Nisseko, a two-hour drive southwest of Sapporo, is a world-class ski resort famed for its tons of light powder snow. Along the eastern slopes of the mountain Niseko Annupuri (1308m) are four interconnected resorts, largely funded by Australian investors. An annual average snowfall of 15m attracts a large number of international skiers seeking off-piste skiing in powder up to their waist.
There are increasing efforts to turn Niseko into a year-round resort. A variety of outdoor activities such as horse riding, ballooning hiking, rafting, canoeing and fishing are getting popular from spring to autumn. You can also enjoy craft courses for glass and leatherwork items, as well as workshops to create cheese and ice cream.
