What's On In Niseko In April 2017
Spring is in the air in Niseko! Find out what's on in April and see why it's an awesome time to come and experience both winter and spring at the same time!
It feels like it was only yesterday that we were writing about what to expect for the month of March and here we are again reporting on what's to come for April! As they say, time flies when you are having fun and since we spent so much time enjoying ourselves in March here in the Niseko area, perhaps that is why time is running away from us!
April is the peak season to experience both winter and spring converging on each other. The temperatures start to consistently rise above the freezing mark, the roads start to clear up making more spring activities possible, and the slopes are still open in the Niseko resorts for spring skiing. Towards the end of the month, flowers will start blooming more and more, but some start as early as the end of March depending on the conditions! If you want a general guide on what to do in spring here in Niseko, you can give that a read, to help you get started with your spring trip planning.
