For Pete, it’s more than just about developing better technique or skiing faster, it’s all about having an enjoyable, fun ski holiday with a balanced mix of not only being taught by high level and experienced instructors and developing stronger skills, but also relaxing into different atmospheres, finding new and exciting places to visit, and tasting the amazing cuisines on offer while making a myriad of new friends. All while Experiencing this amazing and wonderful Japanese Culture.

Some of the previous seasons’ crazy team
From far left: Magic Andrew snowboard – Crazy Ming Ski – Boss Pete Ski – China Jack Ski.
Andrew is from London, and is so passionate about his teaching and riding. Guaranteed to get you riding first day.
Ming is from Hong Kong where there is no snow, thankfully he came to join us in Madarao. Has an amazing sense of humour and loves teaching kids.
Pete, well not much to say as it’s all been said above.
Jumpin’ Jack Flash wanted to become an amazing web designer, until he became a ski instructor just three seasons ago. Jack is animated, enthusiastic and full of fun and he knows how to inject excitement into his lessons. In fact, that is one of the things with our instructors is, they are not only chosen for their skiing and snowboarding skills and teaching abilities, but also for how they are able to make the lesson fun, and a great place to be with their clients wanting to come back for more. Well done team, you are awesome. And this is only a third of the crew.
