Niseko Winter Vs. Niseko Summer

There can be no doubt that Niseko gets more snow than most places on the planet. But while 15 – 20 metres of snowfall is a huge amount over the course of a season, it can be difficult to visualise. These images from our friends at 360niseko go a long way towards helping you get the full picture!

For further evidence of the amazing snowfall we receive in Niseko each season and to play with the original slider image, take a look at the 360niseko Before and After the Snow blog post. Highly recommended.

Japan Ski Experience guests Elliott and Joanne returned to Niseko earlier this month for a second consecutive year of deep powder skiing and cultural adventures.
Once back home in the UK they kindly sent us some of the fantastic footage they shot while skiing in Rusutsu and visiting Sapporo for the Snow Festival. This is the JSE edit.
