Something for everyone - beginners and experts alike. We didn't get much powder snow but we were just unlucky with this one slightly warmer winter in Hokkaido this year . Great off-road areas!

This is our 4th time and 3 year in a row skiing in Grand Hirafu. Snow is very good. Lots of runs for all level of skiers. Given that it's Chinese New Year week, the resort (or the whole town) is very crowded. Weather in Niseko can be a bit un-predictable. The chair lift up the mountain can be a... More

Tried every ski school every day. GoSnow was my favourite colour and had lift priority. Even a little magic carpet to practice on! GoSnow is best!

This probably offers the most runs and is also then the busiest of the 4 areas to ski in. This area is well suited to intermediate skiers with mostly red and green runs. There are 4 mountain huts too where you can meet up with the rest of your ski party on the slopes for a quick lunch or warm... More

The big plus on Hirafu and Niseko United is the mass of snow, so no Alps "just 35cm" snow problems. That makes deep snow aka powder skiing very accessible. Sounds like heaven? Not really you pay for it ....prices for lift tickets, rental equipment etc are above prime alp resorts like Zermatt or St. Anton. But the lifts in Niseko... More

No waiting lines, best powder ever. We're from Vancouver with Whistler only an hour away. Best glade runs - super dry powder.

Compared to many ski resorts around the world, Niseko is probably one of the rarest place with snowy weather almost everyday - meaning the runs are so powder most of the time. I have experienced 30cm of snowfall in one night during my stay in mid January 2016. My friend (from Vancouver) and I (from Hong Kong) enjoyed skiiing at... More
