Working Hours: A typical day starts at 7:30am and finishes at 4:30 or 5:00pm.
‘Overtime’ is any work in excess of 10 hours so is not something Lift Assistants will have.
Primary duties include clearing away snow from around the boarding ramp onto the lift. Wiping off snow that has settled on the lift seats as they come down the mountain. Checking customer tickets and clipping if required. Helping customers safely board the lifts; giving verbal instruction to customers who aren’t familiar with riding lifts. Stopping lifts in case of emergency. On snowy days lift seats will need to be regularly cleaned (brushed) before customers sit down. In the event of heavy snowfall, lift paths may need to be cleared. A physically demanding position. At most resorts you will work on a 20-30 minute rotation system where you’ll rotate between the different duties.
NOTE: In general, Japan is still a smoking society. Most lift offices (where you spend about half your working time) have at least a couple of staff who smoke inside. Therefore, if you are sensitive about smoking, it might be best not to apply for a lift job.
Additional Duties: Greeting customers with a nice smile and a friendly ‘hello’.
