Niseko is known for having some of the best ski terrain and skiing conditions in all of Japan (you can track the weather here). With the best powder, the best off-piste terrain and the best slackcountry awards under its belt, Niseko truly has a lot going for it. Best of all, Niseko is aimed towards skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. Whether you're a beginner and are just learning about to ski or are a professional boarder, there are a wide variety of slopes that allow you to master your skills in a safe setting.
Groomed runs are more ideal for families and beginners while backcountry and off-piste skiing are excellent options for more advanced skiers and boarders. One major feature that sets Niseko apart from many other ski destinations is that alpine and tree skiing can both be enjoyed here, bringing you the best of both worlds.
The weather in Niseko is typically cold and gloomy which brings a massive amount of powdery snow to its slopes. While you won't be working on your tan while at this ski destination, you will get to enjoy some of the best skiing conditions in this side of the world.
Hooded chairs and gondolas are equipped to deal with harsh weather conditions, keeping you warm and dry while you may your way to the top of the slopes.
