With so many ski and snowboard schools in the Niseko area, what makes Hokkaido Core Snow Sports different?

We think a lot!

We love skiing and snowboarding and we want you to love it too.  The founders of Hokkaido Core have been in the industry for a long time, and we've seen how other ski schools operate.  They hire average instructors and provide an inconsistent level of service.  To give you the best experience possible while visiting Niseko, we do things differently.
