally start from 5yrs for skiing and 7 or 8 for snowboarding.
