Default Niseko, Japan

I am thinking about going to Niseko next winter for 2 months. I would be traveling there by myself so besides the fact that it sounds like a rad place to ride, is it a mountain where someone traveling alone can meet other young folk doing the same thing? Is there much of a nightlife or at least people to chill with when not riding?

There are plenty of little bars and restaurants to go to but they are small and quite laid back, as far as nightlife goes there are probably better places to go if you want to meet new people. If you take a group of friends Niseko is great but imo there will be better options for meeting people and partying. The only women I met when I was there were young girls on family holidays.

It would probably mostly depend on where you stay in town, go for a dorm/lodge style if you want to get to know other people, don't rely on the towns nightlife to provide that.

The snow goes off tho, and it's a huge mountain.

thanks for that!! I don't need a BIG party scene but just a little something to keep me occupied. After looking around I think that I am going to just stay there. It seems quaint, cute and great! I am going to stay at Hirfau Backapackers so hopefully will meet people through there! I will be there for 2 months, just riding, not working and I am a chick so it is dudes I am after and not little girls on holiday!

Yea I absolutely loved it there, and if you're a girl there are plenty of eligible bachelors around town just like me.

I plan to go back next year depending on which friends I manage to bring along.

hi all. Ive been browsing these forums for a while, but never posted before, so here goes!

Im also thinking of a trip to Niseko around Feb next year. Anyone had any experience with good places to stay there? Will be heading over with two other friends, and we will all be trying to keep it relatively cheap.

I'm thinking of going in late march till early april. But apparently there's no more powder and it's mainly wet snow. Is it still worth going? How bad a wet snow can be for a beginner?

Niseko looks pretty rocking to me. Have you guys seen the Sweetgrass trailer for Signatures? It was filmed in the backcountry around Niseko and it has tons of those "Oh my god" powder shots. I'd say if you can get out there, go.
