What's it like at Niseko Village resort?
Formerly known as Higashiyama, Niseko Village ski area offers the steepest inbounds terrain in the Niseko United area. However, it maintains a strict off-piste skiing policy limiting the amount of skiable terrain available. The terrain directly underneath of the Niseko Village gondola (Misuno no sawa) and the bowl to skiers right of the inbounds area (Yu no sawa) are both strictly off limits due to avalanche hazards. The resort is working to find a safe way to control and open these areas meaning that if/when this happens, the inbounds terrain here will be tough beat. Currently though, Niseko Village offers some great fall-line skiing with Superstition ranking as one of the better inbounds destinations in the Niseko United area. You will also find some nice open glades and fun gullies on the lower mountain. An added bonus here is that you will rarely see crowds on this part of the mountain so morning uploading is usually quick and fresh lines stick around much longer. Niseko Village is connected to the other resorts of the Niseko United area (Annupuri, Hirafu and Hanazono) at the top of the mountain and by a shuttle bus system (transport is free with an All Mountain lift ticket). Tickets can be purchased for either the entire United area or just Niseko Village.

Visitor Reviews of Niseko Village
Glenn F from United States writes:
Feb 2023, 8 day visit. Expect weather and visibility issues. Stayed on the runs because of my visibility vertigo. I was told not to expect bluebird days in Niseko. Got fresh snow everyday, not huge amounts, but a few inches. I experienced mixed snow conditions, from powder to ice. The lifts really need to be updated. Slow or closed lifts appear to be commonplace because of wind. With limited lower lifts open, it's not worth the effort on these days, everyone trying to get to an adjacent resort (Hanazono's newer gondola), huge bus queue, little to no info from the resorts on lift status. The Hilton is great, but isolated. I used the shuttles and buses frequently.
