Australian-owned property wins Best Ski Chalet in Japan at inaugural World Ski Awards

Representatives of The Vale Niseko were honoured to accept the award for Best Ski Chalet in Japan at the inaugural World Ski Awards Gala Ceremony on Saturday November 16th.

It was an outstanding hat trick for the Niseko region, with Niseko United taking out Japan’s Best Ski Resort, and YTL being awarded Japan’s Best Ski Hotel. The Vale Niseko’s Australian-owned development and management company, Niseko Alpine Developments (NISADE) is looking forward to the exposure these prestigious awards will afford the Niseko region. 

“We were in Kitzb├╝hel 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. “We are loving the increase in Aussies who visit the area, and we hope this award will raise the profile of Niseko as a ski holiday destination even further.”

The World Ski Awards is the sister organisation of World Travel Awards, which is heralded as ‘the Oscars of the travel industry’. Winners enjoy the distinction of being considered the most outstanding players in the ski tourism industry, as voted by tourism professionals and high-end ski tourism consumers.

The picturesque town of Kitzb├╝hel is the birthplace of skiing, and was the perfect host for the World Ski Awards, a two-day extravaganza sponsored by big names such as Swarovski, Chauffer Driver Audi, and Pan Pacific Canada.

Comprised of 49 individually owned apartments and resort rooms, The Vale Niseko offers the ultimate in luxury ski-in accommodation. With over a third of its investors hailing from Australia, this exceptional complex can only continue to grow in popularity as Australia’s most desirable Niseko holiday accommodation. Designer interiors, 5 star luxury facilities and exquisite views keep even the most discerning of guests coming back year after year, including Japan's very own Prime Minister Abe.
