Late ski offers in Niseko could mean two things:
The first meaning of late ski offers in Niseko might relate to you being disorganised. Shame on you! Well, maybe not if you can nab a good deal on your flights, rentals, transfers and accommodation. More and more late or last minute deals are the ones culminating in the biggest bargains. Why? Because a service provider is better off getting some money rather than none at all.
The disadvantages (and certainly a strong case for not relying on this method to keep the holiday costs down) are that you may end up with flights but no accommodation, or accommodation but only ridiculously expensive flight options, or you may end up not being able to accommodate your whole party in the one place.
The second meaning of late ski offers in Niseko could also relate to the time of year – ie late in the season offers. Niseko snows pretty well between late November and early May. When you consider that this northern part of Japan experiences weather coming in from Siberia perhaps this is no great surprise. In any case it’s a lengthy ski season with plenty of time to enjoy its offerings. Late ski season might suit you as a time to go in case you can experience slightly warmer weather than what you might experience in Niseko in the depths of winter (and it does get bitterly, bitterly cold. If you can’t picture Japan getting cold, go back to picturing freezing Siberia and shift the location in your mind…)
Another plus of late ski offers in Niseko is you could arrange to have your flight go via Osaka if your timing is right and experience the fragrant, colourful bliss of the cherry blossom’s blooming. Among other things, the cherry blossom in flower is something Japan is celebrated and known for so if you’re there around April this is definitely something worth seeking out. Do a little bit of research to find out where the best location will be for you to see this marvel depending on your movements during your time in Japan.
No matter your meaning behind late ski offers in Niseko you’re bound to have a ball in this stunning part of the world. If the thought of skiing doesn’t appeal to you, you can always spend time exploring an onsen and enjoying the delicious cuisines that can be found in the villages dotted around Mount Yotei.
