Long stay Accomodation for ski season?

Hi guys,

Just starting what seems to be a impossible task of finding accommodation to stay in out in, probably Niseko region, for the ski season (dec-may) but open to ideas.

Any information will be great!

It's not impossible. Niseko is a large ski resort. If you google search, you can find quite a lot on offer. Actually, it should be easy if you have appropriate amount of money. However, how "long" is "long"? What is your budget? What are your priority conditions?

Hi mate,

Thanks for quick reply, yeah, after further research it looks like Hirafu, Niseko is the way forward. I like the look of that, good snow/nightlife/town etc

Just trying to work out whether working for someone where accommodation is included or sorting out seperate accommodation is the better route. Ideally, finding accommodation as i am a freelance graphic designer and the dream would be work from the dorm/lodge to make some money and my partner would work at a bar or somewhere.

We would be looking to travel out end of nov/dec then stay until the snows goes or we get bored! :) So March/April/May time.

Any recommended dorms/sites to check out would be amazing!!!

Yup - not so hard...start now...

"Niseko" is actually several villages around the base of the mountain and anearby small town.

The villages are Niseko/Annapuri/Hirafu - Hirafu is the main access village with all the services and entertainment. Nearby town is Kutchan.

Here are some links
