My family and I (2adults and 2 children aged 12 and 9), are looking at going to Niseko early next year (probably early Jan) for a ski trip. We may have another 2 families in toe as well so this is a bit of a fact finding mission. Is this a good time to go?
We are looking at 2 weeks in Niseko. First question, is this too long to ski in the 1 resort? We do love skiing however.
Second, we have timeshare in Upper Hirafu that we will try to get. Is this the best place to stay on the mountain, both with proximity to the lifts and nightlife?
Is it cheap or expensive to eat out, drink, lift tickets, ski lessons and accomodation?
We have skied Canada and Lake Tahoe before but this is our first attempt at Japan.
We all have our own all mountain skis and boots, but would powder skis be a better option.
What is the best way of getting to Niseko from Sapporo and any recomendations on flying from Oz to Sapporo.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much in advance.
