Niseko Japan, White Christmas

A White Christmas in Niseko Village Japan

Posted on December 15th, 2017 in Blog

Looking for somewhere exciting to set off to last minute over the Christmas break? Escape to a winter wonderland that is a little bit different from the norm.

Niseko Ski Resort, is officially Japan’s #1 snow resort, which is located in Hokkaido, 2.5hrs drive from Chitose Airport. Comprised of 4 interlinked ski resorts – Grand Hirafu, Hanazono, Niseko Village and An’nupuri – it is renowned for its consistency and quality of powder snow throughout the winter. Averaging around 15m+ of snow each season, Niseko is famous for its wide open powder bowls and tree runs.

Niseko is suited to skiers and boarders of all ability levels. There are a large variety of groomed runs that are ideal for families, beginners and intermediates. Another element that sets Niseko apart from many other Japanese ski resorts is the combination of both alpine and tree skiing!

A shuttle bus or a door-to-door transfer is the best way to get to Niseko from either Sapporo or the airport. See the Niseko travel page for more information or you can book your Niseko airport shuttle transport here.
