Skiing the Japow Day 8: Never again Niesko

The best ticket deal we could find was the Yokubari pack (slightly discounted ticket with 800 yen toward another purchase). It’s mentioned on the Niseko English site. Is only sold at major Hokkaido convenience stores. We bought our at Lawson using the Loppi machine.

Here's the Loppi info to buy the Yokubari pack.

Niseko – A summary
Good terrain and access to backcountry/off-piste
Too many people
Everything got skied out quickly (including easy sidecountry).
Hirafu and Hanazano attract most powder hounds, so we found some of the best in-bounds snow at the end of the day skiing back to the Niseko Village base.
One day was plenty. We would avoid on future trips.
