Niseko is a town on Japan’s northern Hokkaido Island, near the dormant volcano of Mt. Yōtei. The primary mountain is Mt. Niseko-Annupuri around whose slopes operate four major ski centers.
The unique geography and weather patterns of the region ensure Niseko-Annupuri consistently receives deep, light and soft powder snow every year. Cold moist air blows across the Sea of Japan from Siberia and when it reaches the Niseko mountains it falls from the sky in great fluffy snowflakes! And with sub-zero average temperatures at the base of the mountain the powder quality is maintained throughout the entire season. Niseko has now been voted as one of the world's Top 10 ski resorts!
The largest resports are Niseko Mt. Resort Grand Hirafu, which covers the Hirafu and Hanazono areas, Niseko Village and Niseko Annupri.
While each resort sells its own lift passes, our pick is the Niseko United All Mountain Pass. This is your quickest and most convenient passport to all the best Niseko has to offer!
