SEASON (IN MONTHS)

ANNUAL SNOWFALL

Destination Overview

Japan is the new black. It’s the next best thing. It was once a secret, but someone let that cat out of the bag a while ago. Japan’s consistently deep snows, colourful culture, and gastronomic pleasures are well-known and frequently sought after.

Culture

No matter where you are in Japan you’ll find kind, polite and delightful Japanese people with a culture to match. Prepare to be amazed by the sheer cleanliness of the place, the ridiculously punctual transport systems and the abundance of natural hot springs (Onsens), that help soak your aching body after a hard day on the slopes.

Training

The trainers that we work with are at the very top of their game. They all hold international trainer certifications and have decades of coaching experience under their belts. They will deliver an elite coaching program designed to develop your on-snow skills and teaching theory over the duration of a course or season.

Courses

Our courses in Japan are available to anyone who is eligible to apply for a working holiday visa. We offer our flagship internship model for both skiers and snowboarders with the opportunity to train, qualify and work all in the very same season:

Qualifications

We ensure you receive the most professional and progressive qualifications available. We only partner with ISIA sanctioned National Associations and in Japan we have chosen to work with:

  • NZSIA – New Zealand Snowsports Instructors Alliance
  • SBINZ – Snowboard Instruction New Zealand

We've got some bad news!


Unfortunately it appears that you don't currently have enough ski or snowboard experience. We require a minimum of 2 weeks on-snow experience for all of our instructor courses. We hope to hear from you again in the near future.
