Your own Free Grand Hirafu season lift pass is offered.
Most companies will give their 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 Skye Niseko means your pass can live in your riding jacket and gives you the opportunity to pay the difference to upgrade to an All Mountain pass.
For those of you who do not require a lift pass you will be offered instead a payment of ¥20,000.
Receive your pay every 2 weeks.
Most local employers pay monthly which can leave you eating into your savings at the start of the season.
