Ski-in ski-out staff accommodation and huge annual snowfall!

Part of Japan’s Nagano Prefecture, Hakuba was put on the map globally with the 1998 Winter Olympics. Hakuba is famous in Japan and the world for great skiing and boasts some of the best resorts and snowfall in the country. For more than 70 years Hakuba has been providing skiers, snowboarders and outdoor enthusiasts the ideal conditions for enjoying an epic winter experience. Over 200 different trails, amazing powder and some of the longest vertical skiing in Japan, Hakuba has earned its reputation as an absolute must for the bucket list for skiers and boarders of all levels. The season here can start as early as November, but the best conditions can generally be found from December to late February, with March perfect for spring skiing and some of the resorts staying open until the first week of May.


Evergreen Ski School is based on the slopes of Happo-one in Hakuba,  arguably one of Japan’s biggest and best ski resorts. Evergreen has professional ski school for ski and snowboard lessons, but specialise in back country - avalanche skills training, deep powder backcountry tours, and general gnarly-ness. If you're looking to charge the back country, this is the spot.

Living & WORKING at Hakuba Happo-One

As an instructor at Evergreen Snowsports School you will be expected to work hard when it is busy, and play hard when it is not!

This is your chance to check out the infamous Nagano Winter Olympics location. There are 11 resorts in this area for you to explore – including epic Cortina which gets almost double the powder of other resorts in the area and has amazing off piste free skiing and boarding. If you are a hard-core powder hound who’s priority is the fresh stuff, keen to learn more about snow quality in the back country, understanding avalanches and learning from the best (as well as a few parties on the side), this is the spot for you.
