Whistler or Niseko?
 
I have a feeling all of you are going to say Niseko but I'm still asking.

My Ski club is going to both.
Whistler is 7 days slopeside 4 days riding with 5th day optional which Id be doing Heli. Every time I have booked heli it has been cancelled due to weather so Im dying to do it.
Niseko is 10 days with only 4 days riding. Not sure about the 5th day riding. 3 days in Shanghai with tour.

My dilemma is that I have about 8-10 friends going to whistler. Basically no one I know going to Niseko. Just one couple who I know through the club.

Any of you been to both and can give me thoughts on them?

Thanks

I'd say Niseko but that's because I wouldn't miss a chance to visit Japan, regardless of snowboarding.

Going on a Heli trip with your friends would suck ass.

My thoughts exactly.

Japan. You're in North America right? Can't you go to Whistler almost whenever you want?

How many people will be going to Japan in your ski club? If it's a decent sized group of you, I'd pick Japan.

You can always make friends inside the group, even if you only know a couple people at first.

Japan is one of those things that should be done in a group because it makes it infinitely more fun. Especially once you engage in apres.

Whistler is amazing, but the feel isn't that different from other big resorts in N. America. It's got amazing terrain and something for everyone, but it's more of what you may have already seen.

Japan is a totally different experience, both snow and culturally. It's not something you get in a lot of other places. You can always go to Whistler another time since it's insanely popular with basically everyone in N. America.

I know Ill make friends in the group. Last year we went to France and the group was 80 people.
I have been to whistler 4 times and love it and really want to Heli but you guys are all right its in North America and I can do it any time.

If you got to japan and only ride 4 days you will want to kill yourself when you get home. Ditch the 2 plankers, go to japan on your own, ride every day, have a life changing experience, become a slave to japanese powder for the rest of your life, die happy.
