World Ski Awards 2013
Niseko won three categories at the World Ski Awards 2013!! We got winners comments from Director Mr. Tanaka of Niseko Village Ski Resort and chairman Jonathan Martin of NISADE. Please share their comments.
“We were in Kitzbühel amongst the world’s best, and it was still clear to me why The Vale is so revered - it is, of course, world-class. For Japan, after such a difficult period getting recognition for its incomparable snow, this is a fantastic opportunity,” commented NISADE Chairman Jonathan Martin.
"t is our great pleasure that Niseko won the three divisions out of the four divisions of the World Ski Awards. Winning the awards as Japan’s best ski resorts, best ski hotels and the best ski chalet will definitely be a great springboard to increase our guests. The driving forces for Niseko to be awarded as the Japan’s best ski resort were not only the efforts of four ski lift operators, Tokyu, Harmony, An’nupuri and NV, but also the combined efforts of the municipal governments of Niseko and Kutchan, local tourism associations and organizations, and businesses. Our collaboration to welcome visitors was highly valued. We sincerely appreciate the efforts that have been made by the ski lift operators, and all of those who involved in the ski businesses in Niseko.
We are determined to work harder with you to improve visitors’ experience so that they can find something “only Niseko” experience. Now, let’s set our goal to be the world best resort. With assistances of all of locals, we definitely realize our new goal. To this end, we will work to further the collaborative relationship among locals. Thank you." commented Eiichi Tanaka, the Director of Ski Resort ＆ Operations, Niseko Village Co., Ltd.
