Hoshino Resorts style original ski course "SKIds 70", a fun and intense course in a short time, is upgraded. “SKIds 70” started at “Alts Bandai” in the ski season from 2016 to 2017, and is expanded to “Risonare Yatsugatake” in the following ski season. More than 10,000 children have attended the course until now. From this year, Tomamu (Hokkaido) has joined and become the 3rd location to hold the course in Japan while wishing "to take SKIds 70 to children all over the world". The course is now open to children in the world. (From Dec. 28, 2019, to Mar. 1, 2020. Excluding closed days.)

The “SKIds 70” record is shared among Risonare Yatsugatake, Alts Bandai, and Tomamu. No repeatedly level check or practicing for the steps you learned. Among the three facilities, the lessons continue from the step you left last time with no time waste. Thus children can improve in the shortest time.
SKIds 70 provides a full-fledged curriculum that is fun and can improve your children's ski ability. They will learn the ski skills needed to pass SAJ Junior Test level 2. By finishing the top-level (*2), we guarantee that your children can glide freely on the intermediate slope. They may take the test on the course used in the lesson (for a limited time). It is an official recognition of your child's step-up results.
