Niseko JP

Ski Niseko and thanks to nature, the four ski resort areas offer skiing zones that fit all levels of expertise as well as plenty of activities from shopping to restaurants and bars for those who enjoy taking some time off from the slopes.

Where

Located in the northern island of Hokkaido, if you ski Niseko and get four resorts for the price of one! In fact they are often considered as one, since many people visit multiple zones throughout a day each of which, caters to English speaking people. The Niseko ski resorts offer almost 50kms of piste made up of the Miowa zone (the lesser visited of the four), the Annapuri which experiences the most temperate weather, the Higashiyama that is best known to tourists, and the Hirafu which is the most popular due to its foreign investor interests.

WE LIKE

  • Great terrain at all levels and some amazing tree-lined runs if that's your thing! Pistes open until 21.00 every night
  • You get free access for powder off piste - perfect because there's usually lots of it average 15m of snowfall a year!
  • Learners will enjoy the slopes being close to the resort along with English speaking instructors

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Sometimes suffers from lack of sun - so can get really cold - but that's perfect to keep the snow conditions and powder
  • No focus in Niseko as a resort - but it's a minor point as the culture and experience is excellent
  • independent travel quite complex unless you give yourself over to one of the operators

On the slopes

If you ski Niseko you'll get great accessibility thanks to lifts, ski busses, and back country courses between the four resorts. Due to the fact that the four regions differ greatly all levels of difficulty are represented in the area and there is a wide variety of options from downhill skiing to cross country to moguls to snowboarding. All areas experience a high level of snow which results in most of the courses being open throughout the ski season of Japan. For advanced and experts, head towards the Strawberry Fields area in the Hirafu section for the best challenges.
