Visitor Reviews of Niseko Grand Hirafu

mark from United Kingdom writes:

i was surprised by how old and slow the lifts are for Japan's biggest resort and also how few Japanese were in Hirafu! Some great powder but very busy so the piste is not spectacular after 10am and usually very moguled by late afternoon. Night skiing ok, and prices for food on the mountain cheaper than the Alps. Still disappointed by how much the resort has been taken over by over-loud, obnoxious Australians. it's a pity. As such, I think some other resorts in Hokkaido are better.
