Our group didn't manage to find tickets and hotels to make it last season, but I heard the snow was meh compared to the season before.

I asked the travel agent about next season, she specifically told me that a large number of goers tend to buy their tickets/tour packages a few months in advance, with late November bookings being ridiculously overpriced. Your best bet to get the best rate is to start booking during the later summer months (July-Oct) depending on how early they allow you to book.

I've personally went snowboarding at Niigata/Nagano area more often since it's closer to where I live (in Japan) and we can do day/weekend trips.

Hopefully, we plan to bring a few more friends up to Hokkaido with us this coming season. Would you recommend Niseko for beginners?
