For you skiers and snowboarders who love the spring snow, the slopes of Niseko Grand Hirafu and our Shiki and Koyuki accommodation is the place to be! The spring season's powder mixed with bluebird days and warmer temperatures, uncrowded ski slopes, lift lines, discounted lift passes and accommodation is very inviting.

Niseko's low season is an entirely different experience than taking your holiday during the busy high season. With less tourists and more locals enjoying the mountain, some say it's more of a unique time to be here. This past March we had many deep powder days inbounds and out in the nearby backcountry. With so much powder mixed with days of sunny spring corn snow it's unbelievable that it's considered low-season. April began with 3 days of amazing powder and has since warmed up the groomed runs for fast spring turns and great park riding. It's a perfect time of year to get out to explore the surrounding area of Niseko and easy to do with our free 4WD 7 seater van parked in the Shiki Koyuki garage. Start her up at your leisure and drive up the mountain for a day on the slopes then cruise to one of the many quiet onsens in the area to fully relax. Take an easy drive to Kutchan or Niseko town and have your choice to dine at one of the many great restaurants and use it to stock up on groceries.

There are many day trips to enjoy like the quick drive to Lake Toya or to the coast to get a different perspective on Mt. Youtei. Park our van at one of the many car parks and start your backcountry mission. The convenience of having a vehicle is yours when you stay with us. The culture and kind people of Hokkiado's beautiful island will make an unforgettable spring ski holiday for you, your friends and family.
