One of the best ski schools I have experienced!
Instructors are passionate, friendly and encouraging. We had private classes with Katherine and Luc. They are both great and able to come up with some useful tips in helping us to sharpen our skills.
Special thanks to Patrick: super responsive and detail-oriented. I have never encountered any ski school admin like him. Excellent services!
We will definitely come and have classes with the team again!
Thanks again! We really had a great time!

Our instructor Lucy taught us for 3 days and she’s the best ski instructor we ever met with good observation on our different ski capacities and able to give very practical advice accordingly. My children have moved from green slope to red in just 3 days . What a marvellous experience and it was not just about learning how to ski but also a truly memorable family time all together.

It was my first time to ski ever. Fortunately, I got the best and most talented English ski instructor the is from the snow country instructors group named Nyc(Nick) terrific guy and teacher and he make skiing as safe and fun as it should be. He will teach you everything from the proper handling of your gear to the proper form needed to help you glide through the snow and of course stop safely. Will even go the extra mile and take photos of you if you're a good student. Be sure to ask for him for that fun in the ice that you look forward to.

Our 5th time of training with Mike in Jan 2023, right after most of the restrictions of COVID were laxed and international flights started resuming.

Three years not even have a touch with snow, we were particularly cautious and tense. Mike took only an hour and a few runs to tune our muscles and regain the feelings on the snow which already exceeded our expectations (he emphasized that we and our feet should try feeling than solely thinking and forcing to the postures).

Having trained with him for a number of times, he knew we were flexible yet sometimes greedy to learn different skills, thus he wasted no time to led us 'feel' on various terrain and snow surfaces in the 3 day class, first day to recap and tune, easy and lovely powder ski in the morning on the second day based on the weather, basic carving drills in pm, and a mix of different landscape on the 3rd day such that we all felt so contented.

Last but not least, it was so precious of him to keep sharing his knowledge and experience to assess the conditions of snow pack, snow drift and weather, and how we should plan a ski route or what to determine if we should ski an ungroomed or off the piste area. This kind of information is very minimal and superficial for Asian recreational skiiers as we got far far less experience on big mountains and steep landscapes. We cannot be more thankful for what he shared in the training.

We would definitely come back and ski with Mike and the ski school, and in Yuzawa + Ischiuchi...

I was a bit nervous about going for a 4 day ski course but I must say we were truly lucky. Our coach was Dominika and she's an amazing teacher. At the end of the first day, our daughter Renee loved her and the next couple of days were amazing.

She was truly great with Renee and extremely patient with us. I'm not the easiest learner but the way she taught me and got me to ski was truly a great learning experience.

By the time we reached the last day, I was enjoying skiing. Such a great teacher. And the best thing she did was making us feel relax and enjoyed the learning process throughout the entire 4 days.

We hope to see her again next year in Yuzawa.

Love Snow Country Instructors and thank you Dominika! Thank you so much as well Patrick for your excellent suggestions and guidance. No regrets whatsoever in using the school!

As a first time skier, I had a great experience with Vega for 5 days. She is a patient, friendly and professonal coach. She explained the posture in details and encouraged me a lot.

Although the snow condition is not so good, I still had a very great time with her. I was very tense and nervous at the beginning, but Vega helped me to overcome it. In short, not much fear, lots of fun.

If I am coming back for my second time of skiing, I will definitely have Vega again.

This is our second year skiing and we were so fortunate to have Alberto as our instructor for 3 full days. Aside from having very good skiing skills, Alberto was a super nice person and was very patient. Noticing that we might have some bad postures or habits developed, he used many different ways or little games to help correcting our basics, yet still managed to make it fun. We, including our girls of 11 and 14 years old were able to challenge the intermediate level on day 2 and even went to the top of Iwappara on Day 3, all thanks to the effort and encouragement of Alberto! Once again thank you and will definitely hope to get help from Alberto in our next skiing trip!

My girlfriend and I were assigned Freddy to be our ski instructor from Snow Country during our recent trip at Yuzawa Nakazato ski resort. It was really amazing ! Even though we were absolute beginners, Freddy was very patient and his lessons were very structured. He taught us how to control our balance using our body weights, and the formula of “toes, hip, shoulder” which worked amazingly well when making turns. We did not fall much at all even though we were just beginners.

After just six hours of training, both of us were impressed that we could ski down the beginner’s slopes with ease and even made several turns along the way. We would definitely recommend Freddy from Snow Country to be your preferred instructor if you want to get a head start in skiing!

We had great two days skiing lesson with ski coach Vega this January. She gave great advice on which ski slope to go to, and how to bring my kids up to speed in no time! Both of my kids enjoyed the ski lesson a lot and we would love to have snow country instructor again when we visit Yuzawa! Thx Vega and Patrick!
