Niseko Annupuri resort is a part of the Niseko United ski zone, which means you can ski here with the same pass as Hirafu etc. It offers a nice mix of terrain for both beginners and intermediates. Niseko Annupuri has excellent groomed runs that see considerably less crowds than Hirafu so the powder holds out for much longer. For advanced skiers there are some good steep runs but the real treat at Niseko Annupuri is access to Osawa and Kozan-no-sawa. Both of these bowls are outside of the controlled ski area and considered backcountry terrain.
