Location is perfect, Close to Ski in. Very warm and neat. The manager picked us up from the station and took us out on shopping trip. We stayed in a 3 bedrooms and it has magnificent Yotei view! It is extremely good value compares to everything else in the village.

We travelled in 2013 but only managed to pen this down now. We stay at the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, Mountain View resort and its really value for money. There is only one gondola at Grand Hirafu and the apartment is just around 100-200 metres away from that. Spotlessly clean and kept warm and toasty, the apartment is a fantastic... More

We had a fabulous holiday staying at this apartment. Location is spot on. It was a few minutes walk out the door to the ski lifts. . The apartments were nicely furnished and everything you would need on holiday is in the apartment. Some days we cooked which was nice to have home cooked food whilst on holidays (the management...

Quite simply, this is an excellent place to be based in Niseko. It's a couple of minutes walk to the Hirafu gondola and the free shuttle bus to Hanazono stops a dozen metres or so from the door. The rooms are great; we had the studio apartment with views of Mt. Yotei and had more than enough space. Tim, who... More

We stayed as 3 couples in the 3 bedroom apartment, had king beds, spacious and a lovely view of Mt Yotei across the valley. Very clean and felt quite new. ~3min walk to the gondola and a 5-10min walk to all the restaurants. Snow was amazing. Our host was very helpful, especially with offering to drive us to the large...

The experience of staying at Fresh Powder in Niseko was fantastic. In particular the location and the quality of the apartment. Such a good location that in a 3 week stay I never once had to use the resort shuttle bus! The apartment is modern, spacious and spotless clean. I will be back next year!

Fresh Powder Apartments in both Niseko and Furano are located an easy walk to the lifts, restaurants, and convenience stores. We stayed at both resorts this year. The manager, Tim will organise transfers from all airports and between to the two resorts approx 4 hrs depending on road conditions. The three bed apartment in Niseko has a great view of... More

Excellent value. Andrew was a super host, and helped us arrange transportation as necessary. Great location, only 200M from the Hirafu gondola. Our room was clean, with a well equipped kitchen, new flat screen TV, and large bathroom. Everything was within easy walking distance, and Fresh Powder even has a shuttle you to the Kutchan market twice a week if... More

The location of these apartments is awesome, right near the lifts and central to everything. I stayed in the 2 bed apartment with friends and it's like a home away from home, with plenty of room, and the staff were great in organising transport and lift tickets. I'll definitely be returning next season. The skiing in Niseko is great. If... More
