EMPIRE OF THE SNOW

Located on the island of Hokkaido, Niseko is well known as the 'Powder Kingdom' due to its winter-long chest-deep snow slopes.

Sushi, ramen, natural hot springs, and powder snow await any intrepid ski and snowboard lover searching for adventure.

JAPOW

Endless powder.

Arriving in a ski town in the middle of the night with snow on both sides of the road as high as three-story houses can be intimidating. Despite the freezing temperatures and being far from home, you will quickly fall under the spell of this winter wonderland.

As soon as you step into Niseko village, the late-night food trucks will arouse your appetite. Whether it’s oven street pizza, oyster rolls, or donuts that you crave, you can refuel before hitting the slopes for the best snow on the planet. 

The local Japanese people call this snow Oyuki, meaning 'Big Snow.' Visitors call it JAPOW. So crack open a chilled Sapporo beer and take in the peaks on and off-piste.

FRIENDS AND POWDER

It is a fact: friends that ski together stay together.

Company matters. You’ll never have a bad snow day when good friends surround you. 

That’s why we have capped this trip to 20 people max, so the chemistry between our crew stays tight. It’s the sweet spot that means you can get the balance between social and solo time just right. 

With us, you can look forward to more laughs, better apres, and real chill time at the resort with like-minded people who are all chasing the same thing as you; legendary skiing and snowboarding on unrivaled snow. 

Though sunny days are rare, Niseko receives an average of 14 meters of snow per season. Most of it falls during January and February, making every day a snow day.
