From the Yotei Valley in Hokkaido, through the untapped snow paradises of Tohoku, and to the magestic Japanese Alps of Nagano and Niigata, we work with the myriad of ski resorts that dot Japan’s mountainous topography. Here are a few that we highlight.


Hokkaido Resorts


Situated on Mt. Niseko-Annupuri, Niseko is the heart of skiing and snowboarding in Hokkaido. In the last 20 years Niseko, thanks to the ‘champagne powder’, world class accommodations and infrastructure, range of superb restaurants and English speaking staff, it has become the go-to resort for skiers and snowboarders from Asia and from around the globe.

Nestled in a valley close to Sapporo and Otaru, Kiroro boasts the best powder of the Yotei Valley triumvirate. The self-contained resort is ideal for families and powder hounds both.


Closest to Shin-Chitose Airport and absent the bustle of Niseko, Rusutsu's 500 inches of powder annually serve as a respite for those seeking quiet solace in its excellent glades.

Rising above the Sea of Japan, Iwanai offers both stellar views and intense terrain in a private setting with cut trails and spectacular bowls.

Daisetsuzan Asahidake Ropeway is located in the middle of Hokkaido Island about 3 hours from Sapporo by car or by train. Asahidake is the tallest mountain in Hokkaido which keeps the snow fresh and cold. For powderhounds, this resort is particularly loved because of its variety of terrain and relative unknown status.
