Ski and Snowboard instructor courses in Japan
EA Ski and Snowboard having been running instructor internship and instructor training courses in Japan for over a decade! Our Japanese resorts are renowned for their amazing cultural experiences, food, quiet mountains and very deep snowfalls (up to 16 metres in some parts of Japan!). A ski season in Japan can seem a bit daunting at first; the cultural differences, the food, the language... but these things are also what makes Japan exciting.
Instructor training in Japan began with a partnership with the Canyons Ski School. Since then, we have grown to include over 9 resorts including Club Med Sahoro, Club Med Tomamu, Nozawa Onsen ski resort, Hakuba & Mt. Naeba. There are 3 types of internships available in Japan, so if you are wanting to embark on a winter gap year or start your career as a snowsports instructor, we have a program to suit you!
