Not hating just stating facts
There are lots of resorts in Japan that have awesome snow, better terrain and almost nobody there, in Niseko you are competing with thousands of people for every line.
True - and despite all of the above it is still worth it
I wouldn't be spending $10+k for 3 weeks there if it wasn't...

Just had a look online and flights from Dallas to Sapporo in Feb are $1300.

Mizu Kuma Feb is a great time to go to Japan!!!!!

Some people reckon Chinese New Year is good to avoid, but I have never noticed the difference in crowds?????

Weekends and public holidays on Honshu however, are a different thing!!!!! The groomers are like Shibuya Crossing at peak hour!!!!!

As for what resort!!!!! Start by havin a look here!!!!! Japan Snow | Where to Ski in Japan | Snowboarding

Transport, etiquette, etc, here!!!!! japan-guide.com - Japan Travel and Living Guide

If thinkin Niseko, be careful in regards to where you're based, as the names of areas and their location can be a little misleading!!!!!

And two week minimum is a great idea, as even Japan can and does experience those warm front wonders in winter!!!!!
