  • Some of the apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows with great views that can extend all the way to Mount Yōtei.
  • Some apartments also have baths and/or outdoor Jacuzzis with the same stunning views.
  • Guests can store their ski equipment at storage facilities right on the slopes. Storage facilities also include heated boot racks.
  • If you do bring your equipment back to the property, there’s a full storage area, including an equipped ski-tuning bench.

Scout tips

  • Arrival and departure shuttles from key transit hubs can be arranged.
  • In-resort services (such as babysitting services and wine delivery) can be easily organized via the concierge.
  • The apartments are about a 5-10 minute walk up the hill to the Ace Family Quad and Pair lifts.


Youtei Tracks is named after the region’s famous volcano, Mount Yōtei, and it has every right to the name – since the volcano itself can be seen through many of the apartments’ windows. You’ll just have to hope for a clear day!

Youtei Tracks was built in 2006 and is situated in the middle of the Upper Hirafu area – making it relatively close to the slopes, but also just a hop, skip and a jump away from the bars and restaurants in the village.

Although the studios are small (at 20sqm) they can fit in a surprising amount, including a microwave, fridge and laundry. There’s also a small couch, but only minimal storage space.

Meanwhile, the apartments at Youtei Tracks are all superbly equipped with full kitchens (including dishwashers, ovens and stovetops).

All studios and apartments are equipped with the LCD satellite TVs, Wi-Fi, and DVD players.

Best of all, you don’t need to lug your ski gear everywhere as you can leave it at a secure equipment locker facility that’s located right on the slopes. At the end of the day you can slip on your comfy après boots and walk home or to the bar – whichever is closer.

Who should stay here

Youtei Tracks is perfect for those wanting good quality self-catered apartments in a great location. Fine for groups, families or couples.

Scout Customer Reviews

The apartment was perfect for us as a family group of 3 couples. Being located within easy walking distance to the main gondola and restaurants and bars was perfect.The kitchen was well equiped and having two bathrooms a must! The regular cleaning of the apartment was excellent. The apartment was well heated and our ski gear was always dry for the next day. We noted our mattresses were a little on the firm side but apart from that we feel we received excellent value staying here. Having our ski gear stored every night by Niseko Central Ski Valet beside the main gondola made our journey to and from the ski field so much more efficient.
