3rd March 2012 - We have received information which states that this area is now closed.

Niseko Weiss is a small resort close to Niseko (about 10 minutes driving) that no longer operates its ski lifts. Instead, Weiss now offers skiers and riders the opportunity to access their terrain on a snowcat. At 4000Yen for a day pass, this is likely one of the most affordable cat ski operations in the world. However, the terrain at Niseko Weiss is fairly mellow and given the heavy snowfalls the region receives, it is often difficult to get away from the cat track without getting bogged down. It is an interesting option allowing guests the experience of riding in a cat and well suited to families and intermediates looking to try something different over the course of their stay in Niseko.

While the virgin snow on the slopes are beautiful visible from far - the resort has been meanwhile fully abandoned and even the snowcat services has been terminated three years ago.
