Niseko Well Represented in World Ski Award Nominations

The annual World Ski Award nominations have been released, and unsurprisingly, many Niseko hotels, chalets and other service providers have been shortlisted for awards.

The World Ski Awards recognises excellence in ski tourism and recognises, rewards and celebrates those businesses leading the way. Among this years nominees, two Niseko businesses are in the running for 'Best in the World' prizes, and 13 others are nominated for 'Best in Japan' prizes.
