Niseko is home to some of the most consistent powder snowfalls and powder skiing in the world. A typical day in Niseko may see you floating your way through waist deep perfect powder for 1,000 vertical metres, within very close proximity from the resort boundaries. With such an abundance of powder, the need to hike to find untracked areas is minimal, our tours (unless otherwise requested) are based on lift access side country which offer minimum hike and maximum descent.

We understand that your time in Niseko is limited, allow our guides to show you the best powder runs Niseko has to offer and ski or ride bottomless powder all week long. We recommend that you book a tour early in your stay to get the most of your Niseko Holiday experience, this will also give you the opportunity to reschedule, if necessary.
