Niseko Academy pioneered the first instructor training and foreign (non-Japanese) certification courses In Japan. Permission was granted by the Japanese Ministry of sport in 2005 and the first courses were conducted in the 2006/2007 winter season.
One Big Niseko Academy Family
Unlike many instructor training courses around the world, Niseko Academy training is run by the owners of the company. We are involved personally in every aspect of the courses, from replying to your emails before you come, to the well-being of every participant whilst on the course itself… we’re out training with you on the snow and drinking with you in the bars after.
As the Academy is based year-round in Niseko, we know the area well. We know the locals, the culture and customs, and we even speak the language.
It is possible to ski or ride in many countries around the world, but Japan offers an amazing opportunity to experience a truly unique and exotic culture, while skiing and riding some of the best powder in the world. And Niseko is the cream of the crop!
