NISEKO LIFT TICKETS GUIDE

INTRODUCTION

Niseko Lift Tickets can be purchased for 5 distinct areas within the greater Niseko town.  Each area contributes an individual skiing experience with differences depending on the grade, type of natural terrain and plant growth present.   This is an area rich in natural beauty to be cherished and blessed with the world’s 2nd most annual snowfall that also happens to be the best kind – POWDER SNOW.  All are located along the 1,308m high Mount Annupuri and most can be accessed from the very top of the Mountain.

Most areas offer stunning views of the adjacent Mount Yotei on a clear day.  Located in the Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Kaigan Quasi-National Park, Mount Annupuri sports some of the best powder snow in the world.  A rich variety of ski terrain is framed by a northern forest of old-growth trees.   Niseko offers an unforgettable experience for skiers of all ages and experience levels.

NISEKO UNITED – A SINGLE PASS FOR 4 SKI AREAS

Many visitors wish to experience skiing or snowboarding each of the ski lift areas within the scope of their stay which in the past meant overpaying for tickets as each ski lift operated independently.  That has all been made easier with the formation of NISEKO UNITED which comprises 4 ski areas including ANNUPURI, HANAZONO, GRAND HIRAFU and NISEKO VILLAGE.  These 4 Niseko lift tickets areas now operate under a single “umbrella” governance called NISEKO UNITED.  The advantage is it allows for a single ski pass purchase that permits access to all 4 ski areas.  A fifth and more private area to ski is called MOIWA and operates under different governance requiring a separate ski lift pass although, from 2015 it is accessible by skiing from the top of Annupuri.

Hopefully in the future it too can become part of the Niseko United single pass ticket.  Taken together the wide variety of terrain choices makes Niseko a unique ski resort to ski, snowboard or telemark.  For those interested in backcountry skiing or more extreme adventures, professional guides like Powder Company can be hired independently.
