NISEKO

Three world-class resorts in one

Niseko is a winter wonderland composed of 38 Gondolas connected by 61 pistes with 15 metres of powder snow brought by Northwest winds straight from Siberia. These resorts are linked by ski lifts and shuttle buses via a single pass, making it a prized location for international skiers, including 10,000 Australian skiers last year. This area has a unique international and Japanese feel, with lodgings
and other facilities catering for tourists, including luxury apartments and services available in English.

The Niseko Grand Hirafu Ski Resort is geared for all the needs of overseas skiers, including equipment rental, convenience stores and a pub, as well as ski lessons and tours in English.

The Niseko Village Ski Resort is a luxurious four season resort with sweeping panoramas of the dormant volcano, Mount Yotei.

The various slopes even have memorable names such as “Cruiser” and “Pure Magic” attached to them.

Niseko An’nupuri, which includes the smaller ski area of Hanazono, has 13 mostly wide runs aimed at beginners, and is open from December until May.
