    Instructor shawn was patient and taught me from zero. He gave me clear insturction and advice on how to improve. I am very happy with my progress and impressed by his teaching

    Choosing to ski at the GALA ski resort, the coach has the patience to teach and can master the beginners.

    I originally booked a coaching class in other places and later saw that the skiing coach was cheaper in klook. There are Chinese coaches who can also cooperate with Niigata's various snow fields. They are the team of the Snow Country coaching team. It was early in the morning, the 9:00 Shinkansen class was too late to help me change to 10 points. The coach itself was very careful. The mother was slower or patient. This skiing class is worth the first time. The ski instructor really can't. The only shortcoming in the province is that the coach is not familiar with the restaurant.

    The coaching course content experience is good overall, although the previous day of the course was not able to teach in the Yuzawa Plateau, and the location of the coach is not easy for beginners to reach, so at the beginning we arrived at the appointment, Delay spent some time, but the course time There is a complement, it is recommended to be at the gate is the best choice. For beginners, poor physical fitness, and poor climate adaptation (slow snow), it is recommended to take 2 to 4 hours a day. After the course, you can review the experience. The next day, the course will be better. The most difficult for beginners should still fall. To stand up, I need to understand that the trainees, according to the coach’s yesterday’s teaching content, can stand up and stand on their own for the next day.

    The coach is very good. I took the initiative to contact me after a few days of booking. I added her Line to discuss how to meet, which is very reassuring. Teaching very well and very fast, the first time in the morning, I took a lift and went uphill in the afternoon. I was so thankful for the personal discomfort caused by snow blindness and the troubled coach who dragged me down the mountain. The children continued to follow the coach to go up the mountain to another route. The road was rushed into the snow pile because of the lack of skill. It was also an annoying coach to rescue. Although it seems that it is still far away from skiing alone, the scenery seen on the way is far beyond Our imagination, we will definitely challenge again next year. In the end, Klook's price is cheaper than the Japanese coach who is looking for a Japanese coach (usually the most expensive Chinese coach, the Japanese coach is the cheapest), plus the discount code that was grabbed during the trip, it took less than 5000NTD to slide for four hours. It’s so cost-effective!
