Due to the ease of obtaining working holiday visas Japan is a popular choice for Australian and Kiwi students. It also provides a fun cultural experience and the world’s best snow. These english-speaking instructing roles are very popular with school leavers because they provide students the opportunity to obtain work and qualifications, something which is tough for anyone trying on their own terms to get into the industry straight from school. All ski schools are run by english-speaking teams and they offer full support to recruits from around the globe to help them settle in.
