Fantastic resort for experiencing Japow (Japanese Powder) Well organised with great locations for food at the bottom of the slopes. Includes night snowboarding/skiing under flood lights.

The slope is good for immediate and beginner. Advanced Skier will feel a bit bored doing skiing here unless going to the top of the mountain. There are ski lift that bring Skiers to advance slope at Hirafu side of the Mountain.

When in Niseko, if you want to be out of the crowds, go to Annupuri. Quaint and lovely resort, and the best for backcountry

Quite a quiet area. Decent runs and restaurants at the bottom of the slopes. Main lift station can get a little crowded in peak periods.
