Winter & Summer In Niseko

Niseko is most renowned for its gorgeous winter season, which runs from November to March and features mild powder snowfall. "Niseko United," the major ski area, is made up of four interconnected ski resorts: Annupuri, Niseko Village, Grand Hirafu, and Hanazono.

The ski area is one of the greatest in Hokkaido, with long runs throughout the resort and restricted back country access. An "All Mountain" lift pass gives visitors access to the entire ski slope, allowing them to ride a wide range of terrain.
