Declare “Japan’s easiest ski resort to make a snowboard debut”! [Safe even for the first time! Snowboarding debut lesson is free every day】 Ryuoo Ski Park, which has many gentle slopes that are friendly to beginners, is visited by many people who are making their “snowboard debut”. I think there are quite a few people who were invited by their friends and came to the snowy mountains with courage, but were frustrated because they couldn’t ski well. We believe that the feeling of “I want to do it again!” after the first experience is an important factor to continue. At Ryuoo Ski Park, we want as many people as possible to know the fun of running through the snowy mountains on a snowboard, so we are holding a “snowboard debut lesson” every day for free so that you can start snowboarding with confidence! About 4,000 people made their snowboard debut last season at Ryuoo Ski Park. https://ryuoo.com/winter/
Basic skidding is also a lesson
The staff will also teach you how to get on and off the lift, so you can rest assured even if it’s your first time.
– Supervised by former Japan representative!
The lessons are supervised by Michiyo Hashimoto, who has experience representing Japan in the halfpipe at the 2002 Winter Olympics! We will carefully teach you how to put on a snowboard, get on and off the lift, and how to slide. Unlike general lessons, you practice in an area where staff resides, so you can practice until you are satisfied with no time limit.
You can practice uneasy getting on and off the lift with a practice lift that is a modified version of the actual lift, and work on relieving your anxiety.

●Helmet wearing status during snow sports
19.1% of snowboarders were wearing helmets at the time of injury, which is more than 25% lower than that of skiers. In addition, the percentage of those who are suspected of having hit their head hard is 13-15% for both skiing and snowboarding, so it is strongly recommended to wear a helmet when participating in winter sports.
The helmet wearing rate in Japan is far below the 80% of the helmet wearing rate in Europe and the United States.Ryuoo Ski Park will take the lead in spreading helmets during snow sports and expanding the winter sports population to enjoy snow sports safely. .

● Use “bern” for free helmet rental
Helmets from “bern” are used for free helmet rental. In 2004, the American helmet brand “bern” was born in the suburbs of Boston. We are particular about our own technology, and we are developing premium products that are not only safe but also have excellent design and fitting as one of fashion. In addition, it is also a big point that it is equipped with a removable inner so that it can be worn according to each scene and can be used comfortably all year round.
[New center house on the slopes]
A new center house will appear on the slopes. Inside the building, there is a ticket window and restrooms, a café in the morning, a hamburger in the afternoon, and a bar at night called “Spirits Grill.” There are counter seats where you can see the scenery, luxurious sofa seats, and a kids space on the 2nd floor. You can also use it for cafe breaks and lunches, and you can spend a relaxing time in the calm store.
[A superb view terrace and a stylish cafe restaurant at the top of the mountain] After a 10-minute walk in the air on the world’s largest ropeway, which can accommodate 166 people, there is an observation terrace “SORA terrace” where you can enjoy a superb view. You can overlook the Northern Alps and the Sea of Japan, and if the conditions are right, you can also meet the sea of clouds. The adjoining SORA terrace cafe has a fireplace and a stylish space that makes you think it’s a ski resort. You can take a break from skiing or snowboarding and enjoy the view of the snow outside while relaxing in the warm interior. [Image 12
At SORA terrace cafe, we offer original meals that can only be tasted here, such as “Unkai Pie Wrapped Soup” and “Kumo no Ue no Omurice”. “SORA coffee” with cloud-shaped marshmallows floating on SORA terrace’s original blended coffee is perfect for photos.

Because the summit of Ryuoo Ski Park is located at an altitude of 1,930m, the snow quality is fluffy powder! Even in the summit area, the beginner course is the main course, and you can experience skiing in a different space unique to the summit. Even if you have just started snowboarding, you can feel at ease and experience an extraordinary world.
