Day 1: Hello Minakami
Meet The Learning Adventure’s ski rep at the airport and board your transfer to one of Japan’s top 3 ski destinations: Minakami. Drive through the beautiful winter landscapes surrounding Tokyo before arriving at the purpose-built lodge. Get fitted for our gear in preparation for the next day. Listen to a safety briefing from your ski rep who will ensure you are best prepared.
Day 2 – 5: Intensive Full Day Ski/Snowboard Lessons
Wake up bright and early ready to hit the slopes. Ski classes run every day from 10.30 to 12.30 and 13.30 to 15.30. Enjoy lunch on the slopes so that you have as much time to ski as possible. After jam-packed days of skiing, students can take part in various evening activities, including a traditional Taiko Drumming class, an interactive lecture about Japanese culture and history, a Japanese calligraphy class, and teambuilding games such as ‘It’s a Knockout’ and ‘Just Dance’.
Day 6: Rustic Japan
Replace your ski-boots for snowshoes and embark on a guided trek through stunning Mountain trails. Learn about the area’s wildlife including hibernation habits and diets. After a vigorous morning, settle down for a traditional folk-craft session at a local village after lunch. As your mountain adventure comes to an end, tonight you will take part in a reflection session and awards ceremony before enjoying some games. (Alternatively, your group may choose to do an onsen experience. Speak to a specialist to find out more.)
