Niseko Ski Resort

Notorious for its powder bowls and backcountry slopes, Niseko Ski Resort is regarded by many as the top ski destination in Japan. The area features four different ski resorts and averages 50 feet of snow each season. Waist-deep powder and incredible views of Mt. Yotei continue to draw skiers and snowboarders to Niseko every season.

Rusutsu Resort

Rusutsu Resort

For equally as impressive powder with fewer crowds, Rusutsu Resort is the ideal destination. Rusutsu boasts an annual 600 inches of snowfall with 37 runs across 3 peaks. Its close proximity to the Pacific coast serves up several sunny days throughout the winter season and its incredible tree skiing and lift infrastructure give this resort extra points, too.

Hakuba Happo-One Snow Resort

Hakuba Happo-One Snow Resort

Most famous for hosting a handful of events in the 1998 Winter Olympics, Hakuba Happo-One Snow Resort is one of Japan’s most celebrated ski spots. Nestled in the northern Alps, Happo-One features massive expanses of skiable terrain, both groomed and backcountry. Off the slopes, the resort offers traditional Japanese dining, shops, and plenty of après ski festivities.
