Just returned from our 5th trip in 12 years. Great to see many changes, but based on increased prices, bigger crowds and lift lines (...only at base) and the fact you cannot book a dinner anywhere, I think we are now tapping out.
Fair enough about the lack of notice by government for Niseko to re-open but to see so many tourists sitting around with their kids etc in the snow eating out of food vans on the street is pretty ordinary (....so was the food). Luckily we had a great kitchen and did cook ups each night and actually saved a lot of $$.....but we are on holidays.
As always epic,.....no I mean EPIC snow and really that's what its about.
However, every time I do Japan, I book Canada as I need better terrain. Great memories but after going to a lot of other resorts in Japan, there's better options out there.

Niseko Village ski resort offers not many runs and the runs could be very narrow. It may get boring after a couple of goes but the good thing is that the whole Niseko resort is interconnected so it is easy to access Hirafu, Hanazono or Annapuri area.

This applies to all 4 ski areas of Niseko (Niseko Village, Hanazono, Grand Hirafu and Annapurni):
Positives:
1. Great powder;
2. Good variety of piste length and difficulty;
3. International vibe;
4. Good variety of accomodation and dining options;

Negatives:
1. Irritating loudspeakers playing 80s music on some of the pistes;
2. Very poor lift infrastructure.- There is huge investment in accomodation , but very little in the lift infrastructure- THIS IS SCANDALOUS - given the huge amount earnt by the resorts from the many skiers visiting every year;

We stayed at Niseko Village which was far quieter than Hirafu. We enjoyed the skiing but it became very warm when we were there which made for sping skiing. Small in terms of area, especially when there is a whiteout or the upper chairs are on wind hold which happened quite a few time. It wasn't their best season so have to take that into account. Can only imagine it would be better with more snow but the whiteouts and wind are always going to be there making it difficult to get across the 4 ski areas

Lots of fun long runs with amazing views. Lovely tree runs along the postures too. Lifts a bit slow but rarely any queues (handy if the gondola is very busy)

The village has many slopes along with restaurants and cafes. However slightly steep for beginners and a bit confusing due to the many intersecting slopes. Would not reccomend for early beginners

First time there 2 yrs ago, the snow condition was unbelievably amazing. So much snow!!! We loved it and decided to go back again this year. Not as great as last time but still good experience with sun out. Such a beautiful ski resort. Would be back again.

Think there has been some chat about snow conditions but compared to Europe we have found it amazing and can’t fault the powder

I guess this place could get very busy and it would be awful. Not many pistes or places to go off the lifts and you could do the whole area in two days.

The Hilton is the main resort here. The building looked rather old and run down from the outside.

The runs were mainly for beginners and children as the slopes were very flat and wide.

Duirng my visit at the end of December, for the few intermediate slopes, there were not groomed and were in poor conditions. The ground and trees were exposed. It was rather dangerous to ski around here.
