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.
Are you serious??? This was another epic
year in Niseko. Started slightly late, but after that it was the most consistent season in memory. I was there for my usual 2-3 months and aside from a little dry spell at the end of January it was incredibly steady - there were no 2 consecutive days without fresh powpow.
It was still snowing and there was still top-to-bottom coverage well into May:

Hell, I know guys who were still riding last week!
Hopefully, we plan to bring a few more friends up to Hokkaido with us this coming season. Would you recommend Niseko for beginners?
Niseko without a doubt is one of the most beginner friendly places in the world.
