Snow dog is modern, convenient, comfortable and most of all peaceful. If you are looking to enjoy family time in beautiful snowy surrounding, this is definitely a great choice. Not far from Hirafu for those in needs of nightlife and/or skiing there.

My family (3 adults and 2 kids) had a great time staying in Snow Dog. The staff were very friendly and their email replies (prior to the trip) were very helpful. Service: The airport transfer were well organised and there were people who were waiting for us along the way upon arrival at the New Chitose Airport. The shuttle transfers to Hirafu were good and I would like to compliment Laura and Ian for doing a great job. There was a small hiccup once but the driver apologised sincerely and it never happened again. They were informative and very friendly. The staff were helpful with suggestions and I think it's great that they themselves have a passion to ski and snowboard that talks around the topic was so easy. The apartment: It was very clean and there were so many amenities within the apartment itself (wifi, huge refrigerator, dish washer, washing machine, dryer) that really made our stay comfortable. View: The view was perfect as we wanted to play with snow and it was just outside our apartment! We watched our first snowfall and my boys built their very first snow man. It was memorable. I think it helped that we came off peak so that the place was a little more to ourselves. The off side was that some of the restaurants were closed. Overall, we had a very good stay and highly recommend Snow Dog.

This place was absolutely perfect! For starters, airport transfers were simple. There were people from Ski Japan waiting at Chitose Airport to point me to a bus to Hirafu, where I was picked up by another staff member in a minivan for the 10min drive to Snow Dog. Getting around was just as easy - the regular bus from the front of Snow Dog goes up to the Hilton ski field, and into Hirafu town. It is also close enough to the Niseko bus stop (at the bottom of the street) to use that to get to Annapurni, or into town, if you miss the Snow Dog bus, or it is not timed right for you. Staff were super-helpful. I arranged all my gear hire and lift passes prior to travel. There were absolutely no hassles - told them what I wanted, and sent them the money, and it was all sorted when I arrived. Prices seemed comparable to other companies in town, so it was easy just to organise through the hotel. My room was a lovely little studio. It was awesome to have my own kitchenette, and my own washing machine in the room. The room was spacious, with big windows that looked out over the snowy area behind the building. It was really beautiful and peaceful. The location was lovely, being just outside of the hustle and bustle of town. It was really nice and quiet. But at the same time, close enough to get to town easily for dinner. The bus runs late enough at night that you can easily get back after dinner or drinks. I will definitely be booking again if I come back to Japan next winter!

Perfect place to stay in Niseko. We enjoyed so much with my friends, nice restaurant down of the building, really close to the slope (and the best zone of the resort), definitely a place to come back next winter.
