I booked through Ski Japan and they have been very helpful. They met us at the Chitose airport and showed us the meeting... More

The Milk Kobo sweets they sell at their cafe are to die for, they are so incredibly good! Try the cheese cake, it will change your life! Also if you have a chance, go to the actual Milk Kobo as they have even more range, the cream puffs are apparently the best thing to have

There are quite a few nice and modern apts/chalets in Niseko but none can compare to Alpen Ridge's location and service level. It's basically one minute walk to the family lift with ski school on ground floor, which is great for kids and newcomers. We can see how busy the lift/slope is from our balcony every morning. After a long... More

Cannot ask for a better hotel for skiing st Niseko. Stayed at a 1- bedroom with my friend for 4 nights. The hotel is clean, staff is courteous and helpful, and the ski-in ski-out convenience make this simply the perfect location for couples like us who have been making annual visits to Niseko. Try it out. You'll love it as... More

We stayed here for a week 8-15 March 2014. We are a small family of 2 adults and a 4 year old. The one bedroom apartment was perfect for us, the sofa bed could easily be folded away each morning leaving a small, but functional sitting area. The kitchen had all you needed with the bonus of a washing machine... More

We had a group of 5 mates staying in a 3 bedroom apartment, there was plenty of room for everyone to make themselves at home and the location was the best I have found for any snow trip I have done.
