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.
