We realize that Niseko is all about the powder, that’s why we have chosen to deal with two of the most distinguished instructing companies based in the village.

The boutique Pro Powder company caters for the powder hound trying to master the light dry powder as well as teaching beginners the basics of skiing/boarding. Fresh Powder can book either company on your behalf or alternatively please feel free to contact either company directly.

The school may also be easily accessed via beginner runs from the Hirafu Gondola. NISS is well known for its children's "Tic Tac" (3-6 years) and "Yuki Skiers" (7-14 years) programs. The school also offers a family special, with 2 for 1 Adult group lessons for parents with kids in 3 day programs or more. Pre-bookings for NISS must be made before your final payment is due, and can be paid together with the final invoice. Group lesson times are usually 10:00-12:30 for the morning session and 10:00-15:30 for the afternoon session, whilst children sessions usually begin half an hour earlier at 09:30.
