Ninja Academy are a team of riders who live and breath snowboarding. We have spent years learning everything we can about this amazing sport. During our time riding on mountains all over the world we have learnt that there is an incredible amount of snowboarding potential in all of us. It is our belief that every person on the mountain, in the right coaching environment, has the potential to do great things. Now we want to help you unleash that potential and be the best rider you can be.
"Shred Hard. Have Fun."



"SHRED HARD. HAVE FUN." That is our company motto. We know that the more you ride and the more fun you’re having you are destined to succeed.

We take care of the science part of snowboarding focusing on creating a fun and exciting coaching environment on the mountain. You supercharge your riding by learning the skills you need and applying them on epic terrain. We then add in some extra activities when the shredding is done to help you develop as a rider and to unwind.

The result is success in your riding and an unforgettable trip. Your entire snowboard holiday package will be a blast!
