Mountainwatch | Press Release

Niseko Alpine Developments [NISADE] has recently announced that they will join the Vail Resorts and Niseko United Epic Pass initiative by offering pass holders a discount at their award winning flagship property, The Vale Niseko.

Epic Pass holders already enjoy unlimited skiing at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado; Canyons in Park City, Utah; as well as Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in Lake Tahoe. In February this year Vail Resorts Inc. announced the pass would also extend to include five days at the famously powdery slopes of Niseko United, Japan, ensuring that Epic Pass holders are spoilt for choice when it comes to world-class skiing destinations.

Excited by the international opportunities afforded to the Niseko region as part of this partnership, NISADE have contributed to this globe spanning enterprise with a season-long discount at The Vale Niseko, a rare occurrence at this award winning, ski-in, ski-out boutique hotel.

‘The Epic Pass is for those who want the best when it comes to skiing,’ comments NISADE Chairman Jonathan Martin. ‘They want a selection of the world’s best ski fields, and with the inclusion of Niseko United they’re also going to get the world’s best powder. We are here to offer them the best ski-in accommodation in the world’s best powder.’

Epic Pass Season holders need only quote their pass number at the time of booking to secure this exclusive discount.

The Vale Niseko is acclaimed on an international level for its deluxe ski in, ski out accommodations, and enjoyed a win at both the World Ski Awards and the International Property Awards last year. As a strong contender for the title of World’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel 2014, the future looks bright for this luxurious hotel.

‘The world is continuously becoming more accessible,’ remarks Mr. Martin, ‘and so is the ski industry. An international ski pass is going to be the way of the future, and we are thrilled to be part of such an early step in this direction.’
