Great powder and luxury accomodation in an English speaking environment.

Up in the north of Japan, EA Ski and Snowboard Internship Courses are based at Club Med, Sahoro & Tomamu, Hokkaido. Hokkaido is Japan’s most northerly island which has a strong history of winter sports since it hosted the Sapporo Olympic Games in 1972. 

 

The epic conditions in Sahoro & Tomamu guarantee plentiful snow and great powder on and off piste. Club Med offers the perfect place for 20+ year olds looking for guaranteed income and a fun experience. You can leave home knowing you will work hard, but you’ll be looked after well, in luxurious accommodation, be well fed and watered and enjoy Japan in an English speaking environment!

 

As with Club Med resorts worldwide, the main concept of Club Med Sahoro is to offer the ultimate hassle free holiday for families. Their services are almost all-inclusive. Ski packages include transport, accommodation, lift passes, daily meals, snacks, beverages and ski and snowboard lessons. There are specific children’s programmes, so parents can drop off their kids for the day, go skiing and have a great day knowing everything is taken care of!

Living & WORKING at Club Med

As an instructor at Club Med Sahoro or Tomamu you are well looked after. This location does differ from other EA internships in a few ways. Here are some points we feel sum up the Club Med instructor internship:

  • Ski lessons will be 2 hours in the morning followed by 2 hours in the afternoon.
  • Professional on snow development is offered 3 times per week.
  • You need to be 20+ years old by the time you start work, to be placed here
  • You will earn an attractive monthly salary at Club Med. After deductions for food, accommodation and tax you can expect to earn approximately $800-$1000 USD each month. This is a unique opportunity, and due to the nature of the Club Med resort expenses during the season are low. This gives you a fantastic opportunity for financial security and to earn a fair share of the course cost back!
  • Long days are to be expected! Interns socialise each evening with guests after their lessons, either taking part in performances for them, or having a few drinks and chatting to them.

Why should you choose Club Med Sahoro?

Club Med offers the perfect place for 20+ year olds looking for a guaranteed income and a fun experience. You can leave home knowing you will work hard, but be well looked after. You will live in luxurious accommodation, be well fed and enjoy Japan in an English speaking environment!
