Grab a Goggle Cloth
In this weather it is always a good idea to have a google cloth.
High quality durable micro fibre cloths of the 2013/2014 Niseko United Trail Map are on sale throughout Hirafu as well as Niseko Village and Hanazono 308 for 1,500 yen. The cloths work really well for cleaning goggles and are a great souvenir.
