Niseko Village lies in the heart of the Niseko United ski area, nestled between Annupuri and Grand Hirafu. It offers a huge variety of skiing options including some of the steepest courses on the mountain.
Niseko Village gets a significant amount of sunlight and, with a spectacular view of Mt. Yotei in the foreground, is a photographers dream. Extensive groomed slopes suitable for all abilities dominate the Niseko Village trail map.
While these areas can be comfortably skied by low intermediate level skiers they also offer more advanced riders an exciting descent. The base of Niseko Village offers fantastic beginner skiing due to its gentle terrain and beginner friendly lifts. The Niseko Village area is well served by a range of lifts including the Niseko Gondola which whisks people up to the Annupuri Peak.
The Wonderland Chair takes you to the top of immaculately groomed runs or to the start of some of the best powder skiing in the area as found on the Superstition course or the Natural Half-Pipes under the old Niseko Village gondola. The top of Niseko Village grants guests access to either Grand Hirafu or Annupuri giving easy access to even more terrific terrain.
