Some of Niseko's famous powder. All taken in bounds, right next to the pistes. Easy.
A little edit from the Niseko Blog team. This is just to show the quality of powder that can be had straight of the lift, no hiking, no snow shoeing, no split boards. Just jump of the lifts in Hirafu and you can ride to all these spots easily.
If you are a beginner or intermediate thinking about a trip to Niseko take a look, as this is what you can expect.
