    Looking for any recommendations re: Niseko ski lessons. Intermediate adult would be the level.
    Thanks

    Loads of Go Snow instructors are also Perisher instructors, if you’ve got a favourite there then you may be in luck and have them be in Niseko.

    I like the guys at Hokkaido Mountain Experience, and also Japan Powder Connection - they do basic lessons as well, but I tend to use them because of their experience in Powder snow, day tripping and backcountry adventures. They also don’t have the level 1 just getting started instructors that the big ski schools have (that are a necessary part of the whole industry), so you know you’re getting a good instructor every time.

    But there are loads of options out there for an intermediate adult.

    NISS and NBS also...
