Winter Services

The all mountain lift pass grants you access to all four mountains making up the Niseko United Area. We recommend booking your lift pass in advance, as you will save time on getting on the ski slopes and the additional hassle of purchasing your pass at the lift pass counter.

Coach transfers

Coach transfers

Winter 2014/15 Bus times and prices TBC

Coach transfers are a cost effective transfer option from New Chitose airport to the Niseko ski resort. The typical journey takes around 2.5 – 3hrs. Whilst convenient and hassle free, all coach transfer options are scheduled services departing at set times, which may not suit all customers. We offer a range of different services to cover all our guests needs and cut down on the wait time.


Chitose – Niseko transfers

Big Runs bus service is our preferred choice as it offers a to-the-door service, has dedicated staff greeting all International customers and a transfer desk, located in the domestic terminal(*)

Transfers are scheduled to take 3hrs 20min (should the coach be required to stop in Rusutsu) on the way to and from the Niseko ski resort. Big Runs buses drop off and pick up at The Niseko Landmark View, ideal for all NPC customers. Fares are

  • 3,000 yen per person one way
  • 2,000 yen per child one way (11yrs and under)

Another scheduled coach option is the Niseko Airport shuttle (NAS). This service is a faster more direct option than the coach service provided by Big Runs. Like Big Runs, NAS offers a to-the-door service, has dedicated staff greeting all International customers and a transfer desk, located in the domestic terminal(**).

Transfers are scheduled to take around 2hrs 30min on the way to and from Niseko ski resort. Fares are

  • 3,000 yen per person one way

For guests arriving on the last flights into Chitose or departing on an early flight out, Niseko Airport Shuttle is the only scheduled service available. This is an excellent option for guests not wanting to take a private transfer.

  • 6,000 yen per person one way
  • 4,000 yen per child one way (12yrs and under) (Kids 3yrs and under are free)

Sapporo – Niseko transfer

Resortliner bus service offers transfers between Sapporo City and Niseko. The bus service stops at around 20 hotels in Sapporo (if your hotel is not listed the coach will drop you at the nearest hotel).

Transfers are scheduled to take around 2hrs 30min. Fares are

  • 2,300 yen per person one way from Sapporo to Niseko and
  • 3,000 yen per person one way from Niseko to Sapporo (to-the-door service)

(*)No ticket required as all coach transfers are booked in advance. Bookings will be under the same name you used to make your NPC booking, unless you have provided an alternative. The location is shown within the timetable pop up window.

(**)Niseko Airport Shuttle Bus counter is the HIS counter located in the Domestic terminal. The location is shown within the timetable pop up window.
