Niseko Japan

Chairlift, Niseko Ski Resort, Japan

Niseko is probably the best known of all the Japanese resorts, based on the northerly Island of Hokkaido and is split across 3 ‘resorts’; Grand Hirafu, Higashiyama and Annupuri. With a hub of lively après bars and restaurants based at Hirafu, it is here that the majority of skiers spend their time. Added to the fact that the mountain receives in excess of 50 foot of dry, light powder every year; it really does make it a fantastic all round skiing experience. There is easy access to the slopes, which stay open until 9pm each night on specially floodlit runs to ensure you make the most out of your day before enjoying the Japanese style nightlife.
