Ski Instructor Jobs Available in Japan Starting in November

Calendar August 31st, 2018

Ski instructor jobs are available in Japan for this coming season with EA Ski & Snowboard. If you are over 20 years of age, hold your Level One Ski Certification, and looking to take the next step in your career, we have an opportunity for you.  



This is not your traditional show-up, teach and leave ski instructor job.  You will be working as a salaried employee for one of the world's most exclusive ski resort based in Hokkaido, Japan.

Your primary responsibilities will be to provide daily ski lessons and ensure resort guests have a good time during their stay. This may include sharing the occasional drink or meal with visitors, showing new guests around the resort upon arrival, or assisting with organised resort activities. If you’re looking to take the next step in your career, this is the ultimate ski instructor job. 



You will be working in Hokkaido, Japan, which is frequently praised by skiers from around the world for having the “best quality powder snow” averaging around 16 metres a season! Unlike traditional ski instructor roles, you will earn a salary and receive consistent levels of work.

As one of the world's most exclusive ski resorts, you will live in high -quality staff accommodation and have your meals catered by resort chefs. Employees receive unlimited access to resort amenities including world-class gyms and heated indoor swimming pools. Plus, did we forget to mention that they also drink free in the resort bar? 

You will be expected to work hard, but you will be well looked after. Staff who remain for the full season will have half their flight home reimbursed and can apply for other positions at one of the 70 available resorts worldwide.
