It's official! Winter is here in Niseko with the recent opening of Grand Hirafu Mt Resort for the exciting 2016/17 winter season. The lifts are running, the riders are out and even more snow is on the way for an action-packed season ahead.
Skiers and snowboarders have been out and about on the slopes since the opening of Grand Hirafu on November 26th, taking full advantage of the early snowfall. There's been a number of bluebird days and great snowfall since the opening which has been a fantastic start to the season.
What's more is the brand new King Quad Lift #3 is now open and in operation for the season. This high-speed 4-person lift is super smooth to ride and provides access to the Hirafu summit and the Hanazono area. The swift ride up the mountain means more time for downhill-fun.
With Ki Niseko's ski-in ski-out location and exclusive Ski Valet, it's even easier to get more mountain time with convenient access to the Grand Hirafu lifts and Gondola. Simply leave your ski equipment at the Ski Valet every day and pickup the next time you go skiing or snowboarding. Plus, the service is complimentary to Ki Niseko guests!
With more snow well on the way and the season just beginning, it's not too late to book your winter escape. Browse our range of deluxe accommodation options to find the right stay to suit you.
