    Above the tree-line in Niseko

If the sun has got his hat on and you’re an accomplished skier or boarder, glide away from the hordes into Niseko’s stunning backcountry. Your guide will tailor the experience to suit your group, but the plan is to set out on foot from Goshiki onsen for a day high above the treeline in a pristine white wonderland, with views over the Niseko range and the Pacific Ocean. The soaring peaks include Iwaonupurri, Nihonupurri and Chisenupuri – and it’s possible to do them all in one day; it’s tough, but you can reward yourself with a beer and a soothing dip in the onsen on your return.
