If you are visiting Niseko for more than a couple of days, it is worthwhile taking a day or half-day to visit one of our neighbour resorts. Although Niseko has almost no lift cues (except around Chinese New Year), other resorts such as Rusutsu and Moiwa are even quieter. But just as great! The snow quality is pretty much the same, and by that I mean awesome. However it tends to get ridden less.
The resorts themselves are pretty basic and down to earth, with no real sense of luxury, which can be found in Niseko. So put away the pretence, strap on a smile and enjoy some of the worlds best powder, all to your self!
