Considered to be the most famous mountain resort site in Hokkaido, Niseko is a town located in Abuta District, in Japan. With six different ski areas, Niseko has a huge variety of hotels and accommodation offers to suit all tastes and pockets.
Voted in 2008 as one of the world’s top ten ski resorts, it is also a great place for practicing all kinds of outdoors activities. If you are planning to travel to Niseko during the summer, this mountain resort is also great for practicing sports such as golf, kayaking, horseback or trekking.
However, Niseko is primarily known as a ski resort. One of the things which make this mountain so special is that its northern location favours the presence of fronts that come from Siberia, something which ensures heavenly ski conditions throughout the season. With over 49 ft. of powder snow fall every year, it is a paradise for skiers. The season runs from November until May and with 50 km of slopes, there is a ski run for everyone at Niseko.
Of the six ski areas in which the complex is divided, the main four are interconnected and you can practice your favourite sport in the four of them with just one ski pass. There are also several ski schools if you want to improve your skiing skills or if you are trying skiing for the first time, but they also offer other activities such as telemarking or ice climbing.
After skiing, Niseko’s main town of Hirafu has a great variety of restaurants and bars to spend the evening at. There are also a great variety of shops and entertainment offers. Whether you are into skiing or not, book your hotel now and enjoy the entertainment and sports offer of one of the greatest mountain resorts in the world.
