What’s happening today

Conditions don’t look that good today so you might want to hold off until they improve and then try…

Snorkel – After a big storm of Niseko’s finest white powder snow you will need a snorkel as you descend down this ski run located in the Niseko Village ski ground.

Ukairo – The highest green ski run in all Niseko ski grounds and made up of switch back turns along a cat track in the Niseko Village ski ground.

Wonderland – It’s at the top of the Niseko Village resort and this red ski run is a true winter wonderland for skiers and snowboarders.

Namara – A red ski run that’s long, wide and open letting you drop down a large stretch of the Niseko Village ski ground.

That Spring Feeling

Although today looks like it’s going to be a typical Niseko stormy winter day, yesterday we got a taste of Spring.

The town snow clearers must be catching up on work because they’ve started widening the roads again.

Wide roads again as last

I missed this morning’s sunrise, but yesterday’s was something to remember…
