Hanazono Niseko

Hanazono is the most modern of the Niseko resorts with the lift infrastructure and base station’s built in the last 10 years since Hong Kong based Pacific Century Premium Developments purchased the resort.

While there are limited accommodation options available in the area at the moment there are big plans with a master resort plan in place and a recent announcement that construction would begin for a Park Hyatt in 2016.

The resort offers a great variety with excellent children’s facilities and ski school from beginners and young children up while also offering snow tube rides and other introductory “snow experiences” for Children and a flying fox for the not so young.

Niseko’s best terrain park is accessed from the Hanazono Quad I with a half pipe and number rail and jump lines for all levels

The trees of Strawberry and Blueberry fields are favorites with film crews and professional skiers (as well as the GoPro clad) while a hike to the Hirafu Peak opens up a wide area of Hanazono unable to be reached from the lift.

Hanazono 308 (named for being exactly 1000m below the peak of Mount Annupuri) is the largest of the on mountain dining spots and is packed at lunchtimes with the famous Kane (Crab) Ramon warming many cold skiers/boarders while some also opting for the Beer towers. While next door Asperges servers up a ski in/out formal dining experience
