Here's our round up of the reasons why March is a fantastic time for a family holiday to Niseko.
Long & Sunny Days
As we leave the middle of winter behind and spring in to spring, the sun starts to rise earlier and set later, perfect for long days exploring the mountain. The weather will turn in favour of sunshine and bluebird days, great for photography and for taking in the awe-inspiring view that is Mt Yotei free of it's typical cloudy crown.
This is not to say that the snowfall will dry up though! With an average of 14 metres of snow falling in resort each season, the base is super deep by March and regular top ups, some over 30cm, are common during spring.
One of Niseko's biggest draws is it's world class dining scene. Hokkaido produce is famous world-over and the thrill of tasting some of the flavours is matched only by the thrill of tackling Niseko's most exhilirating ski runs. However, in December, January and February, it can be difficult to find a table at the best restaurants unless you've booked months in advance. This problem is less so when Niseko is not at full capacity, so March serves as a wonderful time for a foodie escape.
Some of the best restaurants are An Dining which is conveniently located in the Ki Niseko lobby, Kumo Restaurant and Blackwood Grill.
The Niseko Grand Hirafu Kid's Park
Family fun can be found just metres from Ki Niseko at the Niseko Grand Hirafu Kids Park. Playing with strider bikes, sleds, tubes and snowball makers, a day at the Kids Park is sure to please your little ones, and wear them out too!
