The resort is internationally renowned for its consistently good falls of the lightest powder snow!
A LITTLE ABOUT NISEKO
Conditions in Niseko are unlike anywhere else in the world. The resort has an average annual snowfall of 18 meters and most of that falls as pure powder.
The Niseko ski resort area is located 120 km south west of Sapporo City on Japan’s northern island, Hokkaido. It covers a massive area consisting of four resorts including Hanazono, Hirafu, Niseko Village and Annapuri.
Lifts run non-stop for over 12.5 hours a day - starting at 8:30am and closing at 9:00pm. The night skiing area is huge with great visibility and even the tree runs are accessible. The snow can get even deeper and dryer at night! On a clear day the views from Niseko are breathtaking and if you hike to the peak you can sometimes see all the way to the ocean.
Due to the amazing conditions Niseko has to offer, we stock a variety of skis and boards so you can glide through the lush powder or do some wide carve turns on the groomers.
Most winters niseko receives more than 15m of dry powder snow. Waist deep off-piste snow is not uncommon and it’s so light and dry that even intermediate skiers and boarders can handle it with very little change of technique.
Learning to ski or snowboard in Niseko is the best place on earth as the snow is forgiving and the terrain is gentle.
Niseko is home to many delicious restaurants, from traditional Izakyas (Japanese pub style) to Michelin star fine dinning, Niseko it has it all!
