Japan’s champagne powder is famous, and in Niseko, a regular 50ft of the stuff settles in great heaps every season. Wind your way through snow-covered trees and glide off-piste through the lightest powder blanket, or watch it fly up behind you on the town’s well-groomed runs.

Your expert guides will escort you on a journey through this pristine alpine adventure playground.  To memorialize the powder-perfect occasion, a professional photographer will be on hand to document your adventure for disbelieving friends back home.

Journey deeper into the backcountry on a cat ski. Experience the Japanese powder in all of its untracked glory amid the absolute quiet of the snow-covered wilderness. Take it up a notch with a dose of thrilling night skiing, or instead relax on a magical reindeer-drawn sleigh ride through the sparkling forest, laden with fur blankets and a warm drink.


At the end of your day’s powder hunting, bathe in a traditional Onsen on the snowy mountainside, the steam rising into the crisp air. Surrounded by snow-dusted trees let the hot volcanic spring water, rich in minerals, revive your aching muscles. Soak up the serenity of the setting as snowflakes drift through the crisp, pine-scented air. Discover why these hot spring baths are the cornerstone of Japanese culture as you linger in some of the best Japan has to offer.

Niseko is more than just a powder destination. This charming village is a trove of Japanese culture and incredible places to eat. With everything from sushi kitchens serving up handmade noodles to Michelin-starred international cuisine, Niseko has your appetites covered. Finish your indulgent evening exploring the nightlife scene, or with your feet up before a crackling fire, sipping award-winning Japanese whisky. Relax in this enchanting setting, recuperating ahead of the next morning’s champagne adventure.
