    Professional and patient tutor
    We are a beginners of snowboarding. The last time we went to snowboarding was 3 years ago in Korea. I am also a slow learner. We both are so happy to have Jimmy being our 2-half day tutor. He is patient and professional. He was very willing to explain when I asked questions. He was very understanding too. He pulled me up every time I fall. I finally could complete a S turn slowly and get off the lift properly at the end of the 2nd lesson.

    First Trip to Hokkaido
    My Dad and I really enjoyed our time here at Sansui and skiing with the hokkaido club. We had a lesson skiing with Babo and this really helped our skiing abilities as well as him showing us more of the resort slopes.( Just don’t ask Babo to go for a beer afterwards😂). I also had a snowboarding lesson for the first time with the lovely instructor Itzi, I’m not sure if that’s spelt correctly but she was very helpful with teaching me the basics of snowboarding and I really enjoyed the lesson. Thanks to Hokkaido Ski club for our time here with the lessons and we hope to return a lot again in the future.

    Best on the mountain for kids
    We had our 5-year-old daughter in a 3-day kid's club and she had a blast. No being stuck in pens or on the magic carpet like other ski schools. She was really well looked after by Kira and Cat who had her taking chairs and skiing confidently and enjoying every minute of it. Great location and we'll definitely book with them for our next trip.

My ski experience is a great one with Anders who never failed to encourage me whenever I did not believe in myself . I had 3 half days lessons with him and I enjoyed every moment of it . Time flew by quickly and I was amazed with each milestone I managed to fulfill .

I came to Niseko to accompany my teenage son to ski and I took up ski lessons for myself in December 2022. This is the best thing I have done for myself . I have a great time learning to ski with Anders who is the most kind , positive and patient instructor I had met . In the past , I had engage instructors for my kids before . So I knew having a good instructor would be important for any beginner. Anders was able to address every concern that I had and never once failed to answer any endless questions that I asked . I will be happy to engage him as my ski instructor again if I come to Niseko .

The ski staff who deserves special mention as well is Ming who is approachable and assisted me in every way during the gear fitting . Will is helpful in assisting my son to load his gear to the car when he needed to get to another ski slope to meet his friend .

During the scheduling of lessons , there is a mixed up in the lessons and it initially got me frustrated and upset . Miha came up to me the next day and apologised for the mistake. I thought it was a sincere one .

Anders , thank you once again for making my ski lessons a wonderful and enjoyable one . Hope to see you again the next ski season !

I have tried many schools before and nothing compares to the Hokkaido Ski Club, Miha, Anthea and everyone else. It is impossible to imagine Niseko without them and I genuinely improved year after year with them. They do not only “accompany” you on the mountain. They actually teach you and make you a better skier! Amazing results – thank you!

We were really impressed with the team at Hokkaido Ski Club. Our son’s first time on skis was a great experience for him and he was bombing down runs confidently after only a few lessons. Adir and Atsushi-san really excel when it comes to teaching young kids and making the experience fun. I would highly recommend them to any parent trying to impart a love of skiing at a young age.

In the middle of February I went for a ski holiday in Niseko. Usually I take an instructor for a few days every year to refresh my skills. I am a long time skier but I haven’t had an experience quite like it before.

Babo was very fun to ski with. His professional skiing and teaching skills made me very confident and I improved every day.

I will be coming back for sure

Thank you Babo!:)

My son Evan had so much fun and remarkable snow boarding experience with coach Adir at Niseko during Christmas. Adir is a very nice man with humor, professional and patience. Evan likes him a lot and I think lots of kids like him as well.
