Employment at Japan Ski Tours
At Japan Ski Tours, we're always looking for qualified guide applicants as well as local bilingual support staff. Japan Ski Tours isn't just about providing a ski experience in Japan--its about combining that experience with the amazing culture, food, lodging and experience that being in Japan has to offer. Guides from abroad receive rigorous training in how to operate in Japan and off-mountain are always accompanied by bilingual staff who handle the cultural and concrete logistics of running a trip in Japan.
Winter Guide Position - A guide applicant will have years of experience winter guiding as well as the necessary avalanche safety certifications and lots of personal trip accomplishments. December 26 to March 10 is a full season for us so it compliments with other ski guide gigs in Alaska and New Zealand. If you're interested in applying for a guiding position with us, send us a note on our Contact Us page.
Dance proficiency is not a application requirement (having fun is)
