          I highly recommend Niseko Supreme for guiding you around the Nisko ski area and beyond. They have a lot of first-hand knowledge about weather, snow conditions, and safety. They made sure our stay was packed with the best skiing/snowboarding possible. And their knowledge extends far beyond just skiing/snowboarding. They know a thing or two about the best onsens and restaurants.

          Teddy has been a great ski instructor with my children. She coached them over 2 seasons and was always super patient and kind with them. She was able to help them not only learn how to ski but to progress technically so that they had the confidence to tackle harder slopes. Juan also took the children for a few days and they also really enjoyed their lessons!

          Amazing instructors! They were full of positive energy, enthusiasm and encouragement, and are good at explaining the various movements and form so that it feels intuitive/is easy to understand. Took lessons with them over 5 days as a complete beginner and was happy with my progress by the end of it. I look forward to taking lessons from them again the next time I’m back in Niseko. Thanks Dejan and Jazmin! 🙂

          We signed up as total beginners with zero experience in skiing, and with only the warmest hearts to learn versus the sub zero temperatures in Niseko. Dejan showed us what skiing is all about, he was patient in teaching us the basics, and was fully professional from start to end. He was literally taking pictures for us in -10 degrees and encouraging us to enjoy the wonderful powder. Thank you Dejan and thank you Niseko Supreme for opening our eyes to the world of skiing. It was snow much fun ⛷️! We will look for you when we return!

          I would like to thank Coach dejan & coach Hiro-san. Snowboarding is nothing easy to learn, despite endless and endless of not executing proper techniques. Coach dejan was utterly patient and encouraging throughout the 2 days lessons. Taking care and attending to our needs. Coach dejan & coach Hiro-San treated us like we are family, i highly recommend Niseko Supreme for lessons in Snowboard/Skiing. I will definitely be back for lessons with Niseko Supreme and hopefully one day conquer a mountain. I wish nothing but the best for Dejan & Hiro-san, well done Niseko Supreme! Lastly, rental recommendations by Dejan & Hiro-san was a lifesaver. It was really affordable & professional to ensure the proper gears are issued so we can have a fun and safe experience with snowboarding and skiing. Once again, thank you coach Dejan & Coach Hiro-san

          We (my two kids, aged 9 and 5, and myself) had a truly wonderful experience learning to ski in Niseko with Teddy in February 2023. We were all beginners and yet with Teddy's guidance, we learnt quite a lot in just 3 days. We learnt to balance on our skis, comfortably take the ski lift and finally to manoeuvre the slopes by regulating the speed. At the end of the third of session, we were doing the green and easy red slopes (levels 2 and 3). My kids loved Teddy, especially my daughter who had a lot of fun screaming and playing in the snow with her. Teddy is excellent in giving the right technical guidance and has enormous patience. The two days that we were in a different resort from the one that we skied at, the team also provided transport for us. Looking forward to the next season when we can ski with her again.

          Skiing with these guys since few years and I must say that I learnt a lot in very short time. The lessons are fun and challenging at the same time so you can get the most out of whatever little time you have on the snow. I totally recommend this company for skiing lessons in Niseko. Good luck to Dejan and his team.

          NISEKO SKI RESORT

          Niseko is a popular ski resort located on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. It is known for its abundant snowfall and excellent powder skiing conditions, as well as its wide variety of terrain and modern lift infrastructure. The resort is made up of four main skiing areas, each with its own unique character and appeal: Annupuri, Hanazono, Hirafu, and Niseko Village.

           

          Hirafu is the largest and most developed of the four areas, and is known for its wide range of restaurants and accommodations, shops, small bars, lively nightlife and bustling atmosphere. It offers a mix of groomed runs and off-piste skiing, and is popular among a wide range of skiers and snowboarders.

          In Hirafu, you can access the ski slopes from three different locations: the Hirafu family chairlift (above Hotel Aya), the Hirafu Base Camp (next to the main bus station), and the Hirafu Gondola. The transition between ski resorts is easy. You can either ski, use the bus, or take a lesson with us and we will take you to your desired starting destination.

           

          Hanazono is located in the northeastern corner of the resort and is considered the best ski area for beginners due to its large flat area at the base of the resort and its brand new, luxurious and spacious lifts. Thanks to these features and its distance from the town, there are never really any crowds or long queues.

          On the other hand, Hanazono offers some of the best steepest and most challenging terrain in the area. It is also known for its excellent tree skiing and backcountry access, making it a favorite among advanced and expert skiers.

          In Hanazono, there is only one hotel, Park Hyatt, which is considered one of the most luxurious accommodations on the ski slopes, with ski-in and ski-out options. The resort features five restaurants within the Park Hyatt complex, as well as the Edge restaurant located at the base of the gondola and the new six-seater chairlift.

          Ski passes can be purchased at the Hanazono 308 building, which is located near the parking lot. The building also houses a children’s climbing wall, a kids’ daycare facility, a ski rental and retail shop, and a small but very tasty café shop.

          Access to Hanazono is easy. If you are a skilled skier and the lifts are open, you can easily ski to and from the other three resorts in Niseko. Alternatively, you can take a bus that runs every 20 minutes between Hirafu and Hanazono. But if you want a stress-free day, we also offer transportation from your hotel to your desired ski resort as part of our lessons.

           

          Annupuri is the southernmost of the four areas and is known for its wide, gentle slopes and great views of Mount Yotei. It is a popular destination for families and beginners, as well as intermediate skiers looking for a more relaxed experience.

          Access to Annupuri is possible by car (a 20-minute drive from Hirafu), by bus (although it can be a very long ride), or by skiing, if the highest lifts are operational. Alternatively, you can simply take a lesson with us and enjoy a stress-free ride to your desired destination.

          WEATHER IN NISEKO

          Niseko offers fantastic snow conditions throughout the winter. The most fresh snow falls in January and February. At that time, it is cold, foggy, and windy, but the snow quality is the best. In March, the weather is more stable, sometimes sunny with beautiful views of Mt. Yotei. April is the last month of the ski season in Niseko. The amount of snow decreases, but the snow quality is still good, although it can vary from year to year. During this time, temperatures can already rise above freezing and sunny days are more frequent, allowing for enjoying warmer weather on the slopes.
