Join our team of winter lovers here at MnK Niseko, offering unique seasonal experiences and adventure in the natural surroundings of Niseko, Japan! We are currently seeking winter season Elevate Snowsports ski, snowboard and crossover instructors! Elevate Snowsports offers tailored snowsports instruction in one of the world's top resorts.
About the Company
Elevate Snowsports is one of Niseko's newest ski/snowboard schools, launched after we noticed a demand for private lessons outside of our popular winter kid's camp. Our private lessons are tailored to each adult's and child's individual needs and learning goals. We select the most appropriate part of the mountain for our guests based on ability, learning aspirations, weather and crowds and make sure they get the most out of every minute on the hill.
- As an Elevate Snowsports instructor, you will be responsible for providing high-quality lessons tailored to each guest's individual needs and learning goals.

- We're looking for outdoor enthusiasts who hold a valid working holiday visa or are Japanese citizens, and are fluent in English. Fluency in Japanese or Mandarin is an advantage.
