Why use our Shuttle Service?
With high volumes of snow in the winter and icy road conditions, Skye Niseko does not recommend driving to or anywhere in the resort between December and March. Daily snowclearing by large snowplows is required while minor accidents or slips can take a long time to resolve. In addition, Japan has a zero tolerance for drinking and driving. Parking spots are in short supply both at Skye Niseko and throughout the resort.
