    Heading back to Nozawa in Jan. Got a full day lesson for the family with the official ski school last year but its pretty pricey. Other than Nozawa Holidays does anyone know of a channel for accessing other ski instructors at Nozawa? cheers.

    There's Canyons - but also exxy. There was an Uber style instructor pool there but can't find any link.

    thanks.. I just found this.. which is about 4000 yen cheaper for a 1/2 day. Not sure if this is what you may have been referring to. Not clear exactly what this outfit is.. https://www.samuraisnow.com/nozawa-private-lessons

    That's just a travel agency offering lessons from NSS. Not sure why there's a differential in price. Might be the Angus Taylor version. ;)
