What’s happening today

It is time to hit Annupuri Ski Ground where we will get there early and catch the Annupuri Gondola up for a few quick turns down Utopia then get the blood really pumping with a fast final drop heading back to the gondola via Dynamic Red. After this we will venture out of Gate 1 for some deep powder turns.

Otaru Sightseeing

About an hours drive from Niseko Hirafu towards the sea of Japan you will find Otaru City which is a great place to do some sightseeing and a bit of shopping.
There is a winter evening festival on now until the 12th of February where hundreds of candles float down the canal from 5:00 until 9:00pm creating a spectacular winter scene worth checking out.
