According to the article, Niseko offers "North America-style in-bounds, ungroomed snow and backcountry gates that lead to the good stashes".

It also notes the "cultural immersion" skiers get to experience when travelling to Japan with the addition of onsens, Japanese cuisine, language and architecture creating the ultimate cultural experience.
