Niseko United is the largest ski complex in Japan. Consisting of four snow fields: the Niseko Grand Hirafu, Niseko Annupuri Kokusai, Niseko Village and Niseko Hanazono, it is among the top four places in the world for snowfall. If you have enough money, Hokkaido is incredibly enjoyable! Not only are Japanese ski instructors professional, they are all of a good standard themselves. The slopes here are laid in such a way that each skier is able to see the magnificent Mt. Yotei, which is known as the "Mount Fuji of Hokkaido". At night in particular, as the lights flicker, descending from the top of the mountain is like being in an ancient fairy tale kingdom. The four snow fields are separated from each other and are only connected at the top of the mountain. At the bottom, you need to take a shuttle bus. Only below the Niseko Grand Hirafu is there a small town which is primarily filled with tourists from Europe and America. Asian faces are a rare sight. In addition to skiing, the site boasts a variety of natural hot springs allowing visitors to experience holidays that are at once both hot and cold. It is almost like being in the ski towns of the Alps! For beginners, the Annupuri snow field is a good fit as it is dominated by gentle slopes. Cable Car Tips: Skiing in a given area is free but you need to purchase a cross-area pass (7400 yen per day) when you take the cable car. Beginners might consider buying a 12 point ticket (because there is no need to take the cable car to the top of the mountain in order to descend from the high peaks, and the bunny slope will allow people to use sleds for 1 point each time). Transportation: Sapporo New Chitose Airport has direct access to the Niseko one-way bus (Whiteliner bus), which takes about 3 hours. You can also set off from the JR Sapporo Station and ride to the Niseko Station (2 hours and 40 minutes). From there a bus or taxi can get you to the slopes in about 20 minutes.

In Sölden, Austria, the snow first begins to fall in September. Sometimes lasting until May, the super-long snow season attracts even the American alpine ski team to train here. Daniel Craig who played 007 is also a fan. With places like this it is little wonder that a country as small as Austria (total population only 8 million) has won so many medals in the Winter Olympics that it is ranked top three in the world! The Chinese often say that winter snow presages a good harvest. Here, it quite simply symbolizes a paradise of super-longlasting powdered snow. In the nearby Kitzbühel, Austria, there is a legendary ski slope famous to every skiier in the world. The Strief. This slope is so steep and the speeds which skiers often reach (as high as 40m/s) make even world champions nervous. It's like some kind of magic charm that will make you lose weight just looking at it! Do you know? Of the top ten calorie-consuming sports, cross-country skiing and snowboarding account for two places, and can consume more than 500 calories per hour. Because skiing requires that you move all of your muscles from your head to your toe, it is a high-intensity full body workout.

The winter resorts in the Alps are spread across six separate countries! The Austrian part of the Alps is twice the size of the Swiss part of the Alps! In the early part of the 20th century, Mr. Hannes Schneider wrote the "Arlberg Technique" which became known as the "Ski Bible". It formed the basis of modern skiing techniques and spread skiing techniques and methods all over the world. Thanks to its excellent geographical conditions, Austria has 76 ski areas and more than 800 snow fields! How about that! If you love skiing, are you able to wait or do you have to go? NOW? Now. Now. Now. Let’s go skiing together! (Some pictures sourced from the internet)
