Snowfall Season to date: 535cm (212 inches)
Widely regarded as home to some of the world’s best powder skiing, Niseko is famed for its staggering amounts of snowfall throughout winter. Off to a slower start than usual, Niseko has been making up for lost time, with non-stop snow reported since Christmas.
Comprised of four mountain resorts on Niseko Annupuri, seasonal winds from Eurasia and moisture from the Sea of Japan have resulted in some of the driest, lightest powder imaginable.
Wide open pistes, incredible tree runs through bamboo forests and backcountry and night skiing make Niseko ideal for all types of skiers and snowboarders. For those seeking fresh tracks, hiking trails lead from the highest lifts to the summit, and amazing lines are guaranteed.
