One of the best ways to improve your skiing or boarding—and get a lot more out of the sports—is by taking lessons at one of Myoko's ski schools. Three local schools have English-speaking staff, with programs covering everything from children's lessons, group and private lessons, skiing, snowboarding and Telemark skiing, to backcountry tours and hiking.

Yodel Ski School
The Yodel Snow School was established in 1960, so we have been introducing the joy of snow sports in this magnificent natural setting for half a century. We offer professional training in skiing and snowboarding, and can introduce you to powder and backcountry skiing and boarding, as well as provide snowshoe tours into the quiet areas outside the ski runs.

Our highly qualified, professional instructors will guide you around the many, highly varied ski runs, and help you develop your skills and increase your enjoyment. Open our door, and friendly smiles will always greet you!

Dancing Snow Guide Center and Telemark Ski School
Dancing Snow is a new center emerging from the oldest telemark ski school in Japan, and the longest-running guide center in Myoko, but now with a new focus on serving both Japanese and international clients. The director and head guide has more than 15 years of guiding and teaching experience in Myoko.


Dancing Snow's experienced, trained guides, most of whom are bilingual, are experts in bringing guests on exciting (yet very safety-conscious) backcountry tours in the remarkable Myoko peaks. The staff have advanced avalanche, mountaineering and first aid training. We provide a regular series of tours weekly for many levels of skiers, snow hiking (excellent even for non-skiers), backcountry training and educational courses, and more.


We want to work with you to create the tour that meets your interests and abilities!
