Led by The Ride Side’s team of certified instructors, our Aomori beginner snowboard camp is designed to help you learn to snowboard with a fun like-minded group who just like you, are eager to pick up and improve in the sport.
With our in-depth knowledge of the mountains, we know the best slopes to facilitate a safe and effective learning environment, according to your skill level.
All are welcome, from complete first-timers with no experience to anyone who is still looking to improve and perfect their S-turns.

Learn to link you turns and find flow in your movements. This is where you really start to fall in love with snowboarding.

Explore the rest of the mountain with your new skills. Get the chance to try out steeper terrain and attempt basic freestyle tricks. On a good powder day, you'll get a taste of what powder riding can feel like.
Your instructors aren’t just faces you’ll see on the slopes; they also double up as your hosts who will show you around the resort for the week. Meaning you will explore and learn with the same people on and off the slopes, for the most wholesome and enjoyable learning experience.
You’ll ride, eat, drink, and hang out with these newfound companions through the week, forging friendships that will last a lifetime alongside these like-minded travellers. After all, everyone here shares a common goal: to create unforgettable memories on the mountain.
With your new found riding skills, we take you to another hidden gem of a resort nearby. With wide open runs and a local Japanese vibe, this is sure to be one to remember.

We have designed several programmes in Aomori to cater to all skill levels, from an absolute first timer all the way to advanced riders.
Regardless of your experience, we guarantee you will have a blast, specially designed for your skill level. Both programmes are suitable for individuals, friends and families.
Our programmes will be run concurrently with each other, with all participants of both programmes in the same accommodation.
This allows you to join us as a group of family or friends with different skill levels, while still joining in a programme most suited to your skill level.
You will be together each day and only split up during the daily programme lessons and guiding.
