Top 8 Reasons Why Kiroro Should Be Your Next Holiday Destination

Posted on: Aug. 1, 2019

Niseko Alpine Developments is excited to welcome its newest member of their condominium hotel family – Yu Kiroro. Located within Kiroro Resort, Yu-Kiroro will provide the ultimate winter experience that Nisade guests have become accustomed to. 

Below are the top 8 reasons why Kiroro should be part of your next winter holiday destination!

1.Snowiest Resort in Hokkaido
Every resort around the world tend to claim that they have the most powdery, driest snow around but when it comes down to the numbers, Kiroro never disappoints. 

Kiroro has an average annual snow fall of 21 meters with constant low-pressure systems that regularly blow from Siberia across the Sea of Japan, resulting in an abundance of snow being dropped on Hokkaido’s mountain ranges. Consequently, you never have to look too hard to find powder snow in the Resort!

From families looking for a fun filled winter getaway to powder hounds hungry for fresh tracks, Kiroro is quickly becoming an easy choice for many. Located only 90 mins away from New Chitose Airport, 1 hour from Sapporo and 30 mins from the little Port town of Otaru, the accessibility of Kiroro has allowed many near and far to experience all that it has to offer.

3.Exciting Terrain for everyone
With 22 runs throughout the resort, the Pistes in Kiroro cater to all levels; no matter if it is your first time on snow or if you were born skiing or snowboarding! Ski runs are quite evenly divided with enough green, red and black runs to keep you more than satisfied everytime. 

Advanced and expert riders will also be pleased to know about the endless powder in Kiroro’s lift accessed backcountry. Offering some of the steepest terrain in the powder triangle (Kiroro, Rusutsu, Niseko), for years the Kiroro backcountry has been a hotspot for those in search of deep pow. To get the most out of your Kiroro mountain experience, get a local backcountry guide to show you the best spots and to keep you safe. 

4.High Speed lifts
Kiroro has 9 lifts throughout the entire ski resort; including a gondola and 5 high-speed hooded chairlifts. This season, we welcome Kiroro’s newest Combination Lift which will be equipped with an 8-person gondola and a hooded 4-person lift. Only a stone's throw away from Yu Kiroro’s doorstep, this 878m long Combination Lift will take guests directly to the Kiroro Mountain Center which means less hassle and more fun times on the snow with your family and friends.

5.Less Crowds
If you’re sick of heavy lift lines and would like to escape the crowds, Kiroro Ski Resort might be just what you’re looking for. At Kiroro, the mountain awaits you - not the other way around. Whether you’re taking advantage of the side country or just starting on a green run, lift lines are virtually non-existent. 

6.Fun in the Snow – Outdoor Activities 
Although Kiroro Resort is renowned for its world class powder experience, there is much more to do then just skiing or snowboarding. With endless options for outdoor activities such as snow shoeing, cross-country skiing and the infamous snow bubble ball, there is bound to be something for everyone. Challenge yourself on a Snow “Fat bike” or Segway and once you decide you want to give your legs a break, why not take a Snowmobiling or Snow Cat Forest Panorama tour. 

7.Plenty of Non-ski Activities
In addition to the endless array of outdoor fun, there’s also a plethora of family-friendly activities at every corner. Kids and adults alike can experience the fun packed Granship – an all-weather amusement facility packed with activities such as bouldering, ball pits and giant inflatable slides. In the Resort, you can even experience one of Japan’s favorite pastimes – Karaoke! Hire a room for you and your family and friends and sing until your hearts content without the stress of strangers watching. 

After a long day on the slopes, relax your body and mind by taking a dip in the Yu Kiroro onsen one of the many hot springs the resort has to offer. Each onsen has its own qualities, such as different colors and minerals and is known to have great health benefits. Stripping off for an onsen bath can often be quite daunting for many foreigners; to help you have a worry-free experience, don’t forget to read up on the rules of onsen etiquette before going in. 

8.Relax in your Yu Kiroro Condominium
If you’re just looking to kick back and relax, where better to do it then in your own Yu Kiroro Condominium Hotel – Your home away from the everyday. Equipped with kitchen facilities and room for entertainment, Yu Kiroro offers their guests all amenities of home and so much more. Enjoy the magnificent mountain views and experience the luxury that you truly deserve!

Don’t miss out! Kiroro is waiting for you. Book your holiday now!
