This has been my 5th or 6th time to Niseko hirafu. The powder snow never fails. It can get very windy and poor visibility at times. So bring goggles that have clear lens in case. Temperature can range from -8 to -15c. Not an issue for European skiers who are used to high altitude skiing. We Asians are spoilt with... More

It's a long 12 hr flight from the UK but , to experience light airy powder snow , it has to be worth it. Second time here and skiing was excellent . We skied through the deep powder with our Hanazono mountain guide , pete, a friendly and welcoming aussie for 7 days, climbed to the peak via the 'pizza'... More

With a large amount of Australian investment and the resort being heavily marketed in Australia, it is not surprising that the majority of visitors here are Australian (except in Golden Week). Having said that, the place is still Japanese, the food on the mountain is Japanese and the snow is definitelyt not Australian style snow. In the short time we... More

I was lucky to have come on a trip exploring multiple Hokkaido ski resorts, and this one's definitely the last on the list. It's crowded, the snow was average, quickly gets skied out, the runs very very up and down, and we explored the whole mountain with the guides. There are some fun galleys but I would choose a less...

As Australians we have fairly poor ski fields so we looked overseas. You can't do much better than Niseko. Huge quantities of great quality powder snow, excellent variety of terrain and difficulty levels, same time zone (more or less) for Australians and no altitude issues. Not much blue sky skiing, as it snows a lot. But lots of excellent accomodation... More

With the fastest gondola in Niseko, you can ride up the mountain in comfort before your first ski run. With three access gates and one especially for ski schools, weather permitting, queues move fast. The adjacent mountain centre offers a cafeteria with lunch options, although hot chocs seem to carry a mark-up over many other places in Niseko.

Niseko Mountain is one of favourite ski resorts/towns in the world and believe me I've been to a few. I love this place and regularly use the #. It has something for all abilities, from beginner to expert. There are amazing restaurants although the food on the mountain is mostly functional. {There's a first class coffee hut at Hanazono though,... More

The skiing here is really good. The snow is great. It can get pretty cold. A couple of times during our stay they closed some lifts because of high winds. There are plenty of places to eat on the mountain, quite expensive as usual for a ski mountain. Our favorite was Ace Hill Cafe - a really good meeting place... More
