Crayon Shinchan Kids School

Crayon Shinchan Kids School

Rusutsu Resort welcomes the popular animation character Crayon Shinchan to the Ski School! This special lesson program will offer students the opportunity to learn how to ski in both an indoor and outdoor environment.With new and unique learning techniques, this program is a fun and unique way for kids to learn to ski.
With the new Friction program students will learn to ski initially on the indoor slope. This specially designed indoor slope has more friction compared to snow meaning students will feel safe sliding very slowly at first.

The indoor slope allows students to improve their balance as they slowly start to slide in a safe learning environment.

This unique indoor slope helps everyone feel safe on their skis allowing students to quickly master skiing. Students learn the basics of stance and balance indoors before progressing to the outdoor slope where they learn to stop and turn.

  3. Students are separated by age with children under the age of 4 using the smaller lesson area and children between the ages 5 to 9 using the longer slope.
