Enjoyable ski holiday

Very nice ski resort with plenty of runs. You never get bored of the runs. Chairlifts are quick and efficient and cafes are scattered all over the mountain .

Niseko is the right place if you like powder!! Powder every day! You wake up and there is powder and loads of show waiting for you because it snows at night...All night!! Make sure you have enough energy for the pow wow! Loads of good off-pist slopes and great food and bar places! Only some of the cable cars are... More

Powder everyday! At least when we were there. Night riding is fun less crowd and easy to see with the bright lights! If you get a blue bird day hike up to the very top! The snow is amazing!

Huge ski area, all you will ever need plus more. Great village with heaps of diverse tastes in restaurants. It all gets very crowded over New Year and heaps of westerners descend on the village. Good time to go is after mid January. Always heaps of snow and night skiing every night!

My husband and I are pretty easy going so generally Grand Hirafu was the best mountain out of the 4 slopes of Niseko United. We were there from 24 February to 3 March 2015 so it was spring skiing. It was always reasonably clear from the bottom half of the mountain and visibility got dicey as we went up to... More

Great snow and accommodation in Niseko. Stayed at base of family lift where it is very easy for tickets, ski hire and getting to the chair. Food on mountain is average only but the town has a number of good restaurants of mid to higher pricing.

Fantastic snow, modern lifts, short lines, bargain lift tickets compared to other resorts in the U.S. and Europe. Not steep and not a huge amount of terrain, but the amazing snow and the Japanese experience make it great.

I had an amazing 10 days of snowboarding in Niseko - the first day I got there was an absolutely clear day with a grand view of Mount Yotei! As the snow fell, the visibility dropped for the rest of the day but the next morning it left over 30cm of powder which is absolutely amazing for boarding! Over the... More
