Loved the mountains, enjoyed excellent snowfall. Magical place at night also. The township has excellent choice of restaurants and it's easy to get to the gondola or chair lifts via regular shuttles.

Although snow conditions over the last two years have not been ideal, Nisseko resort and the surrounding mountains are known for some of the best powder and snow board trails in the world. Tourists from all over have contributed to different lodging options and prices. Many of the locals speak a bit of English and the surrounding areas have some... More

Great powder indeed. One of the best places I have every experienced. Tree skiing is wonderful and there is lot of variety in the four areas. You can go up high (all relative as the peak is on 1300m) or stay low depending on the weather. The off piste skiing is extremely well organized with the 'Gates' leading you into... More

This hill offers a wide variety of terrain and great ski conditions. Runs are short but so were the line ups.

Niseko has become the destination of choice for powder skiing aficionados from all around the world. Great tree skiing and off-piste experience. stay away from the lower slopes as they are crowded with first time skiers...

Good selection of runs but could be served by better trail marking signs. Also, if you are coming from the Niseko Gondola side be prepared for a hike to get over to the Hirafu slopes side. A magic carpet or some other sort of helper conveyance would be a wise addition (Attention management).

Niseko is a great place to go skiing back country and among the trees ... and when the snow is deep. Few resorts can beat a good day in Niseko. It can though be busy at times ... and windy ... and not so steep ... but with >20cm of fresh white pow it's magic !

The snow here is really worth the long lines. I have never experienced tree runs as great. I would skip hirafu and head to the other resorts and just get the whole mountain pass. Just to avoid the tourists.

This is a great field for all sorts of ski & snowboarder skill levels. There are options for everyone and fresh snow is generally plentiful. The village at the bottom of Hirafu is extremely well setup with shuttles to move you around from A to B, especially handy when you're kitted up in your snow gear. The runs on Hirafu... More
