Miura Snowsports Overview Miura Snowsports Overview

What makes Miura Snowsports so compelling?

Gota Miura proudly serves as the director of Miura Snowsports, a legacy deeply rooted in over a century of family tradition and passion for skiing and adventure.

For five decades, the Miura name has been synonymous with adventure and skiing excellence, renowned not only across the globe, but particularly revered in Japan for their remarkable achievements.

Gota’s grandfather, a centenarian skier, played a pivotal role in shaping Japan’s ski industry. His father made history in 1970 as the first to ski down Mount Everest with a parachute on his back, summiting the world’s highest peak three times and setting records as the oldest to summit Everest twice, once at the age of 80.

Carrying forward this legacy, his brother represented Japan in downhill, super-G, and GS events on the global stage, while Gota carved a path on the world cup circuit for mogul skiing. He proudly wore Japan’s colours at the Olympics twice and summited Everest alongside my father, embracing the spirit of adventure and freedom that defines Miura family.

At the heart of the Miura Philosophy lies the pursuit of freedom through adventure, particularly within Snowsports. Miura instructors and guides embody this ethos, delivering pioneering programs that are meticulously designed to cater for diverse interests and skill levels.

Each program is meticulously crafted to cater for a diverse spectrum of interests and skill levels, assuring adventurers discover an array of experiences that harmonise perfectly with their unique desires, freedoms and aspirations.
