Niseko ski property

Exceptional powder, long ski seasons and natural hot spring onsens to unwind in after a day on the slopes make Niseko, and neighbouring Kiroro, a ski lover’s paradise. As if this weren’t temptation enough, the new crop of luxury ski properties in these beautiful parts of Hokkaido, Japan, may well seal the deal on your next second home…

Niseko is renowned for its scenery – especially the iconic Mount Yotei, which serves as a stunning backdrop and is almost as famous as Mount Fuji. Its ski slopes receive an average of 14 metres of consistently good snowfall each year. Niseko Ski Resort, which comprises the Grand Hirafu, Hanazono, Niseko Village and An’nupuri resorts, boasts amazing tree runs and off-piste powder skiing.

An hour away, Kiroro is considered a little more serene – and the ski community’s best-kept secret. Powder skiers and snowboarders are at home here, and the average annual snowfall is an astonishing 21 metres.

Magnificent mountains and birch forests make for magical scenes during the long ski season, which runs from December to April and sometimes stretches into May. And as the snow melts, the green season takes over with picturesque spots for golfing, hiking and biking. The region also comes alive with events from the annual Pacific Music Festival to the Sapporo Beer Festival.
