Countdown to winter

The 30cm snowfall that blanketed the village earlier this week is a sharp reminder the 09/10 ski season is only 3 weeks away.  Many people have taken advantage of our early bird discounts this season and the key dates around Christmas and New Years are starting to fill up.  If you are planning to ski Japan this winter and haven't organized your Niseko Hirafu accommodation yet I would recommend doing so soon. In winter many guests staying in our Hirafu apartments often ask what Niseko looks like without the snow. And the answer goes like this...
