Ski and Snow Board Improvement Courses Nozawa Onsen Nagano Japan
On a one-week snow trip the time goes pretty quick. By the time you get to the snow get all your gear unpacked and sorted then hit the mountain, a few great days a few fun nights and before you know it you are packing again to head home.
You often probably hear yourself say I am going to work on certain aspects of my riding ability this trip but it all becomes a snowball blur. Why not take the time out for a dedicated improvement course to get your turns and timing to the next level.
This year we are running a few week long fun and fruitful Improvement courses in Nozawa for all ages and levels that will help you make the most of your mountain time and really enjoy all that our beautiful little ski town in the Japanese Alps has to offer.

The Coaches Ski Snowboard Improvement Courses Nozawa Japan
All of our coaching staff are Level 3 Instructors with at least 5 Years of instructing experience. They have also done multiple seasons in Nozawa Onsen so know the mountain very well and will show you all the best spots.
They will focus on the individual and work on and discuss with you what you want to improve and give the instruction and skills to get you there. Whether it is Park, Powder or just perfecting the basic turns they know all the tricks to have you riding better by the end of the week.
We will be having only small groups with maximum of 5 students per instructor so you will get the most out your experience. At this stage we hope to offer 3 levels in the programme Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced and as you progress you can move between the levels.
It will be a fun group and no doubt you will be best of friends by the end of the Course. Besides the Welcome Dinner there will be other activities and most people will probably end up going out for dinners together and could end up at a Karaoke Bar or two!
Don’t be afraid to come by yourself, there will be lots of individuals coming up and will be a great atmosphere to meet other like minded souls!

Review of the Ski Improvement Course by Steph Witts from Australia
As a first time visitor to Nozawa Onsen & a solo traveller/skier, my motivation to undertake the course was threefold. To become familiar with the mountain, to ski with similar skilled people & lastly, to improve on my skiing ability.
Pavel the Instructor did a superb job with the way the course was structured & conducted. His confident, friendly & ever encouraging approach to teaching me & the other attendees is to be highly commended.
I guess the challenge for any advanced course is to tweak any bad habits & improve on the students’ years of skiing. I learnt & built on my skills every single day. I am ever grateful that Pav has made me a better skier.
I can unreservedly say that all 3 motivations to attend the clinic have been achieved over & above my expectations.
I feel I know the mountain, I have enjoyed skiing with a nice bunch of skiers, whom I now call my friends. Most importantly, I have increased my abilities & confidence in skiing any terrain, anywhere.
Please keep me appraised of any future Nozawa Onsen Holidays improvement courses.
Yours sincerely & best regards
Feel free to email us too if any questions and can put you in touch with the course instructors too email; firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you to Nozawa Onsen and seeing you improve out of sight this season
