Niseko is a nice ski area. Everyone can choose the slopes they like. The backcountry is why you come here. Try the gates on a powday.

This is the way to get back to the top of the mountain if you did the hike to the summit and ski down annupuri bowl. The first time we went the line was huge cause so many people skied down. Lots of pushing and...More
