For lovers of powder runs niseko was truely amazing - who needs backcountry when there is sooooo much powder on piste?

However for those who like blue skies - be prepared for low light, closed in visibility and wind that shreds!

Ah but it is that which brings the white dust from heaven

I came here last year and loved it.

Snow was great peole are lovely. This year theres more aussies than japanese. Some of the bars are closing early thinga are going missing. It is getting very crowded and tracked out much earlier than last year.

It got warm for a few days and snow became heavy like skiing in oz and skiing on piste is dull

Niseko Grand Hirafu review by reggy
Had awesome time overall. Loved the freezing temps which preserved the snow. Snow quality 10 out of 10 although we didnt get the deep powder that this resort normally offers.

The piste map isnt drawn too accurately so the three resorts arent that easily linked which is interesting in the normal foggy conditions (bring your goggles). Run signage needs to be increased.

Yes,the resort isn't overly steep but the terrain through the widely spaced trees makes up for it.

Niseko Grand Hirafu review by tmac272
Niseko Hirafu is a powder snow factory. I guess this is the reason so many fellow Australians have made the pilgrimage to Hokkaido to discover how real powder feels. It is great value for money with the 3 main sections of Niseko providing plenty of variety. The off piste skiing is fantastic, with great rewards dealt to those who are willing to undertake a short walk. Its worth checking out the Miharashi Trees, Strawberry Fields, and Annupurri bowls for those
