  • Information

    Rhythm Snowsports is Niseko's leading ski and snowboard equipment rental store.

    Rhythm is the top choice for ski and snowboard rental during your stay at Ki Niseko. Rhythm offers the best range of rental equipment in the area, a service and returns counter located in the Ki Niseko Ski Valet, and a pick-up service for customers collecting their pre-booked rental items.

    • Collect your rentals from 16:00 the day before you rental start date, from the centrally-located Rhythm Snowsports store.
    • Return your rentals at the Ki Niseko Ski Valet at the end of your stay.

    Note: Collection of equipment at Ki Niseko is not possible. Equipment must be properly sized for safety and comfort, so customers must go to the Rhythm Snowsports main store for pick-up.
