Spread over two peaks, the pistes are varied and well-groomed, but the real appeal of Kiroro Ski Holidays is its Powder Zone and off-piste - the backcountry was recently opened up, with three designated points giving easy access. For the best powder skiing, we usually head for the trees. Kiroro is a resort in the truest sense as there is no village or town, instead the resort is based around the two main hotels. There is also the Mountain Centre at the base of the slopes, with a ski rental shop, café and kids’ area.

Tribute Portfolio Hotel
Of Kiroro’s two accommodation options, this 282-room hotel has the most going on. It’s just down the road from the ski area, with a regular shuttle service plying the route each morning. For post-ski relaxing, you can use the local swimming pool and hot spring. It’s also worth paying a bit extra for the outdoor onsen at Shinrin No Yu Spa, next door to the hotel.
The guest rooms are mostly Western-style. The sleek, sophisticated rooms (all non-smoking) come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffee making facilities, plus safes and mini fridges. Some rooms feature mountain views. Suites add living rooms; some have whirlpool tubs. Room service is offered.
Another big plus of staying here is the mall-style walkway next-door - there’s enough to keep you entertained, with shops, a games arcade, and classic karaoke bar.

|Kiroro Ski Package - 35% off Lodging Kiroro is an under-the-radar resort with uncrowded slopes, more powder than Niseko and arguably some of the best tree skiing in Japan. This modern ski resort was built in 2001 and is located just two hours from New Chitose Airport in Sapporo. Kiroro is located 1 hour from Niseko so makes for a great addition to a Hokkaido powder tour.|
