Ski Holidays in Niseko, Japan

Niseko holidays are the first call when looking into a trip to the powder fields of Japan. With an average of 8m snow a season Niseko is officially the second snowiest resort in the world. Val d'Isere may be where the Iglu team head for our end of season trip, but there is not a member of the ski team who doesn't want to experince the legendary snow, tree line skiing and pillow lines that Niseko has become renwoned for.

Niseko Ski Resort

Though a trip to Niseko requires a thriteen hour flight to Tokyo or Osaka, followed by a short hop to Sapporo, the journey is certainly worth while. The volcanic island of Hokkaido pulls in northerly winds and an average of over 50ft of snow each season to provide a skiing paradise.

Niseko is made up of three interlinked areas, Hirafu, Higashiyama and Annapuri. Niseko Hirafu is regarded as the main resort from the three and is where you will find the majority of accommodation that we offer. The village has a range of funky bars, shops and restaurants on offer providing surprisingly good value.

The nearby Mount Youtei dominates the views from Niseko, the classic-shaped extinct volcano is similar to the iconic Mount Fuji. The ski domain offers superb ‘ski-what-you-can-see’ terrain and lots of off-piste. With an average of over 50 feet of light, dry powder snow every winter, 3000 vertical feet of amazing terrain and 40 ski lifts, Niseko is a big mountain with the terrain and snow conditions to suit all standards.
