Junior Mountain Riders (JMR) is a safe and adventurous on snow program for kids and teens that are ready explore more of the mountain. The program emphasizes safe, fun and responsible riding etiquette around the Niseko United ski areas.

The group will shred the mountain while getting tips and tricks along the way to challenge themselves without the drills and exercises of ski school. Most importantly this program is about fast-paced fun with a coach and a small group of friends.

This popular program is the alternative for strong riders who have been through ski school and want a less structured learning environment. Most popular with families travelling together, JMR allows friends to further explore the mountain with more freedom and flexibility.

This program has flexible start time 5hrs tuition (+1hr lunch break on mountain). Lunch is included in the program cost. The group/instructor will decide when/where to stop each day for lunch. Lift passes are not included in the program price and must be purchased separately. Program may change due to weather, chairlift closures or to suit objectives of the group.
