What a shame, the mountain and snow are still fantastic but unfortunately that is where it ends. I have been going to Niseko for over 15 years but have and enough of the groups of Aussies big noting themselves and I am a proud Aussie myself. no wonder you hardly see a local on the mountain. Want a tip, try... More

The resort is now so overrun with very badly behaved young Australians I am not sure I will return on our next ski trip to Japan. After Australia Day there was a considerable amount of rubbish, empty bottles and plastic beer cups, discarded around the village including in the bus shelter. Much of this rubbish disappears from sight each night... More

Firstly, from what the locals tell me I picked the worst 10 days in the last 10 years. While the first 4 days we had snow, we also had very very strong winds which had the snow sideways. After that, the next 5 days were freeze/thaw and some very warm. From all the information available, this seems just to be... More

Recommend the Niseko United ski resort , with a wide range of runs, best powder snow when it's on, and helpful, friendly staff.h

Best snow by far I have ever snowboarded on. It did NOT stop snowing the entire trip. There was continuously a new layer of powder every run. This was great, although did add a slight visibility disadvantage at times. I went with two first time skiers and the Ace Family trail was perfect for them. We stayed just off the... More

Great off-piste stuff but gets tracked out very quickly. When the gates are opened there's heaps of great powder skiing but the gates didn't open very often when we were there. Lots of powpow but there's a tradeoff in that visiblility can be awful and we only saw Mt Yohtei twice in 12 days. Lifts/gondolas are slow and the lines... More

We travel a lot to Japan for leisure and decided on skiing this year in Niseko as opposed to either the US or Europe. The skiing is great and well organised and a lot of snow so no problems from that side. It gets a little busy, particularly at this time of the year over the Chinese New Year period,... More

I can't believe I only discovered this place at the age of 40. I'm from the Philippines, and have been skiing in the US at every opportunity, (on average, one week every three years.) That'll change now that I know there is a place nearer that has just as much snow as my favorite mountains in Utah and Colorado, with... More

Plenty of good quality snow both groomed and ungroomed. One of the days was said to be the best powder day since December so the powder experience was good with plenty of options to push the powder. If the wind gets up the top of the mountain can be closed this closes off options to move between the 4 main... More
