Worth the Long Haul

Japan might not be top of your list for a ski holiday, but trust us, it’s worth the long-haul flight. The snow is unbelievably good - there’s 50ft annually which means the season stretches through from December to the beginning of March. The powder is dream-like and frankly, it has to be skied to be believed.

Ski runs in Hokkaido, Japan (Hirafu, Niseko and Mount Yotei)
Niseko is overlooked by an enormous extinct volcano

The slopes, scenery and service in resort has everything to rival the finest of the USA and Canada’s snow destinations. The views are stunning with Niseko overlooked by an enormous extinct volcano and any ski trip here isn’t complete without a visit to one of the many natural hot springs and Onsen (bathing) so beloved by the Japanese.

Niseko – an enormous mountain in the shadow of an extinct volcano – is divided into three separate resorts: Niseko Hirafu has some seriously funky shopping as well as fantastic skiing, Niseko Village – which boasts fantastic ski in and out accommodation and Annupuri. The vibe, although still Japanese, is pretty westernized.
