Plan Ahead for Next Winter

  • By Clarence

Niseko is fast becoming one of the most popular ski destinations in the world. People travel from all over the world to experience the powdery winter wonderland on offer. As a result, planning ahead for the winter season is essential. We can help you stay on top of things and make sure you don't miss out on anything.

There are so many reasons to visit Niseko during the winter season. The 2023-2024 winter season was fantastic and Niseko is only getting better year on year. If you need any further convincing we will explore the best parts of this past winter season and what there is to look forward to for the upcoming season. 

The beginning of 2024 brought an unprecedented amount of snow to Niseko. With approximately 92cm of powder snow falling in a 2 day period. Every year the four resorts see snow so fluffy and light, skiing or snowboarding on it feels like floating. This can only be a good sign of the snow to come this winter season. 

Hirafu's New Gondola

There are also new improvements coming to Grand Hirafu that will make the 2024/2025 winter season even better. The Ace Quad Lift 2, which has been in operation since 1985, will be upgraded to a 10 person gondola just in time for the snow. Not only will this provide warmth and comfort when travelling up the mountain, but it will also significantly reduce wait times.
