Evergreen's Complimentary Shuttle Service

In service from 20th December 2014. Please contact us for Private lesson pick-ups prior to this date


Group Lesson and Private Lesson Pick-ups

Evergreen offers a complimentary pick-up service to take you to our Snow Sports School. We operate similar to any standard bus service with set bus stops and times that can be found below on this page (bus times are departure times so be sure not to be late or you will miss your bus). If you wish to request the complimentary shuttle service, please provide us with your hotel when making a booking and we will let you know your bus stop and time. The bus stops are marked with green Evergreen flags and are easy to find - just ask your hotel/lodge owner on arrival. Reservations must be made no later than 5:00 PM the day before using this service. We can take all lesson participants and up to 2 parents/guardians for children - thank you for your understanding..

All displayed bus stop times are departure times so please arrive at your nearest bus stop at least 5 minutes before your bus departure time for equipment and passenger loading.

Due to weather conditions, high demand and traffic congestion in the Winter season we are unable to completely guarantee our drivers will be at the stop for these times. Also, if you are late, the bus cannot wait for you as it will keep others waiting - thank you for your understanding and for being on time.


Private Lesson Pick-ups

Evergreen International Ski School offers private lesson pick-ups directly from your hotel.

*Important* - this service must be booked in advance by sending an email to winterbookings@evergreen-hakuba.com no later than 4:00pm the day prior to your scheduled lesson - if we do not hear from you we will assume that you are making your own way to Evergreen International Ski School.
