The heart of Niseko’s powder-laden ski resorts

Hirafu Village is home to Niseko Grand Hirafu Ski Resort – the largest of the ski resorts that make up Niseko United. With the largest area of the four ski resorts, Grand Hirafu boasts incredible powder snow while Hirafu Village offers an exciting array of restaurants, bars and chalets at the base of Mt Annupuri.

HIRAFU SNOW

Hirafu is naturally endowed with 12 meters of annual snowfall. It’s not unusual for it to snow every day for weeks on end. The quality of the powder is particularly good, with just the right amount of moisture coming from the Siberian winds over the Sea of Japan to the north of Mt Annupuri.
