It's been an incredible start to the Winter 2017/18 ski season in Niseko with the accumulative snowfall already hitting over three metres. So much snow means Niseko is open for play!

Niseko's November snowfall was the highest it's been in the past six seasons reaching a total of 188cm! That's over 70% more snow than the same time last year.
