Niseko Ski Resort


The Niseko United ski resorts are widely recognised as offering some of the most consistent, light, dry powder snow conditions in the world. And it is not just quality of snow that Niseko is famous for, but quantity too. Photographs of snow covered vehicles, and even buildings are favourites on social media every season. Visitors to Niseko share in the excitement of what can feel like an endless supply of beautifully light, fluffy snow. Relaxing in an onsen or with a glass of wine during dinner and watching the snow fall outside the window, anticipating even more waist deep, untracked powder, is just one of many reasons people return every year.


Niseko has many other attractions too; access off-piste terrain suitable for lower intermediate to expert skiers and snowboarders; experience the exhilarating wonder of fresh powder snow under lights with the world's most extensive night skiing; and enjoy your nights out as much as your days on the mountain with incredible bars and countless restaurants to suit all tastes, from cosy izakaya to Michelin star fine dining. Find out everything you need to know about Niseko ski resort below!
