Studio / 1 Bedroom / 2 Bedrooms / 3 Bedrooms

Built in 2006, the Youtei Tracks apartments were, for many years, the best in town. Admittedly, things have moved on and there are now several über luxurious places to stay in Niseko, but that's not to say that these apartments can not still hold their own - they are well located in the upper village, plenty spacious, well-designed and now have been re-furbished with stylish contemporary furnishings. Standards have not dropped at all at Youtei Tracks,(the bar was simply raised elsewhere), and they therefore remain, without any doubt, an excellent deluxe option.

The imposing building comprises of studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments for up to eight guests - a great choice for both couples and families. The studios are like hotel rooms, but with small kitchenettes and, rising through the categories, some of the larger penthouse apartments are huge, with private Jacuzzi baths on the roof terrace. Large windows allow for maximum natural light, most having wonderful views and some with balconies, and these apartments provide spacious, open plan layouts with minimalist design features and tasteful modern prints on the walls. 

There is a large basement area with laundry facilities, secure ski/snowboard storage, fully equipped ski tuning area and drying room.
