The best is still the conventient ski in ski out condition. Although the family chair lift was super crowded during Chinese New Year time. It took 20+ minutes. But once you go up, we hoped on other lifts and go around. Alpen Ridge two bedroom apartment is decent sized with contemporary decoration.

This is the 4th time to Niseko and our 3rd stay at the Alpen Ridge - each time we book through Polly Po at SkiJapan. Polly is excellent, she arranges everything (except flights) from the moment we arrive in Sapporo to the time we leave (private bus transfer etc). The Alpen Ridge has to be the best option in Niseko,... More

We are currently staying two glorious weeks in a one bedroom apartment with views of the ski slopes here at the Alpen Ridge Apartments. It's on the slope right next to the Ace Family Pair Chair Lift.

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
