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...

Lots of magic carpets to help beginner skiers to practise. Quieter with less crowd compared to Grand Hirafu. Best crab ramen. Michellin star restaurant called Asperger's.

Mostly great intermediate runs with powder on the sides, tree runs through strawberry fields,sheltered green runs. The base Lodge is a ideal meeting place.Great coffee and large food area,a place to relax before more runs. You can catch the bus or ski over from the Hirafu side.Excellent if you get caught in a white out.

Hano is really good for beginner runs, but also for awesome side country rides out in Strawberry Fields and through Gate 4 and 5! The powder is just absolutely amazing!

Great place to come for a rest after skiing some of the steeper areas. The food hall down the bottom is great for a rest and some excellent Japanese food even though some people eat Western food like hamburgers (really people ! you are in Japan - how can you eat hamburgers and ships???)

Hanazono has wide, long runs and something for everyone. Don't miss it! The base lodge is particularly good, with a range of excellent food choices which makes it one of the most popular places to eat in the entire Niseko United range of resorts. The Snowsports School also has a reputation for excellence, so give it a go if you... More

We took the bus from Hirafu for an afternoon with the little ones on the snow tubes. Bear in mind it closes at 4pm, although an hour was enough for us then we had a nice hot wine to thaw out!

Great resort to ski. Snow was excellent quality all day and no queues. Lots of trees to ski in as well as groomed and ungroomed runs.
