Great Powder
The whole resort is well set up and easy to move through out the whole Niseko United Ski Area.

The way the gates are set up for the off piste runs is really good if the gates are open get out there (Still take care) and if they are closed then it is for good reason.

Night skiing is also really good with such a large ski area lit up.

This trip is the 3rd time I have been to Niseko and will likely go again in the future.
Date visited: From 08 February, 2015 To 14 February, 2015
Snow condition on visit: Snow went from wet on arrival to a great week of snow including an overnight 60cm dump with great powder runs
Things I liked: The Snow, The open tree runs, night skiing
Things I didn't like: we were a little unlucky with wind on a few days, big changes from 2007 and 2008 in terms of local shops as now it is a lot more commercial.
