About Program

Niseko, Japan – known as the powder capital of the world – has snow-covered mountains and ski slopes galore. On this trip, you’ll become a qualified ski instructor so you can get paid to ski in one of the most futuristic countries in the world.

Spend three weeks training for your Level 1 NZSIA ski instructor certification while living in Niseko, Japan. This entry-level course is designed to get you confident and ready for employment in this winter wonderland.

The course typically runs for 4 or 5 days a week. So – with your included seasonal ski pass – you’ll have plenty of time to put your course theory into practice as you carve your way through your new backyard.

And when you’re done with your course, you’ll be offered a job on the slopes. This is the closest you’ll get to a guaranteed life as a ski instructor in Japan!
