Had a fantastic 8 days boarding here in February in which it snowed every day. The mountain is a decent size with plenty to do and deep powder every day. The mountain is not very steep and does not have many challenging runs but with powder they were perfect. One of the drawbacks though is that they close the top... More

We stayed at the Hilton and went skiing at Niseko Village. Wonderful experience of booking for ski gear at the shop and ski lessons for the kids. Ski instructors were fun and made the classes interesting. We signed up for both ski and snowboard lessons. Gondola and chair lifts were good and conveniently located. We especially enjoy the fine powder... More

This is like a retro modern gondola. The slopes are great. Many choices of trails trees and groomers. Hilton hotel at the bottom interesting roof line. You can ski all the resorts with one RFID card.

I've tried skiing both here and Annupuri, and prefer this area. There is a wider range of trails to choose from. The green trails going down to the Hilton are gentle and suitable for beginner skiiers. We were lucky and had a full clear view of Mt. Yotei in front which was breathtaking.

This is a nice and popular place for skiing and snowboarding. They also provide school for beginner, for both adults and kids. They also have other activities like snow rafting, which i tried, it was fun, but not very fun if you dont wear proper attire. As it is very cold.

Niseko is a great place to ski. The service at the bottom and top of lifts is very good, but the state of some of the chairlifts is disgraceful. It is amazing to see a number of chairlifts without any sort of safety bar. Some are so low in the back that you don't know in which direction you're more... More

This was my first ever snow boarding trip and I loved it. Lot's of affordable ski rental (Rythem) excellent accommodation options and plenty of instructors. There was a good range of runs for my level and I chose a different one each day. Only problem - the restaurants at the bottom of the family slopes are way over priced.

Before coming to Niseko, I was told the powder was amazing. In the first few days of my stay, there was snow but nothing amazing. The last few days it has poured down with snow and has created mountain-top powder that is absolutely incredible! I have skiied around the world and can easily say this is the best powder I... More

Good variety of runs. A couple of improvements would be good though. The runs are not very clearly marked. Maps are plentiful but a few more signs would be helpful. Also, there are a few places where a 'magic carpet' or some other sort of helper would be great. For instance, At the top of the Niseko Gondola if you... More
