Treat yourself to a special holiday by checking out ski holiday specials in Niseko! Niseko is a gorgeous little paradise on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. Serviced by the airport New Chitose located approximately two and a half hours drive away, Niseko is popular ski destination owing to steady, soft, powder snow and a picturesque location. While it may lack some of the polish of other ski resorts, it’s rural charm and many other advantages more than balance this out!
Niseko, for a large amount of foreigners, has come to refer to a larger area encompassing all the ski resorts on Mount Yotei and servicing villages.
The quality (and sheer volume) of snow, the location of the villages relative to the ski area and the variety of accommodation on offer make Niseko hugely appealing to travellers across the board. Learners, families, groups of singles, and those experienced seeking out the legal back country access areas are all more than accommodated in this little piece of ski heaven.
So what might ski holiday specials in Niseko include?
Depending on which packages are available at the time you’re searching, and looking to travel, your ski holiday specials in Niseko might include flights including stopovers. (Two tips here: if you’re thinking of travelling in February Sapporo has a snow festival running for a week with fantastic snow carving sculptures lots of cool things going on to stop off and check out. If you’re later in the season as winter turns to spring you might wish to fly via Osaka to check out the cherry blossoms in full, glorious fragrant bloom, something that Japan is very famous for, and with good reason).
Your ski holiday specials in Niseko might also include transfers from New Chitose airport to your accommodation, making it a smooth transition for you from plane to bed (or slopes, depending on your timing!)
Accommodation options are plentiful and vary from more basic to traditional Japanese experience and luxurious.
Ski rentals are good to factor in if you either don’t have your own gear or you’re leaving it behind at home.
It will definitely be worth doing your research to get the deal that’s right for you. Remember it’s not a saving if you don’t need it, and on the flip side some inclusions may not only save you a fortune but a major headache too!
