Niseko Ski Resort

Hokkaido, Japan

Niseko ski resort is actually 4 ski resorts combined into 1; Annapuri,Hanazono,Village and Hirafu ski resorts all accessable on the one lift ticket. It is famous for the copious amounts of dry snow that creates some of the best powder conditions in the world. On the downside there is little in the way of steeps so advanced riders might eventually get bored with the knee deep powder conditions that often prevail. There is everything from beginner runs to on piste tree runs. Beginners will want to visit the Hirafu section, whilst advanced riders who want to do groomers should head for the Niseko Village section. There is plenty of good off piste riding (only a few areas are roped off- everywhere else is ok to go) particularly in the Hanazono section. Most advanced riders though will probably want to get into Niseko's back bowls-known as the "Niseko white room" or even deeper into the Niseko backcountry. We can get you on a guided off piste tours to get you to the best spots and, more importantly, get you out safely. Here are some options: Guided day trip searching for best powder (ex Niseko) 10 day Hokkaido Unplugged tour 11 day Ultimate powder tour" tour
