Niseko is truly THE powder skier’s paradise. Niseko may as well be a synonym for snow, as it never stops snowing here. Here you will find something for every skier: wide open powder fields, immaculately groomed runs, exciting tree skiing and an abundance of off-piste terrain and backcountry skiing.

This area of Japan’s amazing skiing is most famous for its pillows of snow that you can explode through, trails of white smoke following your every turn and face shots that go over your head. Tell Me More! »
