The Japanese snow business has shown how resilient it is . One good example is the statistics produced by leading ski and boarding operation SkiJapan.com which indicates the numbers of Australian snow enthusiasts travelling to Niseko for the upcoming 2013 season has exceeded those of 2010 which was the busiest winter on record.
Marcus Williams , General Manager of SkiJapan.com said: “The exchange rate has remained fairly consistent over the last three years and the cost of ski lift tickets, most accommodations and ground transportation remaining comparable to previous winters.
“A series of early bird specials were rolled out this year which have stimulated the market and we are seeing the benefits. Great deals are still available too, until the end of September we are offering 10% off numerous accommodations in Niseko and we are giving away free nights in March.”
Niseko is regarded as one of Japan’s top five resorts with a lift system comprising mostly gondolas and covered chairlifts, so that even on the most extreme blizzard days, you can ride in comfort.
The resort also has an abundance of tree runs, and being low in altitude rarely experiences true whiteout conditions that are often found in North American or European resorts of higher altitude.
The team of skiers and boarders at SkiJapan.com feel they offer their clients some of the best and most consistent snow they could find in the world. Plus it offers a first-class ski school (with many Australian instructors) off-piste guiding and a choice of snow skis or snowboards ideally suited for the consistent dry powder snow.
