Madarao and Tangram are one of the fastest growing international resorts in Japan yet still offers small crowds on countless powder days with an annual snowfall of 10 to 14 metres.
Located in Nagano, with direct access from Tokyo on a 2-hour bullet train, the resort offers 20 chair lifts and easy access (within 40 mins) to neighbouring resorts like Myoko and Nozawa Onsen. Madarao is growing a reputation for openly encouraging inbound tree-skiing within its bowl-like terrain!
Active Life Japan owns and operates 4 hotels, 1-5 minutes walking distance to Madarao Kogen: Active Life Madarao, Hakken by Active Life, Xplore by Active Life and Space by Active Life. As one of Madarao’s largest employers, we offer an immersion into the Japanese winter resort lifestyle and a working-holiday unlike anywhere else.
Many seasons of employing staff have helped us learn and improve in every aspect as an international employer. We are very excited and committed to offering a great work-holiday experience for the 2019/2020 JaPOW season!
In addition to wages, accommodation, food, discounted passes and commissions, Active Life also offers a free inter-resort shuttle to nearby resorts, Myoko, Nozawa, Lotte Arai, Kijimadaira and X-Jam until 16/2.
We’re looking for mature and authentic people with absolute respect for other cultures and people, a high level of emotional intelligence, a sense of humour and a strong work ethic.
