Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.-John Muir
Niseko For All
Never a truer word was spoken by the great mountain lover John Muir, this quote epitomises what it's like to spend time in the mountains in Niseko. Niseko is seeing a skiing, investment and cultural revolution and never have there been a more exciting time to get involved with an area. Investors from all over the world are falling over themselves to make their mark on this town but through the buzz, how does one find a little home or investment opportunity that's right for you? That's where Snow Dog Village comes in.
Why is Niseko so sensational?
Before we get into the details, the most important factor in all of the conversation around innovation in Niseko, the route cause is skiing, the mountains and that famous Japow!
Why is Niseko so sensational?
Niseko has perfect maritime conditions that make for the lightest and driest powder you have ever skied. In the science world its know as the "ocean-effect". In early winter, freezing cold air is blown up from Siberia's frigid plains, absorbing moisture from the Japanese ocean and then depositing on Hokkaido's volcanoes. Pair that with the bitterly cold January air and the optimal western location of Niseko, the results of which are storm after storm to create one of the most snow-sure resorts on the globe.
These conditions have been beckoning extreme skiers for years but now we see families, luxury skiing lovers and property tycoons noticing Niseko for the other elements that make it special like the food, culture and those wonderful onsens. (Who doesn't want a nice hot soak after a long day on the hill?)
Introducing Snow Dog Village
For all these reasons, Nicolas, William and Jo embarked upon the Snow Dog Village project. To create chalet-style apartments that combine a little alpine charm, mixed with Japanese architectural design with an ode to the incredible landscape. The apartment offers a down to earth, homely and friendly place to rest one's head, whether that be for the Winter, as an investment or simply to enjoy from time to time. The apartments come with all the mod-cons as well as being beautifully positioned looking out to the unspoiled forest with ski slopes views as well. The apartments are available to rent and buy, not to mention the extremely exciting plans, they have up their ski jacket sleeves for the complex but it's top-secret, you will have to follow us on social media to hear more.
