DEEEEP powder snow, lush green forests, mild summer days, and spectacular autumn colours – a year in the life of Niseko. Until recently, only locals really ever knew there was much more to Niseko than just winter. But that’s rapidly starting to change. It’s been discovered that Niseko is an amazing place to visit year-round and a thriving international summer tourism market is beginning to develop.
Spring brings melting snow which floods rivers offering world-class rafting, and golf, road cycling, mountain biking and horse riding take over from skiing and snowboarding. Mid-summer is like a pleasant spring or autumn day anywhere else in the world – it’s like enjoying the best Asia has to offer with the air-conditioning set to medium. Autumn is perhaps the most unique and spectacular season in Niseko, when the mountains become a patchwork of yellow, brown and red autumn colours.
To help spread the word, Powderlife, in association with Niseko Photography and J-Build, has created a calendar that showcases the beauty of every one of Niseko’s four dramatic seasons (pictured right). Now visitors can take home memories of their Niseko ski holiday and experience a year in Niseko from wherever they are in the world.
***Includes national holidays for Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.***
