Recent research by Visa suggests Australians spend an average of $4,265 on their overseas trip and they intend to increase their travel budget by 9% for their next overseas trip.

That’s probably why specialist tour operator is seeing a 20% increase in customer numbers from this time last year.

Snow enthusiasts are choosing Japan’s ski resorts in growing numbers because they are not only very good value for money they also offer very reliable snow. A week-long stay in Niseko or Hakuba wouldn’t cost any where near the average amount spent by overseas holidaymakers even when airfares are included outside of its peak season.

Marcus Williams general manager of said:”At the popular Japanese resorts it is about $64 a day for a lift ticket which allows skiers and boarders to use the ski lifts between 8:30am until 8:30pm.

“Airfares to Japan with Qantas start from $1,499 per adult and $1,199 per child including taxes in low season. Kids under 6 years ski free all season and kids 6-12 years get free Niseko lift passes and snow equipment rental in March.”

“Our Niseko low season family packages in March, for two adults and two children (6-12 years), start from $670 per person, staying in self contained accommodation for seven nights. Also included is six day all mountain ski lift pass, a meet & greet at Chitose Airport, return airport transfers and the services of our local tour office.
