Even if you’re not skiing, this is a wonderful activity for a 25 min round-trip ride. The views are spectacular and you’ll love the dramatic powdered ski slopes Niseko is famous for.

I love annupuri as compared to other ski grounds in Niseko. Beginners have to option do take the quad lifts and be able to do longer runs than in other places. On a not-so-good days with less pow or on a sunny day, choose annupuri....More

Niseko is a nice ski area. Everyone can choose the slopes they like. The backcountry is why you come here. Try the gates on a powday.

We counted over 500 people waiting at lunchtime on a Wednesday for this gondola. It's moves rlatively quickly but for the excessive lift pass price you would expect better than a Perisher liftline

Much better than Grand Hirafu, in my opinion. The slopes are legendary and the powder unrivalled. The gondola also has excellent and cheap Japanese curry for when the hunger pangs bite.

ok little ski resort, not worth the bus trip out from niseko, better to heading off to rusutsu as there are more runs to do and better snow conditions as well.

I found it hard to access because of the amount of stairs. Height inside was limited as well as storage for skis. Once up the top the mountain was fabulous!

Its the quietest amongst all in the area, and has many gates to enter, plus it has many options for beginners/ intermediate levels too. Although it is not so accessible, it is worth a half day or full day in this area. Convenient especially if...More
