This year the first Grand Hirafu Gondola ride takes place at 8:25 AM, that's 5 minutes before all other lifts in the resort. At Ki Niseko, we are the closest hotel to the Hirafu Gondola and the perfect location to get to the first tracks before anyone else!
From 3 April, the Gondola will be the only option to ride up to the higher level slopes and terrain, so don't delay and book your Spring Ski holiday with us.
