What clients say
Time to brush up the skills Hubby and I had a whole day ski lesson with Spencer. A very small group which was great. Spencer was a fabulous teacher, with much patience. His skiing knowledge was A1. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Shiga International Ski School, they are very professional, affordable and experienced.

Excellent! Right from the get go I had great service from Shiga International Ski School. Robel was prompt in replying to my email queries and was kind enough to pick my friend and I up on our first day. My first instructor was Rafel from Poland - as a beginner moving towards intermediate Rafel totally took me out of my comfort zone and challenged me. I really enjoyed the full day lesson and was absolutely shattered at the end of the day. My second instructor was Spencer from the States. Again another great full day lesson. We concentrated on technique and some base skill work which I really enjoyed. All in all I came away from the two full days feeling much more confident with myself and my ability to stay upright and not hurt myself while navigating some of those green slopes that really aren't green 🙂

Awesome ski school! We just spent Chinese New Year in Okushiga Kogen. The Shiga Ski school was a fantastic experience that made the holiday. My girls (5 and 8) did 5 full days of lessons. The instructors made skiing fun, enjoyable and improved their skiing. Thanks to Aki, Felix and Joe for their focus and efforts. Robel runs a great operation and ensures the girls had small class numbers which is a rarity in Japan and at Chinese New Year. Book without hesitation if in the area.

Excellent coach and management! Booked a private 1:1 3 hours snowboarding lesson with SISS and I am impressed with the management’s prompt replies on my queries via email. Robel were patient even when I sent multiple queries. But the best part of SISS was the coach I was assigned to, Aki. Aki were very friendly and encouraging, attentive to details to correct my posture and I manage to do a S-turn within the first hour. So so happy I engaged SISS and ofcos thank you coach Aki!

One of the best ski schools my kids have been to My kids have attended many ski schools across the world over the years and I can say that the English speaking ski school at Okushiga Kogen is one of the very best. Now I can start by saying the prices are not cheap but when you see what you get you will not be disappointed. We had booked 3 kids (aged 5, 10 and 13) in for lessons beforehand with Robel and we were very impressed with the quality of instructors and service received. This is not a big factory ski school with fancy dining rooms and kid toilets but it is a very personalised option and the kids had a wonderful time. My 5 year old got to hang out with the lovely Laura for 3 full days and he is still talking about her. We were lucky that the mountain was quiet and the kids got very personalised attention. I was very pleased to see there was no quip about low numbers and therefore reduced hours! (like at some ski schools where they reduce the time if the numbers are low or make you pay for private lessons). thankyou Robel - we've already recommended you guys to other skiers!
