Prohibition on the use of drones in the Niseko ski resort

Ski Resorts News

THE USE OF DRONES OR UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES (UAV) WITHIN THE NISEKO UNITED SKI RESORT BOUNDARY, SURROUNDING NATIONAL PARKS/LAND IS PROHIBITED.

In recent years, radio-controlled aircrafts such as drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) have rapidly gained popularity in Niseko. However, due to the aircraft’s weight and revolving wings, a collision with such vehicle may cause serious damages to people on the slopes or the resort's facilities.

In order to avoid accidental collisions - which can be triggered by sudden strong winds, radio signal malfunction, device breakdown, operation errors, and so on -, all the use of drones or UAV in the Niseko ski resort as well as surrounding national parks and land is strictly prohibited.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
