If you go to Niseko United and do not spend all your time exploring the backcountry gates you may well have wasted a wonderful opportunity. On a snowy, closed in day you can always explore gate 7, 8 and Strawberry and Blueberry fields

Great place to learn to ski and for a family ski. Resort is fairly small but connects to the larger niseko United fields. Good green runs for beginner and a couple of good intermediate to black runs

Great family ski area, decent lifts and runs. Fairly busy, but no kamikaze yahoos, unlike north America. Base lodge has fabulous food, not only burgers/pizza, but also made to order ramen, rice curry and katsu entrees. Friendly, helpful staff, so no worries for any family member regardless of skiing ability

Quieter than Hirafu and lots of easy family runs. Not many challenging runs but still very enjoyable - can also ski across to Hirafu which is a nice long run. Also - surprisingly - best coffee we had anywhere in Niseko (though also most expensive at 550 yen).

This place beats them all, the best on the mountain. Wash it down with the beer tower and boy does skiing in the afternoon become interesting.

Of all the mountains we visited whilst in niseko, we found that hanazono was the least crowded (although none were super crowded). It's restaurant at the base was excellent, similar food to that in whistler, however was lacking in vegetarian options. It was probably the most westernised mountain food that we came across. 2 / 3 of the chairlifts had... More

Excellent part of the mountain to get away from the crowds on some of the other slopes in the area plus excellent base facilities

Besides the powder snow Niseko is famed for, the slopes are expansive. Lots of space to fall and tumble. They are also segregated for different activities, to ensure safety for all users. Slopes are gentle enough for beginners. Classes are available. Do check their website for details. We love the "magic carpet" travelators which bring users up the slopes (saves... More

It's got some challenging of piste areas however the groomed runs are fairly bland. It all part of the Niseko Magic and adds to the variety on the mountain. You must to the base for a Crab Ramen it's fantastic and part of the culture...
