SPRING CAMP BOOKINGS
Club Fuyu (ski & snowboard) meet at 9:45am by the red flags at the on-snow meeting area near the base of the Magic Carpet lift outside the Village Gondola Station in LOTTE ARAI RESORT.
Your child’s instructor will welcome them to the program and check their prior experience and goals. Then the group will depart for on-snow skiing/snowboarding around the resort. Lunch will be provided at one of the resort restaurants.
We try to offer as much consistency as possible by keeping the same instructor with the same group each day. It is possible occasional changes may occur due to our weekly roster change-over, or if your child progresses at rate different to the rest of the group.
Club Fuyu is run throughout LOTTE ARAI RESORT.
A valid LOTTE ARAI RESORT lift pass is required for all participants. Lift tickets are not automatically included in the lesson cost, but are available for purchase at the resort.
Our team of instructors will welcome children at the on-snow meeting area and check their general skiing ability level and goals. They will then join children into the most appropriate group to join experienced-beginner, intermediate or advanced. Club Fuyu features a maximum of 5 children per instructor.
For the best experience we recommend all children going into the appropriate level group, even if this means being apart from their friends or siblings, however if two children would like to stay together in the same group may do so. In this case they will be placed into a group of the ability level of the lower child. The stronger level child may find the group a little slow, but their instructor will give them more challenging things to try to continue having fun and improving.
For the best learning experience 6 year old children should generally go in the 3-6 year old Mini Mountaineers program. If your child is close to 7 years old and is fairly tall for their age they may be able to join Club Fuyu upon request. The reason for the age group separations is that older children have more muscle and cognitive development, and skiing speed is different to younger children.
Club is offered full-day only. The reason for this is the full-day allows the group to stay out on the mountain for the whole day and have lunch at one of the on-mountain restaurants, without wasting time returning to the meeting area. It also means children in groups progress at a similar rate to each other.
Yes almost all dietary requirements can be catered for. Please advise your child’s instructor of the details at the morning 9:45am meeting time.
Please advise our reservations team when making your booking. Please also meet your child’s instructor at 9:45am on the meeting area and provide any relevant information to them. Epi-Pens should be placed in a zipped-pocket on your child for the duration of the program.
- Both group and private lessons can be great depending on your goals and budget.
- Private lessons are the best for quickest skill improvement and for meeting personal goals, but are a higher price.
- Group programs are a great way to meet other skiers of a similar ability level during the program, and are a lower price.
- Yes. All our instructors speak either native or fluent English and all lessons are run in English. We have a large number of instructors from around the world, as well as from Japan.
- If you have a request for a private lesson in another language (French, German, Dutch, Swedish) please check with us for availability.
- If you are interested in lesson programs run in Japanese please let our reservations team know and they can recommend the Japanese snowsports school to you.
- Non-English speaking students should have an intermediate level of English to get the most out of the program.
For the parents of the children enrolled in our club fuyu program we are happy to offer a 10 percent discount off our private lessons for the duration of that time.
