Joetsu Myoko Ski Schools & Ski Rentals


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!
