Day 1It’s go time! When you land at Sapporo New Chitose Airport your private transfer will be waiting to take you on the final 2 hr 30 mins journey to Niseko. Take some time to get settled into your hotel before Rhythm picks you back up. We’ll then head to our Base store for your gear fitting so you’re ready to hit the mountain the next morning.
Day 2First day on the hill, your instructor will meet you at your hotel or on snow, and don’t stress they’ll have your lift tickets ready to go. We’ll ease you into it today, your instructor will take you through all the basics and will aim to have you confidently stopping and learning to ride lifts, hopefully you’ll also be getting a few turns in by the end of the first day.
Day 3

You’ve now spent a full day with your coach, so they will have a good understanding of how you’re developing and will focus on getting you comfortable linking turns on green terrain today. This can be a really exciting day as your expert instructor fast tracks your learning so you can make the most of the mountain sooner.

We recommend ending the day in traditional Hokkaido style with a visit to a local onsen. Your muscles will thank you!

Day 4

It’s the third and final day – time to enjoy all your hard work! You should be turning by now, and ready to start exploring more areas of the resort. Your instructor will select the right runs for you based on your progress, and they will make sure your final day is filled with high fives and smiles. 

Day 5

And before you know it, it’s time to head home. When you checkout of your hotel you can leave your rental gear there and we will arrange the pick-up for you, zero hassle. Take some time to enjoy your last breakfast and enjoy the final views of beautiful Mt Yotei before you’re picked up in your private transfer to head back to Sapporo New Chitose Airport.
