ABOUT NISEKO

Over the past 25 years Niseko has grown into the most renowned Hokkaido ski resort owing to its status as a powder paradise for skiers and snowboarders in search of the best ski destinations in the world. Niseko’s combination of incredible deep powder snow, stunning hotels and chalets, atmospheric buzz, and countless village amenities are among the many reasons for its popularity.

Niseko United Ski Resorts

What we refer to as Niseko ski resort is actually more than one ski resort on one mountain, Mt. Annupuri.  There are 4 individual resorts which have grouped together to form Niseko United and these are Niseko Grand Hirafu, Niseko Hanazono Resort, Niseko Village Ski Resort and Annupuri International Ski Area.  There is no need to choose between resorts however, as all 4 Niseko United ski areas are covered under the same All Mountain lift pass and connected both by upper ski lifts and bus routes that connect the base of the ski areas.

Niseko has many other attractions during winter too; access off-piste terrain suitable for lower-intermediate to expert skiers and snowboarders; try your hand at snowshoeing, tubing, catskiing, dog sledding, or snowmobiling; discover the wonderful retail and gift shops of Niseko Village; and enjoy your nights out as much as your days on the mountain with incredible restaurants and countless cafes and bars to suit all tastes, from cosy izakaya to Michelin star fine dining.

In addition to the 4 interconnected Niseko United resorts described below is Niseko Moiwa, located on the Western side of Annupuri. Moiwa is a smaller but very popular ski area due to the same amount of excellent powder snow with a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere.

Niseko Hanazono Resort

Hanazono is the most easterly of the Niseko United resorts. Two new lifts, including the Symphony Gondola, plus new restaurants and accommodation at the base of the ski lifts mean Hanazono is one of the most exciting areas to ski. Great beginner and intermediate runs are offered while the backcountry gates offer superb access to steep and deep powder for advanced skiers and snowboarders. Hanazono 308 offers Niseko’s largest range of family activities, and night skiing is now also available.

Niseko Grand Hirafu Resort

Grand Hirafu is the largest Niseko ski area with the widest range of accommodation, shops, restaurants and bars. And if that isn’t enough, Grand Hirafu allows you to experience the exhilarating wonder of fresh powder snow under lights with arguably the world’s best and most extensive night skiing. While most Niseko resorts require a traverse at the top of the mountain to ski from one to the other, you can access Hanazono from the top of Hirafu’s Swinging Monkey chair lift, making it easy for intermediates to ski between the two resorts.
