Niseko Mountain is one of favourite ski resorts/towns in the world and believe me I've been to a few. I love this place and regularly use the #. It has something for all abilities, from beginner to expert. There are amazing restaurants although the food on the mountain is mostly functional. {There's a first class coffee hut at Hanazono though,... More

The skiing here is really good. The snow is great. It can get pretty cold. A couple of times during our stay they closed some lifts because of high winds. There are plenty of places to eat on the mountain, quite expensive as usual for a ski mountain. Our favorite was Ace Hill Cafe - a really good meeting place... More

First time in "Niseko", and was just lucky to have booked accommodation in Hirafu. Everything is located here, so if you stay in Annapuri, Niseko, or Hanazone you'll need car, bus or taxi to get to the main shops, bars and restaurants. So, although there are 4 resorts on the mountain, Hirafu us definitely the one you want to stay... More

The topic at dinner over the last few nights has been Niseko vs Vail. For Niseko, we like its proximity to Australia, time zone synchronicity and Japanese culture/food. But the skiing just isn't up there. Old facilities. Short runs. Not enough black. Yes, there can be great powder, but that = lots of clouds and not a lot of lovely... More

This review covers the period between Dec 30 - Jan 7, 2017. Niseko United is made up of 4 mountains: AnNupuri, Niseko Village, Grand Hirafu and Hanazono. The combined size of the 4 mountain (excluding off piste areas) is nearly identical to Killington of Vermont in terms of vertical drop and skiable acerage, but Niseko gets 2.5x the annual snow...

Third time at Niseko and each time I find a favourite area to snowboard in! Great, fantastic brilliant tree snoboarding after a night of dumping snow. If you get a blue sky day the hike to the top is well worth it for the view and picture taking. From beginners to experts this resort has everything and a great night... More

No doubt the best ski resort in terms of powder, entertainment, food, and infrastructure. Its 2hr drive from Sapporo airport. Suggest stay

Great place to ski and board for all levels. Lots of good food on the mountain. The terrain offers plenty of challenges and the views from the top are second to none.
