Visitor Reviews of Niseko Grand Hirafu

powder rat from Australia writes:

Well, I thought I'd give Niseko another go and have spent most of the 2018/19 season here. There has been a massive increase in new beds in the resort with no increase in ski lifts or skiable area. This has resulted in massive crowds on the slopes and big waiting times for lifts. Hanazono 1 regularly 15 minutes, Annapuri and Niseko Village gondolas regularly 20 minutes..it's terrible. The powder is tracked out in record time. Annapuri bowls, Kamikaze, Strawberry Fields by 9.30 every powder day...it's ridiculous. Things are only getting worse as there are another 500+ beds due for completion at Hanazono next season so that place will be tracked in record time. Restaurants in Hirafu are fully booked every night and prices have doubled over 3 years. Such a shame. Paradise ruined by the greed of foreigners.
