    Accommodation – being arranged this summer!

    • Each of our accommodations is subsidized to bring you housing at an affordable price!
    • Staff house, twin share (doubles for couples) or quad share

    Lift Passes - Your choice of either:

    • A Grand Hirafu season lift pass at a highly subsidized price!
    • Most companies will give staff access to shared Grand Hirafu passes, these are usually kept at work so it may stop you getting first lifts on powder days! Shared passes also cannot be upgraded to All Mountain passes (unless everyone sharing the pass agrees to it). Working for HT Holidays means your pass can live in your snowboard jacket and gives you the opportunity to pay to upgrade your pass to cover All Mountain!

      Bi-monthly pay

      • Receive your pay every 2 weeks!
      • Most companies pay monthly which can leave you eating into your savings at the start of the season

        • Please see our website for more details on what we book, but this could include things like snowmobiling, back country tours, freestyle ski/snowboard lessons, transfers and car rental
        • Car rental always is always very popular, 4 seater cars for around 5,000JPY mean you can explore Hokkaido and what the nearby resorts have to offer!

        Incentives for guest services sales

        • Being the largest providers of accommodation in Niseko, HT Holidays are offered a certain amount of free tasting at local restaurants. These will be allocated to staff based on those job roles most likely to make restaurant recommendations. We will try and share these out, although they are subject to availability.
