Bring all of your regular ski/snowboard gear (as you would for Whistler). Also, bring warm base layers and a face-mask since it’s cold and powdery.
For some of the runs, we highly recommend you bring your transceiver, probe, shovel. If you don’t have any of this gear, you can rent them in Niseko for approx. $40/day including backpack.
The rental gear at the resort is very good and up to date. Powder snowboards / powder skis are about $50-60 per day.
Work on your cardiovascular ( we mean it) so you’re ready for some of the hikes we do.
