April is the best time to ski and dine Niseko on a budget

By 4th April 2017Promoted Content

If you’re on a budget but want to experience skiing and dining in Niseko, there is no better time to visit than April with beds starting at around $40.

April is spring in northern Japan, which means it’s not too cold, there’s lots of sunshine and there is still plenty of snow.

The above photo was taken today – April 3 – and as you can see there is still more than enough snow from top to bottom!

But the best part is, because it’s “late season” there’s hardly anyone here! The slopes are almost empty, restaurants are never booked out and accommodation is at its most affordable.


MY ecolodge is a boutique travellers lodge in Hirafu designed for savvy, budget conscious skiers and holidaymakers.

Quad-share rooms are available from ¥4752 (approx US$43) per person, and double or twin rooms from ¥5940 (approx US$53).


Book this April and get free breakfast, free transfer from Hirafu Welcome Centre & Kutchan Station, and free shuttle to the ski slopes.


The lodge has free high-speed Wi-Fi, a common lounge area, a small shop for snacks and drinks, and onsite dining and catering by Green Bentoss Cafe and Dining serving takeaway “bento box” meals and other dining options.
