WHILE not the reason that most people visit Niseko, snowshoeing is certainly an activity that is worthy of people’s attention and time. Too often, the only time we get to enjoy the nature of our surroundings is as we are racing downhill through it. Snowshoeing allows us to slow it down, and to immerse ourselves within a silent and still winter wonderland. It’s an incredible feeling to crunch through the fresh snow and slowly wander through the frozen landscape. There are plenty of places around town where you can rent snowshoes.
