Deceiss Niseko most likely to have best snowboarding conditions in Japan regardless of the time.

You should stay where ever suits and pay as little as possible. All depends on what you want.
Look at bookings.com / your local travel agency packages (normally states the hotels names) or look at backpackers (pensions).
See what fits with what you want.

the_nev I'll be going in the shoulder season in march, so what is the best for spring conditions?
I think Niseko will be the best from what ive heard?

Also, where's good to stay and how much should I look to pay?

dreampow If you want powder wait till January.
In recent years late December has been the real start of the season here (Powder). Until then its usually very limited.
I have been boarding at Nozawa onsen the last three years around Christmas and its always been amazing.

Hokkaido will get more pow earlier than Nagano.

pjstyles Although I've never been to Hokkaido, my friends from Hokkaido prefer Rusutsu over Niseko.

Are you planning on going to Nagano, Hokkaido, and Iwate within a week?

Deceiss Doesnt help me any. Need to get some of the white loving in Nagano.

Looking at disappointment at the Hakuba webcams, I heard Happo-One wanted to open this weekend but it still looks pretty brown and green. Needs to stay cool and get some snow, what little drops seems to be melting during the hot day or two each week.
check out the Niseko webcams... around 20cm over the last few days all the way down to the village level. a bit of rain expected this wknd before more snow next week. hope not too much gets washed away
