Why “potato”? Well when you get to Niseko you’ll realise potatoes are a big deal around these parts – it’s a famous potato farming region so you’ll see them everywhere… the town’s mascot is even a skiing potato!
The communal living area is a great place to spend your downtime. It looks out into snow-covered forest with plenty of comfortable lounges, or a sunken Japanese style dining table. The lounge has a TV and there is wireless internet so you can look up the snow forecast or post your pics to social media.
A lodge manager is onsite throughout your stay to help you with any requirements, there is a daily shuttle up the mountain to the lifts and they can provide meals on request as well as breakfast which is included in the price.
Potato Lodge has 5 twin rooms, 2 quad rooms and a dorm room sleeping six – either book the whole room for your group or book a single bed and share with others.
The bathrooms are shared but there is one for males and one for females and each has a traditional Japanese style bath. There is also laundry facilities including a dryer.
