Located on Japan’s northern island, Hokkaido, Kiroro Ski Resort boasts some of the best powder snow anywhere in the world. Offering a long snow season, five-metre deep falls in a stunning backdrop of unparalleled natural beauty, Hokkaido welcomes skiers of all levels from December to April and lays claim to a vast regulated off-piste and accessible back country.
Where the mountains meet the ocean
The winds from Siberia combined with the cold waters of Hokkaido Island create some of the best white powder snow in the world, with stunning mountain and ocean views all-around.
Kiroro will thrill advanced skiers with large-scale runs and delight learners with high accessibility and easy slopes. This quiet mountain resort features a fantastic lift infrastructure, including high-speed quads.
Access to the resort is by scheduled coach transfer which leaves from New Chitose Airport, Sapporo and takes around 2hrs. For those looking for a longer stay in Hokkaido, Snowscene recommends booking one week Kiroro, one week Niseko for the ultimate snow holiday. Day tours are also available to the historic Otaru port town known for its glasswork and sake distilleries just 40 minutes away from Kiroro in the northwest of Sapporo on Ishikari Bay.
Stay on snow at the brand new Club Med Kiroro Peak hotel for a true ski-in ski-out experience.
