Visitor Reviews of Niseko Village

Stu from South Korea writes:

This mountain rocks, everyday is a powder day and it didn't seem like it was snowing that hard when I was there (12-16th Jan) but the flakes just keep floating down all through the night.
Higashiyama is only good at the top slopes by the Ace Pair lift or if you ski down from the Prince gondola and take a short hike up to Panorama gate and then continue through the trees. But head over to An'nupuri an there is just great powder everywhere and nice easy tree runs with nothing too steep. Good if you are skiing/boarding pow for the first time!
Spent an entire day on this side and was planning on exploring the Hirafu side but the wind picked up and the lifts got shut down...this seems to be a not uncommon occurrence!
Downside to Higashiyama is night life is non-existent. You need to take a 20 min bus over to the main village in Hirafu and even this is pretty quiet when compared to something like Whistler or Val d'Isere
