Essential Site for All Advanced Skiers

The master of our hotel is Shinichi Wakatsuki. He is a former all-Japan
national demonstrator! He started skiing at the age of three and then
immersed himself in the world of competitive skiing after that. He won
many prizes at intercollegiate championships when he was in university
and at the All Japan Championships. After retiring from competition, he
studied overseas alone for four years at the Austria National Ski School
with the aim of becoming an instructor. He returned to Japan after
acquiring the Austrian national ski instructor qualification. After
that, he served as an all-Japan national demonstrator for 9 periods
(18 years) and was chosen to represent Japan in international skiing
four times. He currently teaches at the Shinanomachi Ski Club. In
addition, he is working to spread the popularity of skiing, such as by
serving as a referee at the All-Japan Ski Technique Championships.
