From beginner to advanced riders, everyone benefits from lessons.

Ski School - Hanazono Area

Niseko ski schools offer a comprehensive collection of programs in a fun & safe learning environment.

The nearby Hanazono area may be better for kids and true beginners wanting a less crowded area to learn. You can either ski across from Hirafu or catch the HANAZONO Shuttle Bus, which is in operation between Hirafu and HANAZONO every 20 mins between the hours of 7:50am and 5:10pm. A short 15-minute ride takes you to the lesson area.
