There is a great variety of terrain at Niseko for all levels, and for everyone from powder hounds to park rats. Unfortunately however, there was no snow for the first 5 of 8 days that I was there. Still, it was fairly enjoyable, and there was still enough good riding to have a good time, especially if you were willing... More

Some of the best, deepest pow I experienced! I have been coming here for a few years now. The crowds are getting a bit out of hand. I guess we were just spoiled before. Niseko has turned into a huge ski destination, especially for Aussies. The mountain has lots of terrain to keep you busy exploring, especially when all the... More

We got all the snow we needed for skiing - awesome weather! Rental of ski gear was easy and no fuss - great selection of ski slopes for different level of skill and experience. Fun for everyone! Family friendly!

It's beautiful & we we're very lucky the first few days to have loads of fresh snow. However the runs are poorly signed &'some of the lift system is in desperate need of updating. Compared to European & American skiing it lacks in its number of runs & variety of terrain. However good mountain eating places, at reasonable prices. Plenty... More

Great snow on four interconnected faces of the mountain with ample lifts. The quantity and speed of lifts meant that there were almost no queues, although the gondola sometimes has a short wait. Skiing is a combination of greens and reds but not too many blacks.

As most review here ! Nothing beat the evening ski here, lift chair operates until 8.30pm, went on end Feb, powder snow is still very consistent especially during 6-8pm !! Highly recommended slope for skiers/snowboarders up tonintermediate level ! A great family slope is available too ! Definitely will come back

Have been coming here for the last 9 years, and this will be the last for a few years, unfortunately. Despite the positive development of the hotel, rental, and dining infrastructure in Hirafu, the unfortunate lack of development of the ski facilities (which all are dependent on), is very much lacking. There has been hardly any upgrade of the archaic... More
