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

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
