We loved our time in Hokkaido but next year we are going to go for a change and are thinking about some places in Nagano/Niigata. The snow hasn't been as consistent down there though by the looks which is a bit of a worry.
Just wanted to add to this. We spent out holiday split between Furano > Sapporo > Niseko this season. In terms of snow, Niseko was best. But we enjoyed the more laid back feel of Furano. Sapporo is a great city too, so glad that we spent a few days there. Highly recommended.
