Japan’s most famous and internationally-respected ski resort, Niseko is the largest ski resort in the country. Made up of four interconnected ski zones: Grand Hirafu, Niseko Village, Annupuri, and Hanazono, meaning there is a huge area to explore.

Here you’ll find plenty of terrain and variety, with incredible amounts of powder snow and great tree skiing on the slopes of huge volcanos. Niseko can also be a great base to explore nearby ski resorts and backcountry areas, along with ample off-piste and cat skiing operations. Family-friendly ski resorts can be found here, with child care, in-accommodation babysitting, and kids’ group ski lessons to take advantage of.

Nearby is the main village of Hirafu, famous for its lively nightlife, fine restaurants and cosmopolitan buzz, all catering to Western requirements. Perfect for those wanting to experience Japanese snow, without the worry of being unable to find an English-speaker.

A characterful village vibe, plentiful activities, brilliant shops and restaurants, luxurious accommodation and a very vibrant nightlife, along with some of the world’s best skiing, Niseko is a place you won’t want to miss.

The best time to visit Niseko changes depending on individual tastes. December (early season) can be an excellent time to visit as the slopes are quiet but the powder availability is somewhat hit and miss. Mid-season (January and February) in Niskeo is the most popular time to visit as skiers seek some of the world's best powder. Finally, March can be a great time to ski in Niseko as the snowfall is still consistent but the skies clear a little so sunny days are more frequent than earlier in the season.
