Spring waterfall haru no taki in Niseko Hirafu

Between Niseko Grand Hirafu Ski Ground and Niseko Village Ski Ground there is a strictly off limits area called Haru no taki,’spring waterfall’ in English. Over night the Niseko region was hit by torrential rainfall and strong winds resulting in large scale melting and avalanches. Today Haru no taki has been flowing strongly for the first time this year.

Below is a slightly different panorama 360niseko is experimenting with. It is a multitiled resolution image. Instead of having one image loaded to display the panorama there are lots different sized versions of the same image stacked together which are viewable at different zoom ratios. This allows us to upload high resolution images that have more detail.Try it out, zoom in and have a closer look at haru no taki!


Click and drag on the image and zoom in and out to look around.

We are still looking for for an application that will allow us to format this type of content for mobile devices. The panorama will only work on PC’s.

The season is far from over here in Niseko. There is another month of fantastic spring skiing to me had in Niseko Grand Hirafu Ski Ground.
