Igloo Building

Anywhere with large amounts of snow is good for igloo building, and Niseko certainly has plenty of snow!
Your guide will give you tips on the building method depending on the snow conditions at the time and will help you design a sturdy and safe igloo. In Niseko, the most common igloo building technique is to build a mound of snow, let it harden and then dig out your igloo. This is a great activity to do on a family winter holiday in the snow either over the festive season.
