    Location: GoSnow lessons start in the Gondola Area or the Ace Family Pair area. Beginner lessons will stay around the exclusive GoSnow Beginners Area (where the Magic Carpets are), while higher levels can hop straight onto the Gondola or the Ace Centre 4 Quad and head to other areas throughout the Niseko United resorts.

    Lesson size/Ability levels: Up to 6 Guests can join one private lesson. All participants must be of the same or similar age and ability level (please take a look at the ability levels chart below if you are unsure of your ability level) and must be on the same equipment (either ski or snowboard). Please note that GoSnow does not offer private lessons for groups with very different ages or ability levels (such as families with young children). In this case, separate lessons must be arranged. GoSnow are able to recommend other options that will allow you and your family to get the most out of your lessons.

    Young Children: All private lessons for children under the age of 6 are subject to approval by the GoSnow Snowsports Manager.
