The Niseko United ski resort is composed of four different ski areas, each with their own base. Skye Niseko is located next door to the Grand Hirafu area, on one of the upper corners of the Hirafu Village, which is by far the most bustling and vibrant center in the area during the winter season.
This position not only places Skye Niseko in an ideal location for enjoying the ski area, but also means that the heart of the village is just a short walk or shuttle away.
Skye Niseko is about a 15-minute drive away from central Kutchan.

A world-class ski destination, Niseko receives 14m of snow per season on average. Offering 38 lifts, 4 developed, inter-linked resorts, 47km of groomed slopes, 1000m of vertical, and the longest run stretching 5600m, Niseko is the largest of Hokkaido’s ski areas, and overall the most well-rounded winter resort on the island.
There is a good mix of groomed runs for all levels, from first-timers through expert powder hounds. There is also a terrain park with half-pipes, table tops, round quarters and rails etc… a variety of terrain to suit boarders of different abilities.
That being said, novices going down the slope for the first time may want to avoid the crowds in peak powder season and consider some of the quieter times (spring).
