Watch The Magic Of Niseko Night And Day
Follow these riders as you marvel at the beauty and thrill of riding at night, and day, in Niseko.
There's something utterly magical, and memorable, about gliding down the slopes of Niseko when the mountain is lit up for night skiing each winter. From afar, the resort looks completely enchanted, like it is an unworldly place dotted with stars, and then when you get up close and ride the runs and feel the buzz, you are blown away by just how clear to the eye night riding can be.
Not only is it wonderfully beautiful to look at with the lights dotted along the mountain, but you also get that little sense of satisfaction that you're getting even more time on the mountain and experiencing something that not everyone will during the season. Night riding is a unique experience that you will take away with you long after you leave Niseko.
When we saw this award-winning film by Felt Soul Media, that was shot in Niseko, capturing not only the magic of night riding but also daylight slope action, we just had to share it. The film really does capture the charm and wonder of night riding and the beauty of Niseko, both during the night and the day.
Want to give night skiing a try this winter? The night skiing period is for a limited time during the winter season is scheduled to open in Niseko from December 10th, 2016, so you won't have to wait much longer!
