As is the cycle of life, all things must come to an end – skiing and snowboarding in Niseko included.

Niseko Village and Hanazono will officially cease operations for the 2013/2014 season on Sunday April 6th. However, Niseko Village will restart the lifts for a period between April 26th and May 6th.

Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri plan to keep the lifts spinning right up until May 6th – the end of the Japanese holiday period, Golden Week.

Of course, these are planned operation dates, and things can change in either direction with the weather and snow conditions – last year it actually remained open for longer, fingers crossed!
