    Texy, now that would be being sensible.
    Sorry I've added some more. You know where the last ones are.
    That was early April 2010 actually.

    Gn how would I go about accessing them then if they no longer work for the ski school? What charges would they be charging? Same as ski school? Would it be cheaper because it would have to be cash in hand and how would i know they are any good?

    Not a bad thought, but I'm a complete noob when it comes to OS skiing, this will be our first foray. Only ever skiied/boarded in Australia.

    Depending on where you are staying the property managers will have connections with people and could organise lessons for you, definitely at discounted rates from peak season. There are bi-lingual Japanese instructors as well who are here year round that will do private lessons. Everything can still be organised it's just not quite as easy as in peak season. You need to be a little more independent coming at that time of the season. I'd also recommend having a hire car. Not essential but would make your stay much more enjoyable.

    Thanks GN, I'll keep thinking about it then. Without shuttles we would do a hire car, kids are a little too small for hefty walking. Cheers.
