Brand new for 2016/17 are the NBS “Slopestyle Sessions”. This program is run for those wanting to style up the parks and improve general jibbing! These sessions aim to provide participants with coaching, guidance, advice and the skills needed to safely improve their terrain park talent.

The Slopestyle coaches can assist all levels of rider, from the skier/boarder keen to stomp a 360 for the first time, to those wanting to get sendy on booters and pretzel rails.

The main focus with Slopestyle Sessions is personal rider improvement on all types of fun and challenging terrain. Coaching is not exclusive to the park with time spent jibbing natural features such as wind lips, pillow lines, drops etc. found around the Niseko United playground.

There are features for every level of rider whether natural or manmade to provide a steady progression through the week. Start small and get bigger through the week with a qualified coach keeping it fun and safe.
