Congratulations to the winners of the latest World Ski Awards!
As Japan's borders re-open in time for winter, attention turns again to the world class ski resorts in this amazing country. Japan has a well-earned reputation for incredible snow to go alongside high-quality resort accommodation and great service and the winners for this year's World Ski Awards have just been announced.
Japan's Best Ski Hotel: The Westin Rusutsu Resort
Located in Rusutsu, this hotel pipped some excellent competition to pick up this year's award. Rusutsu Resort is famous for the quality of the snow and also the easy access to side-country and tree runs. With several real estate options, including The Vale Rusutsu, this is an exciting resort to consider for investment with land options available at a fraction of the price of Niseko.
Japan's Best Ski Boutique Hotel: Ki Niseko
Ki Niseko is a multiple-award winning property located right next to the high-speed gondola of Niseko-Hirafu resort. Check out more information about this hotel by clicking here, including the current investment options on the resale market which range from corner suites to one of the penthouses!
Japan's Best Ski Chalet: Aspect Niseko
Located in the centre of Niseko-Hirafu village, Aspect Niseko is well-placed to access the ski hill as well as the best restaurants and bars in the resort. Click here to check out all the Hirafu properties currently listed on Uchi.
Japan's Best Ski Resort: Appi Kogen
Previous winners like Niseko United and Rusutsu were pipped to the post by Appi Kogen this year. With over 20 runs covering more than 43km of skiable terrain this resort is located in the north of the main island of Japan. Interesting it is the location for the new Harrow International School, but the resort itself boasts famous hotel brands like the ANA InterContinental and ANA Crowne Plaza Resort.
Congratulations to all the Japanese winners!
