Unlike much of the newly built accommodation in Niseko which has been developed by foreigners and influenced by North American and European ski accommodation, Big Valley has an authentic Japanese architectural feel – these houses wouldn’t be out of place in Tokyo or Sapporo. Fashioned along modern Japanese lines, the three-storey townhouses combine high-end luxury with Japanese accents.

Big Valley condos prioritise chic comfort with abundant lounge seating, generously scattered with cushions in dedicated living and media areas, a gas fireplace in stone surrounds and walls brought to life with art works. Traditional Japanese shoji -style paper screen doors and genkan entrance lobby remind visitors of their cultural location.

The stylish ground floor kitchen will suit enthusiastic cooks with its modern appliances and sleek appearance. An island bench, which could double as work and eating space, separates cooking from dining and living spaces. As the name suggests Big Valley guests are treated to expansive views of Niseko’s world famous abundance of powder across the tree-covered valley on which it perches. Wide-frame windows and doors ensure unhindered views of the snowscape from living and sleeping areas.

Location

SETTING / ATMOSPHERE

Located on the edge of Lower Hirafu Village, Big Valley has the best of both worlds – peaceful lifestyle and uninterrupted snow views, but easy proximity to the many delights of Niseko.

LIFTS / TRANSPORT

The condominiums are about a 10-minute mild uphill walk to the lifts, but with a shuttle stop only 10m away hitting the slopes without delay isn’t an issue. With a dedicated garage those who decide to hire a car can do so. Driving in the snow isn’t as hard as you’d think!

RESTAURANTS / BARS

Big Valley is well served for those all-important pursuits of eating, drinking and hot spring bathing. The popular Yukoro Onsen hot spring bath is close by, as are restaurants Rin and Ebisu-tei, and Gyu+ (Fridge Door) Bar. The Seicomart convenience store is a five to eight-minute walk.
