The snow is amazing, the lifts arent too busy and there are so many trails to keep you busy all day! The night skiing/snowboarding is so quiet you can have the whole mountain to your self pretty much!

LOOK AT A MAP.Be aware of where and what you want to do after with all the famous powder runs.Niseko has three ski areas which are interlinked but completely different for accommodation, restaurants and services. Hirafu is the main village .Accommodation choices are plentiful and it has a good shuttle service to the lifts.On my last calculation Niseko Grand Hirafu... More

We have had 6 games of golf and visited 3/4 very very good restaurants in and around Niseko Hirafu. The trip was organised by Niseko Wow by Ian McKenzie and his assistant Ruby. We had a group of 18 mixed and I think this is the last hidden Gem for golf, food and scenery at a very reasonable cost

Have spent a lot of time skiing on this mountain and I'm constantly amazed at the amount of snow. A must for every skier and snowboarder.

If you are looking for powder, don't consider anywhere else! I have been coming to Niseko for 4 seasons and have absolutely fallen in love!

We went in the middle of peak season and there was more than enough room on the slopes, plenty of spare lockers everyday and a great bus service to get you from your hotel to the gondolas. Shredding the powder at night was special, no crowd and typically only advanced skiers and snowboarders around to enjoy it with :)

Great skiing with low crowds. Terrain for every level including great tree skiing. Restaurants could offer a bit more variety especially at the budget end of things but in a week we only repeated a lunch meal once. The place reminds me of Breckenridge, CO.

I love this place. We went in the 'low season' and skied (literally mountains of) fresh powder with no lift queues and uncrowded slopes. Add an awesome choice of western and Japanese food, and outdoor onsens (a post ski beer in toasty hot water surrounded by snow)... what's not to like? One important lesson (winge), if you buy your ski... More

Stayed in the Upper Village of Hirafu. If you are used to ski in ski out, options are very limited. The village itself is on quite a grade, and whilst they have some heated roads and sidewalks, all too often walking around was slippery due to the village incline. The morning trudge for first run was cumbersome. They have a... More
