About Us

What makes us different?

We are here

We are in Niseko year round and in the winter our office operates a customer service desk from 8am - 7pm. You can drop by our office during these times for any query big or small. Outside of these hours we are a phone call away.

Local advice and information

Having lived in Hokkaido for over 12 years we can offer excellent advice on the best places to ride, local tips, must dos and secret spots.

A passion for winter sports

We are serious about our winter sports. Snowboarding brought us to Japan and has kept us here. We can offer advice on the best ski runs Niseko and Hokkaido have to offer no matter what your ability is.

Personalized service

We want your holiday experience to be a memorable one. To achieve this goal our team of native English speakers and locals provide unparalleled customer service, flexibility and honesty.

We are competitive

Ski holidays don’t need to be expensive. We strive hard to offer the most competitive rates and deals on accommodation, lift passes and transfers.

Who are we?
