Japan Ski Resorts

Japan ski resorts offer some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world, with chest-deep powder, pristinely groomed runs, easy backcountry access, and a variety of terrain to suit every level. When you consider that Japan also offers visitors the opportunity to experience mouth-watering local cuisine, therapeutic onsens (hot springs), and some of the most incredible and varied accommodation options out there, it is no wonder that it has become a world-class ski and snowboard destination, and Japanese ski resorts are growing in popularity every year.

Anyone browsing Japan snow reports will find out pretty quickly what sets it apart from other ski and snowboarding destinations, namely the quality and quantity of the snow. Japan ski resorts such as Niseko sees 15 – 20 metres of snowfall annually securing its place as one of the snowiest ski resorts in the world. The quantity, but especially the consistency of the snowfall is what sets Japan apart, due to the fact that most of the ski resorts in Japan are located by the Japan Sea, which, thanks to wind blown in from Siberia which collects moisture from the sea as it travels along, slams against the Japan Alps and then dumps down on the resorts. Learn more on our Niseko weather and Hakuba weather information pages, where you can check out live snow cams and weather forecasts.

Hokkaido ski resorts like Niseko United deliver spectacular powder snow, a longer ski season, and epic views of the legendary Mt. Yotei. You will also find the lively resort town of Hirafu, which offers a wide variety of attractions, including world-class cuisine and first class Niseko accommodation options and Sapporo city, home of the 1972 Winter Olympic Games. The more central Nagano ski resorts like Hakuba bring the option of steeper terrain, easy access from Tokyo, and a more traditional Japanese experience. If soaking in natural mineral hot springs, visiting Japan’s snow monkeys, and delighting in a wide variety of Hakuba accommodation, from spacious, modern apartments to the comforts of a Japanese-style pension appeals, then Hakuba could be the resort for you.
