Take a moment to enjoy the last of the season's snow
Despite the snow having virtually disappeared at the base level, there is still just over 2 meters of snow at the peak of Grand Hirafu. This means that spring skiing and snowboarding are still in full swing at Grand Hirafu.
The lifts are expected to remain operational until Sunday, May 7th, allowing for a fun-filled golden week in the snow. Ki Niseko is conveniently located in close proximity to the Hirafu Gondola, which offers direct access to the open runs at the top of the resort.
