Niseko United Resorts set to open today!

Today (December 5th) the Niseko United Resort opened up again for another snow filled winter! The chairlifts are now open and ready for all local skiers and boarders who are ready to ride.

LOCAL STOKE

Niseko: A reduced numbers of humans in town this winter shouldn’t be confused with low stoke levels, as the locals seem keener than ever to get out and smash pow. This weeks big snowfall proved this point as many couldn’t wait for the chairlifts to start turning and opted to ski tour Grand Hirafu. We can confirm that they found what they were looking for, check out some of the action here.

When you go full send into the weekend!

Furano: The resort opened with a bang, with 100+cm of snow accumulating by Monday morning. Rhythm shop staff (and husband and wife) Aki and Kei were in the right place at the right time and were happy to score their first pow day of the season.

RESORT OPERATIONS

This weeks storm has delivered the snow needed for most Hokkaido resorts to open, and the majority are either open or in the final stages of opening. For more information on resort operations click the links below.

Now open: FURANO RESORT, SAPPORO TEINE, SAPORRO KOKUSAI, RUSUTSU, NISEKO VILLAGE, GRAND HIRAFU, HANAZONO NISEKO, NISEKO MOIWA
