Claudia spent her winter working as a ski instructor in Japan. Read her story below...

Why did you pick Japan for your ski season?

Spending my winter as a ski instructor in Japan was a spur of the moment decision, that turned out to be one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Before starting my job, I spent 6 weeks travelling throughout the country, spending time in absolutely incredible natural areas. I camped, hiked & explored some of Japan’s many prefectures, before settling in the town where I had gotten a job as a ski instructor through EA Ski and Snowboard.

What was it like working as a ski instructor in Japan?

I worked with and taught people from all across the world, and made life long friends. Life was simple, yet the most fun I’ve ever had! I loved the feeling of using my body all day, helping people find the magic in skiing and snowboarding. Living in the small village meant I could keep going back to my favourite local coffee shop, get a membership at the local bouldering gym, and make connections that are harder to do as a tourist passing through. The culture of Japan shone through, and I quickly got used to having regular onsens after a day of skiing, alongside the local women who loved to have the temperature as high as possible! The restaurants in town serve high quality, delicious food that is pretty affordable, and so going out for dinner and drinks is something that us ski instructors found ourselves doing quite regularly! I couldn’t recommend this experience enough, it gave me a lot more confidence, independence and most importantly, I had the time of my life!
