Niseko Beginners Camps

The Niseko beginners camps operated by Freeride Lodge are the perfect introduction to the snow.

Join up to 20 other like-minded people staying in a warm and friendly westernised lodge where you will meet new life-long friends.

Everyone will be beginners (some who have never seen snow before) on the camp so you wont feel out-of-place if it is your first time to the snow.

You will learn how to ski or snowboard in a safe and fun environment and by the end of your time on the snow you will have the basics of skiing or snowboarding and will be inspired to return again and build on your newly acquired skills.

The lodge has separate male and female 4-person dorm rooms or private 2-person rooms if you prefer (extra cost).

The package includes just about everything down to snow clothing and even gloves as well as most meals and your ski/snowboard rentals and lift tickets.
