Resort Feature

So much high-quality powder, only 60 minutes away from Sapporo city

A mere 60 minutes from Sapporo city, and 100 minutes from Shinchitose Airport, the gateway into Hokkaido from the skies. It could only be a miracle that JAPOW can be enjoyed in a place so easy to access. A good 5m of snow covers the mountaintop, and the nearly nightly snowfall resets the courses. What’s more, such a place has super comfortable and convenient lifts and gondolas. Kiroro is awesome!



23 courses that attract day trippers

23 courses with a variety of landforms branch out from 2 peaks of elevations over 100m, with several ungroomed powder courses as well. Although Kiroro had a hideout-like image before, the resort is now a popular destination for 1 day trips from Niseko, Sapporo, and even Otaru. Because of the resort’s constant low temperatures, the powder’s quality remains great from the beginning of the season, making the resort a strongly recommended destination to ride at in early-season.



Kiroro Kids Academy! Offering productive lessons

Kiroro Snow Academy offers a multitude of classes taught by experienced teachers. At Kiroro Kids Academy, the skiing and snowboarding school for children of three years and above, there are half- and one-day courses where children can receive instruction based on their age and level. They use a original curriculum that aims to foster active learning and cultivate children’s independence through coaching and fun experiences, and offer a environment that develops their soft skills.



Five tree run areas to enjoy the great outdoors

Kiroro has five enormous resort-maintained tree run areas across four areas – Asari, Yoichi, Center, and Nagamine – open to the public. Go through the entrance gate and you’ll be greeted by a multitude of backcountry assets, such as beautiful tree runs, a variety of landforms, deep powder spots, and courses perfect for exploration. A lot of the courses are easily accessible via chairlift, and are great fun for experienced riders. Just be sure to enjoy the areas safely at your own risk!
