Long runs with JAPOW you won’t find anywhere else
Niseko Village, with a stunning 27 courses, has the most runs in Niseko United, and has 3 gondolas that make it easy to get around the resort. Many of the slopes near the base are mellow, perfect for powder beginners and first-timers on fat skis. The upper parts of the resort house courses irresistible to seasoned riders, such as steep surfaces, ungroomed courses, and forest courses winding through primeval woods. What makes Niseko Village so special is the length and diversity seen in the courses. Niseko Village is the only place in Japan where you can powder-cruise on such long runs with a stunning view of Mt. Yotei, also known as “Yebisu Fuji.”
The irresistible sidecountry, Mizuno-no-sawa
Mizuno-no-sawa, the sidecountry area to skier’s left of the Niseko Village Ski Resort, is partly avalanche controlled by the resort and accessible via the gate at the entrance. Only advanced riders with safety gear and knowledge of the “Niseko Rules”- and, of course, the will to follow them- are allowed into the area. The gates are opened from 9:00 to 14:00, depending on the weather condition and avalanche risk. If you’re a powder hunter confident in your ability, why not don your safety gear and give it a try?
Luxurious stays and lots to do after riding
Niseko Village Ski Resort is right next to the resort’s Shopping and Dining Area complex, and 4 resort hotels: The Green Leaf Niseko Village, Hinode Hills Niseko Village, Kasara Niseko Village, and Higashiyama Niseko Village, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve. You can experience a luxurious, convenient stay in the ski-in-ski-out-like resort complex. In Niseko Village, the fun doesn’t end at enjoying JAPOW. A stay at one of the hotels can grant you the ultimate relaxation with great hospitality, and after a day on the slopes you can experience Japan’s traditional craft and food culture.
Snow activities in Niseko
Even if the visibility too poor to go riding because of a blizzard, or strong winds make it unable for chairlifts and gondolas to run, Niseko Village still has lots of fun snow activities. The resort offers more activities than any other, such as the Snowmobile Adventure, Cross-country Ski Course, Snow Rafting, and Guided Snowshoes Tour, all of which are more than worth a try. Spending the morning doing one of these activities and going to an onsen in the afternoon, for example, would be a great way to spend the day even if you can’t get on the slopes.

Yukichichibu is a must–see for any visit to Niseko. It is located 15 minutes by car from the center of Niseko, and 600 meters above sea level. With a view from Oyanuma Pond to Nitonupuri, this place has a lovely, expansive atmosphere. Feel the nature of Hokkaido directly on your skin in the many hot spring pools. The waters are effective on rough skin, minor wounds, and for recovering from overwork.
