As the region's number one coaching academy, Niseko Academy has three facets to it: instructor training, powder guiding and a premier private lesson service.

As the Instructor Training Academy, we 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.
