Niseko Village review by Brett Dennis
See my feedback for Niseko Hirafu.

As part of overall Niseko United Area, Higishiyama was excellent with long, consistent gradient runs and wicked natural half pipes bowling through the trees.

Was generally quieter than Hirafu on the slopes. Onsen at Prince Hotel was a bit of a rip-off, if I pay 1000yen, I'd much rather see naked women than unabashed Japanese men towel flicking each other on the bare rump!

For the riding, I loved working on my speed turns and hacking off the numerous banks along the runs in this area.
Date visited: From 28 January, 2008 To 04 February, 2008
Snow condition on visit: Endless powder, two days of bluebird.
Things I liked: Lots.
Things I didn't like: Not many
