We have just had a week skiing at Furano with ski instruction from FISS for the kidsand some adults most days. Naoko who is one of the organisers was so accommodating, matching the right ski instructors with the various level groups. It is all private lessons but the same price per hour whether you have one or more in the group so we had several groups with 3-4 kids of the same level in them which worked so well. Tracey was fantastic for the beginners and the boys had a lot of fun with Ricky. Girls had lots of fun with Naoko instructing today. The Mountain closed one day and they happily refunded us for this. Customer service was A+++++. All English speaking. Make sure you book well in advance as it books out.

The standard of instruction was excellent and the rates were competitive. The instructor was great at identifying individual strengths and weaknesses and building confidence (which is, after all, what skiing is mostly about).

We booked FISS for a 2-hour family ski lesson with our 6-year-old son, and child care for our 1-year-old. Our instructor was friendly, patient and experienced, adjusting the lesson to suit our individual needs and speed of learning. I was happy with the child care services. The child carers were gentle and experienced with young children, and our daughter was happy with them (for the most part - she hated parting from us in the morning). We stayed at the New Furano Prince Hotel, and the complimentary pick-up service for the child care was handy on the days when we wanted to stay in the Furano Zone. Booking was easy, and I appreciated the quick response time by email (I get a reply usually within a day). The childcare facility is quite small and bookings get filled up quickly (as it is to date the only day care facility in Furano)

Spent 14 days at Furano and arranged ski lessons with FISS for Sarah, Tom & Rob whilst we were there. We were staying at the New Furano Prince Hotel and in spite of FISS having their base at Kitanome it was no problem to meet us at our Hotel. These guys really are at the top of their game. From booking through to lessons everything was a breeze. FISS provide a highly polished service with some of the highest qualified instructors you could find 'anywhere'. We were lucky enough to have Jana & Jiri. They were both outstanding and made our experience equally so. If your looking for ski lessons, no matter what your level is, we recommend FISS unconditionally.
