I have stayed at Hooting Owl Lodge two years in a row now for a week each time and always felt a very welcoming community atmosphere.
Each morning is started with a big gourmet breakfast prepared by the wonderful hosts.
Everyone will chat about where the best snow is for the day and then head out in groups to the hill. Often day trips are organised for anyone who wants to tag along.
The lodge is located in Niseko Village, just down the road from the Greenleaf and Hilton complexes where you will find restaurants, bars, the Green Leaf onsen and the Hilton Gondola to get you up the hill.
There are also a few restaurants on the same block as the lodge.
A bus stops regularly across the road from the lodge that will take you around to Hirafu and the other Niseko areas.
Staying at Hooting Owl is always a big highlight of my trips to Japan.
I recommend them to anyone travelling to Niseko.
