  1. Hey guys, First time poster here, and hoping to get pointed in the right direction. I'm going to be in Hakuba in February and I would love to get some lessons on how to carve like the Japanese do. I don't know if I'm completely off-base here, but through the last 2 years I've seen a number of YouTube videos of these snowboarders that have a very distinct carving style and they all seem to be Japanese. I've done some googling, and even e-mailed some JSBA accredited schools to see if they offer classes for non-Japanese speakers, and either they're unsure of the availability of a suitable instructor or I haven't heard back from them at all. Does anyone here have any experience booking lessons with one of the Japanese schools for lessons in English? Thanks in advanced for any help.
