Night Skiing 2017/18 Opening Dates

Ski under the lights in Niseko this winter with the 2017/18 season dates announced by Niseko United.

There's something truly magical about hitting the slopes after dark with the mountain all lit up.

Experience the world of night skiing when you take to the slopes during the night skiing season. Night skiing will commence on December 9th, 2017 (Saturday) and will run until March 18th, 2018 (Sunday).

Night skiing not only allows you even more time to get out and on the slopes for some extra runs, but you'll also get to enjoy some additional benefits too. The visibility can surprisingly be better at night than during the day as the floodlights cut through any fog and cast shadows on the bumps that you mightn't see in daylight. Plus, you can use your day time to do other activities in Niseko like snowmobiling, snowshoeing or backcountry tours.

With Niseko regarded as one of the best resorts to night ski in Japan, you'll get to enjoy a wonderfully memorable and magical experience like no other!
