What better way to experience the famous powder and terrain of the Niseko area and further afield with all that Hokkaido has to offer, than with an expert local guide? 

Mt. Niseko Annupuri offers 360 degrees of vast, open fields of perfect powder, tree runs, bowls, chutes and natural half pipes that continue on for kilometers. The four Niseko resorts offer access to the south east laying 180 degrees of this terrain via the Niseko United lift system, the remaining 180 degrees is accessible via the 9 gates that allow skiers and snowboarders into the back country areas of Niseko.

The Niseko Rules are the area’s official regulations created for the safety and freedom of every skier and snowboarder riding inside or outside the ski resort boundaries.

Please be aware that whilst the ski patrol assesses the avalanche danger each morning, and will open or close the gates accordingly, once outside the patrolled area you take responsibility for your own safety, we strongly recommend that you read the daily avalanche reports that are on display at gate entrances.

We offer a full range of tours from being your shown your way around the Niseko United ski fields to full day hikes into the backcountry wilderness and everything in between.

Each resort offers up loads of terrain that you wouldn’t even know about if you didn’t have a guide.
