Japan’s largest and best-known ski resort, the quality and quantity of snow here is unparalleled - for powder, it doesn’t get much better than a ski holiday in Niseko.

With around 14 metres of snow falling each season, the skiing here is exceptional. Look forward to ungroomed bowls and world-class tree runs (Strawberry Fields is amazing), while the Niseko Gates lead to unpatrolled terrain that’s best explored with a guide.

Your ski pass covers the four interlinked areas above Niseko Village, Hirafu, Annupuri and Hanazono. There are groomed runs for every level, as well as night skiing until 9 pm - go early to watch the sunset over Mt Yotei; it’s simply incredible.

The best way to end your ski day is in a Japanese onsen (hot spring) and you’ll find the best choice in Hirafu or within the hotels. Bars and restaurants are another highlight, with everything from pizzerias, izakayas (Japanese pubs) and gourmet restaurants, while the supermarket in Kutchan Town is best for self-catering.

From Niseko, it’s easy to make day trips to other local ski resorts, or even change base with a Japanese Ski Safari. Our tailored trips make it easy to add more culture and we highly recommend a visit to Kyoto or Tokyo to round off your trip.

"Having lived and done seasons in Japan, Niseko is still my favourite resort, with the most reliable snow record of any resort I know. Not forgetting to mention it is a foodie's heaven, and soaking in the onsen after days skiing can't be topped."
