Get out of the Aussie heat and into the super dry powder at Niseko

G'Day Japan! / Tours & Activities / Get out of the Aussie heat and into the super dry powder at Niseko

If you haven’t tried the super fine powder at Niseko yet, now’s the time! Summer’s barely started, and we’ve already had a few scorchers here down under. Australia is looking set to have a stinking hot summer (again), but just a little way over the water in Japan – where the skiing is AMAZING – it’s ski season, which means now is the perfect time to flee the country and hit the slopes in Japan.


As if that weren’t convenient enough, Go Snow Gondola Snowsports at Niseko, Hokkaido, is throwing in a little extra sweetening for the 2015/2016 ski season, making this season the perfect time for first-timers – not just ski veterans – to hop on over to Niseko and get their ski on!

Priority Lift Lines

With Go Snow Gondola Snowsports you’ll get priority access to the Hirafu Gondola and Ace Quad (Centre 4) lifts – the two main ways to get to the top of the mountain at Grand Hirafu Resort – which means less time waiting and more time skiing. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve been skiing for a while, everyone wants to maximise their time spent on the slopes.


Niseko is famous for its powder, so why stick to the beaten tracks with snow that’s been skied into submission by the hundreds of people who were there before you? Go Snow Gondola Snowsports runs workshops for beginners and those with more experience to give you the skills to go off-piste and maximise your enjoyment of the gorgeous fine powder which makes up a core element of the Niseko experience.

They also have full day Women’s Workshops – ladies-only group sessions available in novice to advanced levels, which include a stylish lunch at An Dining, the highly acclaimed restaurant at Ki Niseko Hotel.

New! Adult First Timer Pack

If your trip to Niseko is your first time on the slopes, the first timer pack is perfect for you. Fully inclusive with rental gear (ski/snowboard equipment, outerwear, helmet, gloves & goggles), lift tickets, and group lessons, crossing skiing in Japan off your bucket list just got even easier!

More Instructors during Peak Periods

The ski season runs roughly from December to April, but to make sure everyone gets the most out of their Niseko experience, Go Snow Gondola Snowsports will have 50% more instructors available during peak periods. This way, even group lessons maintain a small group size, and everyone gets the attention they need from the instructor.


Bookings can be made through the Go Snow Gondola Snowsports website, or by contacting and mentioning your preferred dates and classes.
