Ski Resorts In Japan
With high quality ski in/out accommodation in Japan, excellent food and an interesting and lively nightlife to add to one of the best skiing experiences in the world; Japan is a superb alternative to your 'normal' ski destination. Skitracer features holidays to Japan’s main three ski resorts, Hakuba, Niseko and Rusutsu which all have a unique experience to offer.
Skiing In Hakuba
Hakuba is quite simply the skiing mecca of Japan. With 10 resorts and 200 runs (of which several have been used in the 1998 Winter Olympics) it is hard not to be impressed. Skiing Hakuba is not for the faint hearted with some of the most challenging terrain in the world. The local town offers an excellent mix of both Western and Japanese restaurants and bars to cater for everyone.
Skiing In Niseko
The Niseko mountain has four ski areas and three villages; Annupuri, Higashiyama and Grand Hirafu, connected at base level by a free shuttle bus. The Niseko and Rusutsu resorts benefit from consistent temperatures allowing them to retain excellent snow conditions and offer plenty of powder skiing. Apres-ski in Niseko is a fantastic and lively experience, with a huge variety of bars and restaurants.
Skiing In Rusutsu
Rusutsu is an exotic skiing destination off the beaten track with legendary snowfall. Massive quantities fall regularly in all three Hokkaido resorts, though Rusutsu lies further inland where temperatures are usually a little colder and the snow quality is often finer. Niseko and Rusutsu resorts both benefits from consistent temperatures, allowing them to retain excellent snow conditions and offer plenty of powder skiing for all abilities.
