2 Week Level 2 Snowboard Instructor Course in Japan

Become A Level 2 Snowboard Instructor

The Dream in Japan


There is no better place to expand your snowboarding skills than in Japan! That’s why we at Snowminds are excited to offer you our brand new Level 2 snowboard instructor course, so you now have the opportunity to receive two snowboard instructor certifcations within a single winter season.

When you combine our 3-week snowboard instructor course in Japan with this level 2 program, you will have the opportunity to go from beginner to highly qualified snowboard instructor with a more advanced certification during your very first winter season abroad. This course is therefore your chance to become an even better snowboard instructor and snowboarder and get the most out of your winter.



The Training


The training starts in January and is conducted by some of the best snowboard instructors in Japan. During the training, they will refine your technique so that you continuously develop as you work, and thus become ready to tackle your level 2 education.

The focus will be on developing your level and you can look forward to developing your level with rocket speed through constructive feedback and intense training. The course culminates with the Level 2 exam in late February and early March, which you can use to teach at a higher level and continue your instructor adventure , e.g  New Zealand, Canada and South Africa.




When you travel with Snowminds we take care of all the practicalities. That way you can pack your bags and good vibes and focus on preparing for your next adventure.

With this course package, you can look forward to the following benefits:


  • 7-day snowboard instructor training course in preparation for your Level 2 exam
  • Level 2 exam in February/March (including all NZSIA, APSI or CSIA materials and exam fees)
  • Arranged accommodation and lift pass during the course*
  • Access to Snowminds Reunion Party after your season.
  • Opportunity to see mainland Japan after your course ends
  • Confidence in Danish travel company that is a member of the Travel Guarantee Fund
  • A total experience where all the practicalities are arranged for you

What’s not included? 


  • Meal plan during your training course and education
  • Equipment for the season, such as avalanche equipment, touring ski, etc.
  • Pocket money and anything else not mentioned above


*The course takes place at the destination where you are working, because of this you’ll use the staff accommodation and staff lift pass from the ski school during the course. Expenses for the staff housing aren’t included.



At Snowminds, we take pride in offering everyone with the right passion the opportunity to become part of our community of ski and snowboard instructors. The Level 2 course has limited spots, so we unfortunately cannot guarantee your participation.

  • Feel good working with children, young people and adults alike
  • Enjoy teaching and being challenged
  • Speak English at a conversational level
