Active Life Japan are in search for certified ski and snowboard instructors, along with two certified and experienced snow school team leaders and general staff for the upcoming JAPOW season!

Active Life have been operating at the Madarao Resort but have recently come into ownership of Palcall Tsumagoi Mountain Resort. Madarao is known for 16 to 20 metres of snowfall every season and we have recently set up one of Japan’s longest terrain park at our very own Palcall Tsumagoi Resort, which also has one of Japan’s highest gondola’s.

Working for Active Life will mean you’ll have access to both worlds and will be able to teach and travel (for free) across both resorts. We offer good levels of pay, subsidised staff accommodation, flexible food arrangements (opt in or out of our staff food). We also offer an inter resort shuttle during peak season that travels to Myoko, Lotte and across other Nagano resorts.

Most importantly, we’re looking for good people with the respect for foreign cultures, positive, hard working, with people skills and a high level of emotional intelligence.

Must be available between 20 December 2022 and mid February 2023
