My son & I skied here as part of a Whiterooms tour in late December early January. We skied all four Niseko resorts and were very impressed.....except by the crowds. Felt just like Thredbo or Perisher at times except that the queue lines are not well managed. Of the Niseko four our preferred area was Annupuri. The snow just seemed... More

This is a very interesting place! the snow is great so it makes up for the fact that most lifts are older and were not throughly planned out. it really brought a different feeling to the ski towns we are used too.

We had heard so much about how good & uncrowded Niseko mountain was but we were a little disappointed how crowded it got at times in the main areas. The secret is out but if you go to the other parts of the Ski Resort you can still find great uncrowded runs with excellent snow

Amazing snow in this place...just buckets down endlessly...once you learn the system here...gates to be gone through, you are off into some beautiful skiing. A lot of varied terrain for all abilities. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, very polite. You can walk pretty much anywhere, but there are shuttles to the different ski areas, all free. Great family place... More

This is purely a skischool- there are no inside activities ,the two cabins are just for toilet/ food breaks no inside play. A few half... More

Came for powder and found powder. Doesn't get skied out as fast as Salt Lake, Vail or Aspen. So after a powder dump, there's powder to be found until your legs fall off. Lifts aren't the fastest, terrain is not the most challenging, but overall powder fun is unbeatable. Super friendly staff, unlike some of the grunting grunts in North... More

The best snow in the world and the most polite and gorgeous people. The food is also amazing. That's why people go back every year.

Best powder on the planet! Consistently year after year, skiing has been great. Lines for lifts are not long, and finding powder is not difficult off the groomed slopes.

The snow is powdery & beautiful. Excellent place to ski. People are helpful & you get fresh seafood. Wonderful place to visit & look forward to be back to ski again.
