Ski mountain snow
30 Sep

First time skier? Don’t let that stop you hitting the slopes this winter!

If you are a snow sports novice a ski holiday is the best opportunity to get lessons and some sustained practice in. You’ll be a pro on the snow before you know it! To help, we’ve put together some tips for planning the best beginner skiing trip: 


  • Rent equipment. Buying ski equipment can be pricey and is only for committed, regular skiers. If you’re just starting out it’s best to rent, at least for your first time round. It will also save you some suitcase space! There are plenty of rental shops in Niseko that can offer advice and get you kitted out so you are slope-ready! 
  • Book some lessons. Learning to ski is best done with professionals. No matter how experienced your friends and family are, if they’re not ski instructors then they’re probably not best placed to teach you how it’s done (not to mention it will eat up time they could be using to enjoy the powder themselves). Lessons in English are available to book in Niseko – discounts are often available when pre-booking so get planning! 
  • Prepare! A day on the slopes can be tiring, so if you’re not particularly active try and build up some stamina before your trip. Watch some YouTube videos so you know what to expect. You could even have a practice at a local dry slope so you’ve got a bit of experience to build on. 
  • Stay somewhere convenient and comfortable. After an exhilarating day on the snow you’ll want a warm, comfortable Niseko hotel environment in which to rest and, importantly, you won’t want to travel too far to get there! We have some of the best value accommodation in Niseko – cosy, comforting and close to the action. Click here to book and start getting excited for your trip! 

Looking forward to meet you !
