Nothing says winter fun like a crisp day, fresh powder, and sun glinting off the nearby peaks. So now is a good time to prep with the new book Fifty Places to Ski & Snowboard Before You Die, which asked leading experts in the sport to pick their favorite spots to hit the slopes.

26th October

BUKIT Kiara Properties Sdn Bhd’s (BKP) maiden foray abroad into the Japanese ski resort of Hakuba has a simple story behind it. It connects with one of Datuk N.K. Tong’s passions in life – skiing.

According to him, it has become a sort of family tradition for the Tongs to head to the scenic mountains of Japan for skiing holidays and for some quiet time together. “I have been skiing for the last ten years and came to Hakuba first in February 2004 and in December the same year to Niseko. Since then we have been coming back every year to either resort,” says the affable Tong who is BKP’s co-founder and group managing director.

Niseko in Hokkaido and Hakuba in Nagano are Japan’s famous snow hubs.

But like all good businessmen, the potential of developing something … Read More »

12th October

THERE is something magically pristine about snow – its stark whiteness, the gentle way it falls and the tranquillity associated with wintry outdoors.

Japanese prime ski destination Niseko is the epitome of this. Its undefiled natural surroundings and steady supply of powdery snow brought about by the dry Siberian winds give the resort town its picture-perfect surreality.

Skiers are all too familiar with this gem of a destination, as it continues to grow in popularity. It has also attracted interest from foreign property developers, among them Malaysian companies.

Malaysian developers with a stake in Niseko include the Low Yat Group and YTL Hotels. Foreign players include Hong Kong’s Pacific Century Premium Developments, which is owned by Richard Li, the son of tycoon Li Ka-Shing.

Mount Niseko has four resort areas or ski runs – Niseko Annupuri, Niseko Village, Niseko Grand … Read More »

4th October

Scrambling on all fours to the summit and cursing the heavens wasn’t how I imagined this ski experience would pan out. As the cold bit and the wind rumbled ominously, I started to question what on earth we were doing. But climbing up Mount Yotei, an active volcano, in search of deep powder was never going to be easy.

Most skiers coming to Japan‘s northern island of Hokkaido head for the popular resort of Niseko to experience its pristine snow. But for those who want a non-standard experience, scaling one of Hokkaido’s most iconic volcanoes is too big a temptation to resist.

Yotei, often referred to as Ezo Fuji (or the Mount Fuji) of Hokkaido, is in the Shikotsu-Toya national park bordering the popular towns of Niseko, Kutchan and Makkari on the island’s west coast. While skiing anywhere in Niseko, Yotei towers majestically … Read More »
