Kiroro flies under the radar relative to some of the high profile Hokkaido ski resorts nearby, but the lack of crowds is an advantage for discerning powder hounds who make the most of the abundant snow and the tree skiing.
Kiroro Resort is located in a mountain valley 2hrs drive from Chitose Airport. The top gondola station averages a massive 5m snow base with well over 17m+ in annual snow falls. There are 21 courses with the longest run at 4km. Two well-appointed international hotels are located at the base of the resort and provide over 400 rooms plus a wide range of restaurants and activities.
Kiroro is a place for people who carve a different path. Uncompromised, unspoiled and undiscovered. Kiroro is Five Star snow and lush summer forests in pristine Japanese wilderness. In Kiroro, the winter valleys are the snowiest on earth and the best place to learn to ski powder. The summer forests are abundant with nature and adventure for your family to explore and find your perfect selves. Kiroro is quality over quantity, warm welcomes, attention to detail, excellence at every turn.
